Well, things WERE going very, very well.
Unfortunately, I was involved in a car accident on October 5th, Friday evening. I am still so upset, still hurt, not recovering as fast as I’d like, and so motherfucking frustrated I don’t really even know which way to go.
I’ve been blessed by amazing friends that have gone above and beyond the call of duty for me and I am eternally grateful. but inside my head? Is a flat out mess.
I have to keep a positive face for the public but I want to cry. It’s NOT the end of the world but try telling my Bipolar Brain that.
Me, Jackie, and Erica were going to get something to eat after BodyFlow on that evening and were in fact, about 200 feet from our destination.
A girl driving towards us made an abrupt turn into our path, trying to turn at an intersection, and wham.
We were going about 40mph, she didn’t signal, she didn’t slow down (Jackie swears she heard her accelerate to try to get across in time), there were NO tire marks that indicated she was aware of anything.
I believe she was texting. We’ll find out when it gets there. I had to hire an attorney. Not happy about that. I hate this kind of stuff. But I can’t workout. And I’ve lost wages, had to go to the freaking emergency room in an ambulance.
My Dr. thinks I have a stress fracture on a rib or two, not sure. They don’t show up right away. I do know that the seat belt got up UNDER my rib cage and that I couldn’t even OPEN A DOOR because it hurt so badly the first 5 days.
I was getting better but unfortunately, the swelling in the cartilage got so bad that my ribs popped back out of place late on last Friday night, October 12. I couldn’t get into to see anyone and by the time I did on Saturday, it had irritated my ribs so bad that they are STILL not in place.
I’ve taped myself up and been using a Tens unit and ice to try to get the swelling down but it’s just not happening yet.
Thank God, Erica was wearing her seat belt too otherwise she would have come forward and been hurt far worse AND hurt me worse too. We were all wearing seat belts.
Probably the scariest thing that has ever happened to me in my LIFE.
I just, I don’t even like to think about it which is why I haven’t written. I’m a bit of a mess right now.
