I thought about posting this on Thursday, when it happened, but then I found the myths and facts and decided to post that instead.
First of all, I'm ok, or at least ok-ish. Second, I was in a car accident on Thursday morning. I was stopped in traffic and the person behind me didn't even slow down. She rear-ended me and pushed me into the car in front of me. The car (and driver) in front of me were ok, but my front got crunched up from that one. My trunk was completely smushed in, right up to the bottom of the back windshield. Something was messed up on the bottom of the car, too, since I heard and felt scraping on the road as I pulled over to the side. On a 12 year old car, that's definitely damage that totals it. So now we have to figure out how we'll afford another car for me. We have a decent-size down payment, at least, once the tax money comes in. Good thing we finished paying the IF-related bills, although it's disheartening to have another financial hit just after finishing with the last.
Mostly at this point, I'm just sore. My back and neck especially, but my left side and my wrists too. I don't remember if I had my hands on the wheel at that point or not, since I was stopped, but I seem to have torqued at least my right wrist. Had an x-ray of the left rib area and was glad it turned out not to be broken. Somehow, I don't think I'll be up for a BD this week.
