Summer blog Challenge day 12

Worst injury you've had & how it happened.

Well, Those of you who know me IRL know my worst injury, although I've had a lot of bad injuries, by far the worst was when I was 7 months pregnant with Tabitha. I was driving home from K-mart, it was raining and Morgen was in our friend Josh's truck. We had just made our last layaway payment on Morgen's TV that I had bought him for Christmas. I was 7 1/2 months pregnant and there was construction on 101. The car in front of me stopped suddenly but I was able to stop without hitting him. I got like 5 inches from his bumper but I didn't hit him. Then The car behind me slammed into me. Then the car behind him slammed into him. The second car actually hit and runned, the driver backed up and drove on the shoulder and got off at the exit and took off. My car wouldn't even turn back on at first. When the two cars hit me my car was thrown into the car in front of me and my little civic was crunched. The passengers side airbag went off but not the drivers side one. IT was a known defect that they didn't contact me about. But The Dr at the ER said it was actually a good thing it didn't go off. He said the force of the airbag going off could have caused me to lose Tabitha. I seemed fine at first just really sore. They did an ultrasound and Tabitha was perfect. My dr decided not to have me do physical therapy but take me off work until I went on maternity leave. After I had Tabitha I started having horrible back spasms, I had had them while pregnant but thought they were Braxton hicks contractions. The back spasms have only gotten worse over the years. My insurance has not let me do physical therapy for the accident. I've been told I would probably always have the back pain. It was a very scary accident. I was so scared I wouldn't drive on the freeway for 2 months. I still have a hard time driving on the freeway in the rain. I kind of wish I had a picture of my smashed car but I don't. Oh well.
