MELLY! Are you ok!? I'd call, but I know what it is to just want to be left the hell alone.
*worries* love you, sweetie.
Ronnie. I want my mommy. That sounds so mature, doesn't it? Matt borrowed my car for the weekend (it gets better mileage) and while taking his truck to the yoga class it blew a seal and I was pulled off onto the center median (all the way off, and this will be important later) of the interstate when some guy plowed into me hard enough that he totalled both his truck and the car he hit before me and now it looks like Matt's truck is going to be a complete write-off as well (repairs more than truck worth, though Matt will probably keep the truck).
And back hurts. Along with my head and my shoulders. And I won't call for an ambulance because there are old people and pregnant women who need them, dammit. But I wish Matt were home so I could go to the hospital.
But really? I want my mommy. And a hug.
I'm ok. I'm sore as all shit but by some miracle none of the three drivers was actually hurt. I took one of Matt's Flexaril and I'm going to bed soon. But first I need to tell Matt about the complete dick who totalled his beloved truck. Matt? Out of cell range. This day? Needs to be a do-over.
The only good news is that a rental will be covered by the other guy's insurance.. which is good, because I don't have rental coverage on my policy.

The best part? Haven't talked to Matt yet. This oughta be a blast.
mellies, oh no! take care of yourself, please. *worries frantically*
I will.. I promise. I tell you what though, I'd give my left arm to be able to build a couch fort in your living room until I felt better. Tell Michael he wouldn't even notice me.. I'm very short.
Wait until I tell Matt about this. *sigh*
oh mellies! *CLING* thank heavens you weren't seriously hurt! *hugs you hard* how terrifying that must have been. can you get someone to drive you to hospital tomorrow just to check you out? when does matt get home? i'm sorry about his truck.
i love you and i'm so glad you are okay.
*erases the day and starts over!*
It's incredible that no one actually got hurt in this.. all three cars involved in the accident are going to get written off as total losses and everyone walked away. I think maybe there's a special angel for busty redheads.
I'm going to have Matt drive me to the hospital when he gets home tomorrow.. and if he can't I'm going to call our nearest friends and have them take me. Insurance will pay for an ambulance but... I'm not ambulance bad, really. The hard part is that I can't get ahold of Matt. Feh.
I'mma have me some dinner and some red wine and go be intimate with my heating pad. *humps it gently*
Mellies! Please call a doctor if you need one, OK? I am in fret mode now. What a horrible scary thing. *clings*
Berry, I wasn't even looking when it happened.. I was stopped on the side of the road making a call and all the sudden there was this horrible crash and I was pushed into the traffic late again and... and there were people coming really fast and.. and for like 20 minutes I caused a major highway to be shut down. I feel bad about that. :(
I'm going to go to the hospital tomorrow, I promise. Even if I have to take a cab and bill it back to the insurance. I think I might watch The Big Gay Boat Movie. Stripey pants makes it all better.
Oooo. Oooo. No, bad universe, don't do evil things to my Rhy.
If you need the Volvo, the keys are in the drawer.
The other guy's insurance covers a rental, I'll get that on Monday, but Matt's truck is a write-off and now we have to go through the process of getting him a new one. His dad's got one for sale and Mike P. might have one as well but if we don't get it straight before the rental expires I may take you up on the Volvo offer. Thank you. I love you. I'm a little sappy tonight. I blame the muscle relaxant. What time are you home tomorrow?
It did in fact suck a lot. If I can get the emergency room doc to prescribe the chiropractor I could get the car insurance to pay for that along with the other medical bills. That would rock. WE'll see. Because even the insurance agent was like "You're going to feel really rough tomorrow." Yeah. No joke. Sadly I think this means my bellydance class tomorrow is out of the question. I shake my Fist of Impotent Rage at the numbnut who hit me. Hmm... massages... yes.. this would be good. Thank you, I would never have thought of that. :)
S and I are glad you're ok. Also glad you're going to see a doctor tomorrow. Even if you feel ok, it's good to get checked out.
Amazing how when you're feeling sorry for yourself, it always turns out that someone else has it worse. I was whining about spoiled milk earlier. Sorry it was you who got nailed.
Well the way I'm thinking about it is that right about the point where we were staring at a $2k engine repair someone hit me hard enough that the insurance people are going to give me $3k to go get a new truck.
I'm a little fretful that I should have looked better at the form I signed.. I'm pretty sure it said that I authorized them to view my records and that I agreed that they weren't covering anything other than injuries from the accident.. I'm pretty sure it didn't say "And you don't owe me anything other than the bills, forget any settlement"... but I'm not 100% sure. *fret*
Anyway. I am sorry about your fridge.. that just sucks way hard. You got lucky on the weather but still, I'm sorry you lost all that food. :(
Melly, I don't even know what to say. Well, yes I do, but after what everyone else has already said, all that's left is that I love you an awful lot and I'm so glad you're alive and if I were there I'd give you such a hug.
I bet that you give the best hugs. And I'm imagining one now. And I would be lost without my friends. You are all so amazingly good to me. I'm still amazed that we all walked away from it.. and I know how lucky I am. I love you so very much.. I am beyond lucky to know you.
Matt was wonderful.. Bernie's got an older truck he's been trying to get rid of so I think Matt's going to take that off his hands in exchange for the settlement for the truck.. we'll see. In the mean time I went to the ER and got checked out and they gave me graham crackers to go with my Motrin. Snacks! :)
Ack, sweetie! That's terrible! I'm so glad you're ok, though.
I am but it's brought home to me how much stuff like the gym and dancing matters because they are at the same time the things that I'm going to miss the most over the next couple of days and the things that will make it just a couple of days instead of weeks. Because if I hadn't been in the shape I'm in I could have been really seriously hurt and looking at a long recovery. I might kiss my gym pass later. ;)
Being able to say "He pushed the bed of the truck into the cab by two inches." makes people stop and stare at me though.. it's nice that if I had to go through this, at least it was a full-on, no-holds-barred crunch-fest.
Do you need someone to come up and stay with you? Cause I'll get in the car and come up there. I'm not that far really. Feh. I'm going to call you if I can find my phone.
*hugses* It was bad enough, and I'm most thankful it wasn't worse. Take care of yourself and...*points up* What everyone else has said too.
I'm being good to me, honest. :) And I told Matt that I'm under doctor's orders to have a gentle massage... which means he's now ORDERED to rub my back. \o/
Oh, MELLY! *hugs you gently* It's late now, so I'm not going to call but tomorrow? You call me if you need me, alright? I'm close, I have a car and any plans that I have can easily be moved. You are way more important than a trip to the movies. I love you and I'm glad you're okay!! <333
Sweetpea I absolutely adore you. You're so sweet to fret so. I'm fine and the ER doc says it's just soreness and stiffness. Matt's truck is totalled, there's too much frame damage to it, so we're going to have to worry about that.. but in the mean time I'm going to take my lovely pain meds and go curl up on the couch. :D
Love my Lala.
