a funny thing happened on the way to work today

car 2

i got in a car wreck. yes people. i was stopped with my turning signal on to turn into the gas station when i got *slammed* into from behind. it was a pretty hard impact, probably because i was completely stopped. he said he didn’t see me. i don’t know how he couldn’t have seen me. i’m really lucky the damage to my car isn’t any worse. it doesn’t really seem to be dented at all.

car 1

so, i missed my lunch date today, spent a good hour in the gas station parking lot waiting on the gsp and then dealing with the other guy’s insurance company, and then i spent about 3 hours at our lovely hospital getting checked out because my head and back hurt. it turns out i have a concussion. i guess it’s a good thing the doctor ordered a ct scan even though he “didn’t see the need for one”. or maybe our hospital’s er should start employing real doctors and not just physician’s assistants.

now, i have to work late for elections tonight, and my head and back are killing me. i can’t take the meds the doctor prescribed because i can’t drive after taking them. can you tell that i’m grouchy??

    Get yourself straight to the doctor and get a full checkup. Seriously, if there are lasting effects you want to show that you did everything you were supposed to. I’m so glad you are OK!!!
