Did you know that some doctors that you have on your medical team will refuse to see you if you need to be seen for complications from a motor vehicle accident. (known as mva). It is amazing the things you learn after being in an accident. My neurologist that treats my migraines and is aware of my stroke and brain bleed won't see me for this headache escalation caused by the mva. My physical therapist who has treated me before for my neck and shoulders will charge 100.00 a visit to treat me now for the muscle stiffness caused by the accident. Strange. Doctors used to care about their patients. Ah well. Got to find a new physical therapist and Neurologist. One would think that when something like this happens that a doctor who knows your medical history would be better for you than seeing someone who has no clue who you are. But hey - what do I know!
Other things I have learned. The businesses in my small town only turn their cameras on when they are closed for the day. The bank doesn't even have cameras pointed towards the main road. There are no cameras on the traffic lights. Oh and at 9:45 in the morning on the main street in town everyone's too busy to stop to help or to give the police a statement - not even the other driver. (rolls eyes)
Before last week my pain management team had my pain pretty much at the lowest level it has been in years. The week before the accident I had an epidural done. Although it was helping the accident took care of that. Now it feels like I am starting from the beginning once more.
Still waiting to hear from my insurance but am.sure my car is totalled. Sure wish the guy would have hit me the week before since on the 12th I had spent 500.00 for a new radiator and two days later I was hit. Murphy's Law was alive and well that week. Lol
Since the accident I have had a borderline migraine. My eyes keep going out of focus. My body is shaky. My neck/shoulder pain is pretty bad, my lower back hurts and the foggy headedness is back. Its hard to concentrate, it's hard to get the right words out, my fingertips keep going numb and my back keeps spasming. But everyone keeps telling me they are glad I am ok. Huh? Oh that's right - I have Chronic Pain so my routine answer is I'm fine or I'm still breathing. Lol.
How do you answer when people ask how you are doing? After all these years I still haven't figured that one out.
So what I did do - for me - was find this group. Many years ago I managed my own group online. Then my fiance took a turn for the worse so I took over managing his group too. When he lost his fight I crashed. For months on end I had been running on adrenalin. Eventually I had to let both of our groups go. Its been a long time since I was a part of a group so... Did you know that even in the darkest times you can still find blessings? Y'all are my blessing.
Have a beautiful day.
