Minor auto accident this morning :(

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. :(



  • Sorry to hear about your accident. Ice your leg and foot and do see a Dr. to get it recorded and an assessment by a Dr. I hope you feel better soon. Charry
    DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing c-spine c4-c7 RN
  • I am thinking that making a call to the pain clinic tomorrow to report the incident is really my only line of "defense" for lack of a better word.
