View Full Version : Crashed my car

11-23-2010, 02:00 PM
I have been having a bad couple of weeks, with feeling sick and life in general. I've been having random weird sharp pains lately in my back and sides. I've also been really tired and crabby. Me and my boyfriend of over a year just broke up last week. I have strep. And wrecked my car this morning on the way to school. Im just feeling really down right now and needed to talk about it somewhere.

hi ritzbit,

oh, you ARE having a tough time...feeling sick, really tired and crabby, and sharp pains in your back and sides,,,,sounds like a pretty rough flare that you are experiencing. So sorry about your car, i hope you are ok, and i hope the damage to your car is minimal. You have been here before, and you know that it is no fun, but you also know that you can and will get past this. so glad that you came here to talk....this is the place where we can get support.

when it rains, it pours, huh? I am so glad to see you are ok. Cars are alot easier to replace than people. Were you hurt? Was anyone else hurt? I'm sorry to hear that things are rough right now, but I am glad you are here talking it out with us. Was the car totalled? There seem to be a lot of us with car accidents happening lately. I had one about 2 months ago when a deer jumped in front of mine. but like I said, cars can be replaced. (((HUGS)))

You are more important than a car, hope you were not hurt. I just took my car to the shop this morning; a deer hit me the other night on my way home from work.

Flares are bad, but we get through them. Don't let the bad times get you down. Think happy thoughts and find a happy place. It helps

gentle hugs,

I hurt my back in the crash. Right after having bad back spasms all day yesterday, so thats not really feeling the best right now even with medicine. Other than that Im thankfully fine. I was on a winding hill and there was a huge ditch on the side I was driving, but when I spun out my car flew to the other side of the road, and lucky didnt hit anything but a fence. The back of my car is pretty banged up. My entire back bumper is gone. I just hope things get better. I feel like poo.

Sorry things are going so rough for you right now but glad you are ok after the car wreck! The good news is that when things get this bad there is only one way to go and that is up!

Oh sweetie,
This has been a bad time for you! I'm just glad that you weren't badly injured. You should have your back checked out. My daughter walked away from a roll-over accident, and didn't know until the next day that she had a cracked vertebra. Better safe than sorry! Get it checked.
Are you on break from school? Try to have a restful long weekend, and feel better soon.

Thankfully yes. No school until Monday. I plan on sleeping a lot lol becuz I've been so tired. I'm hoping everything goes well over the break.

oh back pain is such a pain. I'm glad to hear that you walked away with so little damage and I agree with Marla, better get checked out just to be safe. I was rear-ended 8 years ago and still see a chiropractor routinely because of that accident. Back pain is not something to ignore.

*HUG* Oh ritzbit, I am relieved to hear there was no serious damage or anyone getting badly hurt. I agree that you should see a doctor just to make sure, because sometimes the pain doesn't show up until a little while later. I fell off my horse in 2007 and I "seemed" to be fine, but I was in shock and infact badly hurt and had to go to the hospital, so just make double sure!

hi ritzbit,

oh, so sorry to hear about your back. i am glad that you will have a few days to rest it, but like marla said, do not hesitate getting it checked if you continue to suffer with it. hopefully time will take care of it.

i hope you have a nice day tomorrow, sending you lots of gentle hugs.

Its feeling better today thank goodness =) My left shoulder is the worst of it now. I'll get it looked at if its not better by Friday. I'm just happy to be ok for Thanksgiving this year!

11-24-2010, 04:18 PM
that is such good news. i am glad that you are better and looking forward to thanksgiving tomorrow. are you traveling, or hosting dinner at your house?

whatever your plans, have some fun and enjoy some really good food.

I go to my grandmas with my dad for lunch and then switch over to dinner with moms family =) It was at my aunts new house this year and her power went out from the storms we had and everyone was freaking out lol but luckily the power came back on before we went over! It was a good day. We got our first little bit of snow that night =( I dont like this cold weather lol

Im kind of really stressed about my car because I actually need it starting this week. I've been waiting 2 months for this tutoring program Im involved in to start. And of course it starts this week, and I have no way of getting there. And I just got a tutoring job a few weeks ago that starts the week after next. So I need to jump on the ball and figure out what Im going to do before all this starts. I have about $300 to my name and Im hoping that will be enough to fix what absolutely needs to be fixed for my car to be drivable. Wish me luck!

I hope that everything works out with your car and that it is not too expensive. Things sound a bit stressful for you right now, please try not to get overly stressed so as not to set off a flare up.
Best of luck with your tutoring job, is there any public transportation that can get you there until your car is fixed? Keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out in your favor :-)

Peace and Blessings
