I honestly think that in a past life my sole profession was “person in charge of breaking mirrors.”
I was rear ended at a stop light yesterday.
The damage was much worse than the last time this happened. Mainly because it was a big ass truck with some type of contraption on the front. Also, he was going a lot faster and if I hadn’t been driving defensively, my car would be a giant accordion right now.
I went to the hospital this morning, as I woke up very sore. I think the adrenaline from the accident hid most of this last night.
Thankfully, nothing was broken, but there was a lot of bruising and there is quite a bit of inflammation on my back/neck/shoulder area. Different place than last time at least. The doctor couldn’t believe how much bruising was along my collarbone from the seatbelt. I actually hadn’t noticed it until I got home last night. I do bruise easily though, and those heal.
Just so frustrated, as it took me so long to recover from the last accident. I am hoping as I am in better shape, it won’t take as long now.
Oh, and did I mention the idiot that hit me didn’t even have a valid license?
Hoping I won’t have too much problem with ICBC, but apparently I cannot get my car fixed until the other driver files a claim. No idea how this works if he doesn’t file. Shall know more on Wednesday when I meet with the adjuster. At least everything I need to get to is in walking distance.
Now, a few days off to rest.
Hope everyone else is having a better long weekend! How are you celebrating?
