I think that this will go down in history as the crappiest holiday ever.
A woman ran a stop sign last Saturday and tboned me going about 25mph, and I already have serious problems with my spine. I've been in excruciating pain since the accident. And not only did she run the stop sign, she exited out of the entrance lane, hit me on the drivers side and push me about 7 feet.
The accident was 100% avoidable it was a complete and total act of negligence, and then she lied to her insurance company and said it happened at a different intersection.
My husband had what was supposed to be a 45 minute surgery on 12/19, 3 hours and 37 minutes later - I saw my husband in recovery and there was a lot more to fix than originally anticipated. (He had a vasectomy in Dec of 2011 - and every complication that could happen, happened) we talked about pushing his surgery into next year, but our insurance out of pocket expenses doubled and we didn't want to start the new year, $5500 down.
Some nasty head and chest cold is ripping through the house and my kids are disappointed, we had a bunch of baking planned (I've baked for the holidays, since I could remember) all of the stress is catching up with me, but I'm not allowed to just hide in bed and be miserable, because I have three little girls that deserve to have the best Christmas I can give them. Considering I can't turn my head or pick up my 3 year old , it's really hard to do anything.
I was able to get an appointment but it's not until Christmas Eve, I just feel that everything that could go wrong is going wrong. My body is extremely sensitive to stress, so now my Crohn's disease is flaring up. My husband bless his heart, is doing everything he can to help , despite his surgery and his pain level. Nothing's wrapped, we're not going to be doing much baking and it just sucks.
I hired an attorney, at the scene of the accident, the woman was uncooperative and threatened a lawsuit even though the accident was 100% her fault. I'm not a litigious person, my I certainly have to protect my kids. My youngest is going to have to most likely go into daycare , because as it stands right now I can't even dress myself, let alone pick up and take care of her basic needs .
All of this feels so incredibly unfair, I just cannot take anymore things going wrong , I literally have spent the last two years of my life , fighting, battling and advocating for my health, I have degenerative disc disease in my cervical spine, and now my middle and lower back are completely messed up from the accident . My right arm and shoulder are numb, my legs feel like they're asleep. I just feel so incredibly helpless , almost paranoid like the universe is out to get me.
