Thursday was eventful to say the least. It started off great. The week was almost over I was excited to go running in the evening. All good things. Then on the drive to the park, I rear ended someone. I rear ended them bad. To be honest I don’t remember much of the accident but I do remember suddenly realizing my airbags were deployed and my engine was smoking, and that I needed to turn off my car and get out.
I’m fine, the other person is fine. My car is not. I haven’t been officially told, but my car is probably totaled, meaning this weekend was full of car shopping.
I was a wreck for the rest of the evening and could not stop crying. Have you ever cried so much you literally dehydrate yourself and use up all your tears and then you start dry crying. Yeah that happened.
Thursday night I was talking to my boyfriend and he pointed out. “Isn’t it great that you have a ton of healthy ways at your disposal to deal with something like this?” He’s right.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to talk about this here but I think it’s important to stay positive about life when things like this happen.
1. I am alive and unhurt, and so is the other driver. This is the most important. I have no bruises or cuts and I am alive. My car can be replaced, I cannot.
2. I have so many people that love and support me. I was picked up by a family friend, and my boyfriend came rushing to my house as soon as he heard. My parents drove an hour and a half to come to my house for probably 30 minutes just to make sure that I was okay.
Overall, it could have be so much worse. I’m still stressed out about the whole thing, my eye hasn’t stopped twitching since Thursday! I already have a fear of driving that this just made a lot worse so I’m nervous about having to drive for longer than the ten minutes at a time I’ve been doing daily since Friday.
I haven’t been running since, and to be honest, because that’s where I was headed I’m nervous about driving back to the park to go running. Still I know that it’ll probably be the best thing for my nerves and I’m hoping to squeeze in a short run this afternoon around my neighborhood.
Hoping to have happier updates for next time!
