Two Years Ago Today

Two years ago today, at about this time in the morning actually, I was on my way to work, when someone ran a red light and hit my car. My car then spun, and hit a light post. I can probably say for sure, it was the most unpleasant day of my life.

My car was a write-off, and I spent the next 2 years in rehab for my injuries, dealing with the legal BS between insurance companies (hence why I got a lawyer), and not freaking out when driving when someone would approach and intersection too fast from the right side. I had alot of pain through my back, shoulders, neck. It made skating difficult at times. There was alot of frustration when I wasn’t able to do something because it hurt, all because someone wasn’t paying attention. All I was doing was driving through a green light, on my way to work.

Fortunately, there was no question of fault, and I did get really good care through my lawyer, and as of yesterday, we are finally going to look at settling the claim. It will be nice to finally move on and close this chapter before starting on a new one in September with school. I can’t say I’m completely injury free – I still get flare ups – but it’s not an “every day in pain” thing anymore.


So, let’s get back to the food, okay?

Last night was a late one. I think I got home around 11:30 or so. Dinner was good – I had plantain chips and coconut shrimp. The dipping sauce for the shrimp was an avocado mint yogurt sauce that was pretty much amazing. And plantain chips just brought me back to Ecuador – I knew I had to have them when I saw them on the menu. There was also a homemade birthday cake with some boiled icing on it. That stuff is marshmallowy goodness! It was a pretty good evening, but I’m so tired today!

Hence, breakfast was cereal.

    It’s great that the claim is finally being settled and you’re able to move forward.

    I’m SO glad the meeting with your lawyer turns out well!!! There are lots of incentive for the driver to settle. Certainly avoids TONS of legal costs. Plus if he/she loses then they may also be responsible for your legal costs.

    Point is – it works out well for you! 🙂
