So last night I was in a car accident. Today I’m sore as hell, tired and trying not to over-react.
I don’t know if the accident was my fault, but I thought I was clear to make the turn, but I got hit nearly head on by the other car, so now I’m not so sure.
The airbag deployed in my face, hit the side of my face, and messed up my jaw. I went and saw the doctor today and he described it as the equivalent to getting punched in the face. I’ve been ‘prescribed’ Advil icing it, and soft foods. My chest hurts were my seat belt caught me, and other than a few bruises, I’m fine.
The other driver was also fine, as far as I could tell, he said he was okay too. Was super nice.
My boyfriend, thank god, was also fine, other than his seat belt bruise. There’s not airbags on that side of my car, so his belt took the whole brunt of it. Considering how my I hurt, I feel terrible knowing how much his chest must hurt.
I don’t know if my car is fixable or not, waiting for the insurance company to get back to me on that stuff.
And despite everything, I’m worried as all hell. I’ve only been dating this guy a month, but he’s amazing and incredible and everything I look for in a man, and I really, really hope the accident last night will scare him off. I worry that he’ll suddenly realize that he could do better than the girl who nearly killed him in a car accident and then proceeded to freak the fuck out.
He was so sweet though. Made sure I got home safe after, if it wasn’t for him I’d probably have wandered in Vancouver, totally lost, the police didn’t make sure we had a way home or anything, leaving us to skytrain all the way home. (not that the police did a bad job, they were super nice and helpful, and helped calm me down.) I live in a small city quite a ways from Vancouver, and he escorted me all the way to the skytrain station where my mom came and picked me up, even though he had to then turn around and go back the way we came.
God, I hurt all over.
