Just what I needed. On my way in to work this morning, I was rear-ended by a distracted plumber in a white panel van. I soooo didn’t need this. Once again, my car fared pretty well – no visible serious damage – but my body is not faring as well. I was at a near stop in traffic, with my foot on the brake, and the guy behind me, probably still doing around 15 mph was leaning across his van rolling down his passenger window and not looking in front of him. BAM! I screamed, startled, and stuff on my dash ended up on my seat. I was so shaken up that I couldn’t hold the pen to write down information.
I’ve been to the chiropractor already and have been instructed not to drive today, but to ice up and rest. I go to physical therapy tonight anyway, so she’ll evalutate me and see where we’re at. And I’m scheduled for a massage tomorrow to keep my back muscles loose. They are already seizing up.
Things will get worse before they get better. At least I can work from home, but I surely won’t be doing any sewing, or even any knitting. Maybe I’ll be able to knit, but we’ll have to see.
Argh. What is it with my daughter and me with car accidents? This makes, between us both, about four – possibly five – in the last 15 months.
