It was a wonderful start to the morning -- got into an accident on the way to work. Some woman decided to pull out of a gas station in front of me as I was driving down the road. Damage to the van appears to be minor/cosmetic but I can tell you that you low speed accident + existing back injury is already not fun. Yay. I get to deal with insurance and the police report later.
I still managed to go to work, though I was late. My manager offered to call someone else in (I am a loan officer.) but I declined. I really doubt that I would have been in less pain at home with my kids running around. I have a great deal of leg and foot pain on most days and this jarring and impact certainly increased it further.
