Thursday Threesome: Full of Suck

On the Thursday Threesome, I’ll choose a theme and describe three things that have to do with that theme. This is a grumpy post, full of grump. Because really, that just about sums up my mood right now. With a great big HARRUMPH. Today I present you with three things that suck when you get rear ended by an older twit.

  1. Fighting the insurance company: I will say that I generally really love Progressive, my insurance. They’re great at getting the car fixed. The person, however…not so much. I called them to check about getting her insurance to pay for me to go to the doctor, but they were all focused on the car. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve said, “I don’t care about the car, what about my neck??” But at least her insurance company appraised my bumper higher, so there may be good from that.
  2. Going to the ER: Initially, I was quite pleased with UMass Memorial. Aside from the pay parking, which was just weird. (Hi, my arm is gushing blood, but I’ll stop and get your little parking ticket. And try not to lose it as a fade in and out of consciousness.) Okay, I wasn’t gushing blood or anything, but I did go wicked fast through the vital stats and registration. Then I waited to get into my room. Then I waited for the doctor. Then I waited over an hour to go to x-ray and get some motrin.
  3. The whiplash: Yep…I have whiplash. And the nurse was nice enough to break this news to me by saying, “You’re going to feel soooo much worse tomorrow.” What a ray of sunshine! I had to leave work early yesterday since I was getting dizzy, but I made it through today okay. The big thing that’s killing me is the super drugs they gave me. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and I’m having a couple stressful days. BUT, my anxiety meds react quite violently with things like muscle relaxers and such. Though I don’t suppose putting me to sleep for the weekend would be really violent, though. Anyway. Tonight I had to choose the anxiety meds over the pain meds. Hopefully I made the right choice!

    Thanks! I’m starting to feel a bit better in the neck, though that’s still kinda hit or miss. :P
