Irony

While detouring around an accident, I was rear ended by a fully loaded work van. Dude said he hit the brakes and they failed. Four inch intrusion into my trunk, his van fared much much worse, tore off his bumper, ripped out a headlight, bent the hood and part of the frame bent under into the wheel. Ford Fusion > crappy Chevy van.

I got a free ride to the ER, on a backboard which should be registered as a torture device. Nothing broken, neck and back sprained real good, doc says to expect to feel way worse the next few days, and rest a lot. Got good drugs, will try not to drug post. Much. Just sayin'.

Id wait before you sign any insurance claim papers.

My mom was in a similar accident, though there was hardly no damage to either vehicle. She started feeling pain in her neck/back a week or so later.

Dang, ma'am.
Take care of yourself.

I would milk the accident victim thing and make VR give me back rubs and bring hot tea upon command.

Yeah. Doc gave me the name of a back specialist if I still hurt in a week. Basically, right now I feel like I got hit by a truck. Ba dum dum.

Sorry about the accident and glad that you are well enough to post for now.

Backboards gotta be a special form of torture for most of us! I know it would be for me!

Get well soon!

Why is this night different than any other? :D

On a positive note, two nurses noticed my nails and my fabulous new ( to us, was in a model home) 4 poster canopy bed was delivered while I was out so I get to pretend I'm a Queen while I recover.

Well that sucks...sorry to hear. Look forward to your subsequent drug posts, though. Make sure you're watching some bizarre paranormal movies at the same time

I got ice, ice, baby!! I will switch to heat in a day or so.

I am not mad, I know it was an accident, but I wouldn't be shocked to learn he was texting or looking down or something.


Also, cause it was a twisty two lane rd they couldn't get the stretcher right up to me, so I had to stand up, lean against the backboard and do a trust fall I am not a skinny woman. That was possibly the scariest part of the whole thing! Maybe of my life! I was sure they were gonna drop me and wipe themselves out.

Brilliant!

Thanks all, I'm grateful it wasn't any worse than it was. I'm baffled that he managed to hit me pretty much dead center, but damaged the right front of his van. I guess he was skidding?

Yea, it sounds like his momentum was not straight on, given it tore his bumper off. Was the pavement wet?

Somewhere at the edge of the grass was a deer watching and laughing. Probably ran in front of the van to distract the driver too, so you'd get hit

Quick, someone take away the ban-hammer before she goes mad with drugs and power!!!!


I was hit back in August, and I'm still waiting on the other insurance to settle for the Mrs's injuries. That was a 16-yo girl who also totaled a vehicle in May.

Mostly all okay, and glad to hear it's the same for you. If ya need a laugh, drop in here....


....of course, laughing may hurt, so it's your call.

God! first the deer and now.......Sorry, hope you feel better soon.

I feel for yah. In the 1960's I was rear-ended and it shortened my Plymouth 4-door's frame 18" (by a Cadillac at over 100).

Anyway, I had a big bruise on my lower back and over 50 years later I have times when I can't walk without bed rest.

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE the possibility of soft tissue damage. It takes a while to resolve problems.

I do find relief at the worse times via Relafen. About a dozen in as many years.




Side note: I was buying earrings for the G'daughters and I wondered if you ever tried to make short chain maille strands for earrings? Just a thought.

100 mph!! Holy mackerel!

I'm prepared to feel like doodoo,so maybe it won't seem bad by comparison.


Ps- I do beading, it's Mrskitty who does the chain maile. I have zero patience for jump rings! ( although for earrings I can't imagine it'd be as stressful).
