This afternoon I had to go pick up some pre-employment paperwork. Then I headed home to drop off my ten year old daughter before heading over to get my drug test done. I just passed the railroad tracks and was sitting in line, waiting for the stoplight to turn green, when out of nowhere, I’m thrown forward! Someone had rear-ended me. Fortunately, both me and my daughter as well as the other two people in the Lexus behind me were okay. The other party was apologizing to me and looked really bummed. My daughter and I were pretty shaken up.
Since they were sitting right on the railroad tracks, I suggested we pull into a parking lot. I called 911 and waited for the police officer to arrive. We swapped insurance, the officer took my statement, then handed it back to me. Everyone went their own ways. I asked my daughter if she was okay. She was a bit shaken up still, as was I.
On the drive home, I was feeling a slow growing pain in my neck. By the time I got to the place to take my drug test, my back was aching…well, more like tingling. My family has seen our share of back/spine/neck injuries and I’m well aware of how important preventative care is.so I called my husband to contact our daughter’s chiropractor. They were already closed for the day, so I’ll have to get her in tomorrow. I went to one as well, because within two hours, my neck and back were definitely feeling the pain.
But..my poor Camry, oh how it suffered. I’m so frustrated and sad. And yet, I’m so very thankful that we are alive. Things could have been much worse. I have to go back tomorrow to my chiropractor, to see what the X-rays showed. I also called my car insurance but the wait time was like 19 minutes. So I went online and filled out a claims report. Who knows if I filled it out right…Ugh…
That’s all I have to report for now.
