Accidents happen

So this morning on the way to my airport, my friend didn't see a vehicle in front of her and rear ended it pretty hard. Front of her vehicle is destroyed. She thinks I am mad at her but the truth is I am just really shaken. I had no reaction to any of it which was very odd for me. My body aches. My neck aches from being hit full force in the face with the airbag. I have a pretty good seat belt burn across my neck. I don't really want to be in a car at this point, especially the front seat. I was incredibly lucky with that seat belt saving me from going through the windshield which the Emt told me would have happened if I hadn't been wearing it. I am hoping for no flash backs of this incident. Just really glad things weren't worse than that.

Glad you are ok. Writing about it is good way to start processing what happened.


O my goodness. This is why I am selling my car and no longer drive. With my hypervigilance i am way too jumpy. I am so pleased you are okay. Sort of. Take care I feel walking is safest in places there are no strangers.
