i was sick- my last 6 days of year- had vacation- was down and sick every day
oh well- that's fine- we're still gonna start fresh as of dec 31st- my day back to work
had a good 31st- work- exercise-food
ok, now we're on a roll
leave for work this morning- 5:39 a.m.-- make it 1 block-- NO ONE's up on New Year's Day at 5:30 a.m.!!!-- this young lady- mid-twenties??? blows through a stop sign and BOOM- in the intersection- now, i always watch this corner, cuz, my way does NOT have a stop sign, the cross street does, and yes, people are bad about stopping
i have no idea where she came from- i NEVER saw her
i was driving- heard a boom- then a guy asking me if i was ok
my car is TOTALED!! 2 yrs old..........and it's in pieces........
call the cops
i think i'm ok- yes- chest is sore- pretty sure it's from the seat belt and air bag, but, just sore
cops are busy- does this only happen here?? it's 8:45 when they finally show up?? 3 hours....it was below zero- my car's dead- NO HEAT!! NO ONE came out of houses and offered a warm house, or car, or bathrm- NOTHING!!
cops arrive- GUESS WHAT??? she has NO insurance........imagine that!!!
car tow-ers are running late too- BUSY.......takes til 10 a.m. for them to tow my car
did i mention- when my tow truck got there (thank you AAA)-- the young lady went and tried to get him to do HER car!!! ggrrrrr..........
I AM FREEZING!!! i finally get home.......hurt so bad decide it just can NOT be normal-- can not even move/breathe w/o pain
let's see--------where's my car??
think i'll taxi to urgent care- well sheesh.......it's a holiday
so i get a taxi to hospital-- wow-- our taxi drivers are NOT nice-- didn't help me at all as i'm walking bent over......
so then i spend 6 1/2 hrs in emergency rm.........they did take 1 look at me walking in and got me in a bed- hooked up an EKG........i've been sick- lots of coughing- well my chest hurts too bad to cough- so i'm audibly wheezing all over.......
chest x-rays- dr is more worried about my breathing than my sore chest
also x-rayed my HUGE thumb......guess i jammed it somehow
x-rays are fine- no pneumonia- nothing broken
dr just says i'll be sore for a WHILE.......a while?? is that 2 days- a month??
i can't go to work like this......i doubt i'm even gonna try and make it upstairs to bed tonight-- hurts to lay down-- think i'll try the chair
and i'm FREEZING!!! hands are like ice- i'm still in my shoes and coat from when i was at hospital.......delayed shock??
did i mention that young lady was dressed in a coat and shoes-- nothing on her legs?
by the time cops got there, no way could they tell if she was drunk
of course-- her neck and back hurt.......screaming how i better have insurance.....as she's taking pictures with her camera phone
cop believes they'll total my car out-- i don't believe that's usually a good deal.......
i still can't believe it
now i'm stopped in my daily exercise
stopped in how much i need to get done here
stopped in how much i have to do at work
just hoping............this'll be my worst of 2011???
thanx for the support ya'all
hope your New Year's started a LOT better than mine!!!
