I got hit this morning.
While turning onto the freeway on ramp, from the right most left turn lane, but second off the light, I got hit head on by the guy, who decided he was going straight, when the lanes going left on his side started going.... He accelerated hard... straight into my front end. Both airbags deployed, and the impact to my chest (disadvantage of being short) and smoke triggered an asthmatic panic attack. My face feels like someone Bitch slapped me around.
I am now trying to learn to use crutches. I have seatbelt and airbag abrasions on my chest and arms. My left knee is swollen up quite large and getting very painful. My right ankle is huge and won't let me put any weight on it at all. The impact knocked my glasses off and into the dash vent. And soon after my neck and back started spasming. And both wrists and elbows aching, the Dr. said it was from bracing against the steering wheel. It's funny, because the neck muscles are actually warmer to the touch than the surrounding tissue. Vicodan and ice as well as the clonopan is all they can do at the ER. And they felt that the traffic was too heavy to be on a back board till they got me to my Hospital. So, we compromised. I am really glad that I wasn't wearing my usual flip-flop and shorts uniform, as I am positive the heavy Ug type boots with hiking socks saved my ankle from worse injury. The pain pills are wearing off now ... and I think I am going to crutch my way to bed for a while... a friend is going to pick up the pain RX for me and check on me, and make sure I eat. My little car is probably dead... I've already cried over that... and I'll do it again... I loved my little mid-life crisis car.

Ugh! I was in a serious accident six years the neck and back injury. Ice and heat...alternate every 1/2 hour or so. Flexiral works well too...and it's not a narcotic. Take care of yourself Kat!
