Car Crash

Just keeping people up to date. Last Tuesday, I dropped my car off at the garage to get fixed. My parents were taking me home. My mom wrongly turned in front of oncoming traffic. We got hit. Oncoming car hit my door. I then slammed into the back of the passenger seat my dad was in. The airbags deployed. I got a disjointed finger and serious bruising in the shape of the seatbelt. Dad may have gotten a cracked rib. Ma was mostly rattled. The ER doc said, “I could fix that finger in 2.5 seconds.” I knew that would hurt and OMG it so did, but it is back in place, although a little swollen. Various parts of me are swollen right now.

But we all walked away from the accident. If Dad hadn’t been wearing his seatbelt, he would be dead. I am sure of it.

Right now I am focused on healing. I worked on Friday. My favorite manager forbade me from answering the call of “donation backup.” She was right to do so. Heavy lifting is beyond my capabilities now and I woke up Saturday super-sore anyhow.

I am taking lots of extra vitamins. I am focused on healing. Life seems to be about human error. I am not a happy camper.

I live in Michigan. I was Greek Orthodox (and previously Protestant), but now am more Buddhist than anything. I am single now (through the till-death-do-you-part clause of the marriage contract). My husband Barry was a good man and celebrated 30 years in AA. I am overly educated, with an MBA. My life felt terminally in-limbo while caring for a sick husband, but I am free now. I see all things as being in transition. Impermanence is the ultimate fact of life. Nothing remains the same, good or bad.
