I've had painful chronic lower back problems since 6 years ago. Was sound asleep and a disc ruptured, smashing my sciatic nerve against the spinal bone. Well after almost 2 years no surgery, surgery HAD do be done it was so bad. Long story short I've got vertually everything you can have go wrong in your lower back that you can. This was all on the right side too. Well, then my right knee starts in with swelling, and a feeling of something "clicking" in and out of place ( very painful). O.K. that is a short story of my disabilities. Now comes the f***** up part (hope it is ok to do that, as I am a newbie). My Father passed about 15 years ago, it was a terrible sight. Lung cancer, stroke, coma. But then my Mom started getting loopy in her mind (age, meds, many many surgeries?) I did not do a single thing to tick her off. She just all of a sudden started hating me and not wanting to talk to me. Well, finally after about 2 years of this somehting came aroung in her head that this was wrong. Her birthday is in Nov. and her, my oldest sister & her husband live up by Kentucky Lake, I live down by Memphis. So Jackson, TN was usually a good half way point to meet.Well 2 days to the trip Mom is in the bathroom and slips and falls right over the commode. Turns out she had 3 broken ribs after my sister took her to the E.R. Of course she had to stay with Ma so this left me and my brother-in-law to meet in Jackson,TN…have lunch, give Mom her BD card, catch up on old times, etc. Well, I took a few of my pain meds hours before I left home and had a couple in their legit bottles, in case of act-up. Well, I sleep absolutely NONE the night before, finally took an Ambian around 2:30 but it must not have gotten out of my system in enough time. I was exhausted mentally, physically, vertually no sleep. So about halfway to Jackson I started getting a bit sleepy. The sun was in my eyes, had to adjust visors, weaved a bit, went to get my sunglasses, weaved a bit, if I wasn't so terribly worried about my Mom (she's had SOOOOO many surgeries, heart attacks (one actually killed her but a nurse in Wal-Mart gave her CPR and brought her back). So I was beside myself worrying over her and running on next to no sleep. So jerk behind me with a cell phone calls the cops on me,never touched no one, went of the medium, hit no one and the cops (in unmarked cars) follow me all the way into Jackson til I stop.Was not drunk, did have a few LEGITATE MEDS with me. I told him I absolutly could not do the leg lift test or the foot to toe test cause I AM DISABLED! Especially after an hour and a half sitting in my car for crying out loud. So after speding the night in the local jail (OH MY GOD!) I got bonded out the next morning.
Will see my Jackson lawyer Wed. this week with lots of backup ammo on my side (hopefully). See the judge on Dec. 1 to give him my side of the story. Folks, I know I'm new, but please send my your prayers and good thoughts. I'm fifty years old, never even gotten a traffic ticket in my life…clean slate.
Sorry this took so long, but the info needed to be put in for it to make sense.
Hope for me please,
I'll keep you guys updated if you want. Thanks!
