car accident

Friday, June 19, 2009

wednesday i was on my way to school and got into a car accident. my car was totalled but i survived with some serious battle scars all over my arms and face and a big ol seatbelt tattoo across my body. most of the bruises came from the airbag itself, and i went to the doc yesterday and got xrays and those came out fine, so no broken bones or fractures.
i'm highly doped up right now on vicodin and flexeril(sp?) and now that i'm out a car it's going to be really hard to keep up with going to the gym.
i can borrow the boyfriends car for now but until he gets his insurance renewed i'm not taking it anywhere unless i absolutely have to go there. which means school 4 days a week, and that's it.
if anyone lives in the DFW area and has a cheap reliable car they want to get rid of, let me know. i've got maybe one or two options open atm and neither of them are great.
i walked around the block yesterday and today just to get some sort of exercise, but if i try doing anything with my upper body that requires lifting or straining, even on vicodin it hurts bad, so im not sure what i can do as far as exercise goes for the next week at least until this pain goes away.
on the upside of things when i went to the doc yesterday i was forced to look at my weight on the scale, and i have lost 5 lbs in just under two weeks... i think that's good! i think... well it's something.
eyes getting heavy now, gonna go pass out and feel worthless again. update soon.

    I am so glad you are okay. What a scary experience. Congrats on the 5 pounds. It is always nice when there is a silver lining of some sort. Take it easy until you feel better. Especially until you are off the meds. You don't want to aggravate any injuries. Like someone else mentioned, for now do what you are doing and just keep walking. Hopefully, soon, you will feel well enough to start GRADUALLY getting back to where you were.

    sorry to hear you were in an accident! At least you are alive, thank goodness! I would take it easy and ask the doctor when it will be okay for you to start working out again.

    You are a very lucky lady, take it easy until you are fully recovered from the bruising etc.
    Easy walks around the block and watching your food which you are doing untill you feel back to 100% is great.
    Good luck at finding a new ride and your weight loss to date every pound lost is a good thing.
    Take care of yourself
