(no idea what to call this one)
So, I had originally planned to write this post yesterday and to talk about how strange it was to be re-starting Lupron for cycle #3.5…but that was before I spent yesterday getting into (and then recovering from) a CAR ACCIDENT…!
To try and make a long story short, here are the highlights:
I was on my way to a noon-time work presentation (the first one that I had run by myself) and had just picked up sandwiches. I was following directions from my GPS (had never been in this town before), entered a rotary, and halfway through, SLAMMED into a van! Apparently halfway through there was a stop sign giving the other half of the rotary right of way, and I literally DID NOT see it. THANK GOD no one was hurt, except for the two cars, both of which were un-driveable.
My colleague (and former boss, who was joining me for the presentation) picked me and the sandwiches up off the side of the road and we actually went and DID the presentation! I had planned to give him the stuff and then have S pick me up and spend the rest of the day crying in my bed, but my colleague just assumed that I’d still be going, so I decided I had to suck it up and go.
After the preso, S picked me up, brought me to the tow lot and helped me empty my car of the millions of boxes of books (which he thinks is the reason why I didn’t get hurt – that the weight of the books actually held the car down). He brought me back to his shop (because I didn’t want to be alone) and I spent the afternoon making phone calls.
So now, I’m in a rental car for the foreseeable future, and just feeling SO guilty and embarassed about the whole thing. Luckily, it was the company car, so we don’t have to pay for repairs, but I still just can’t believe that it happened.
Oh and yes, I did my first Lupron injection this morning. Crazy.
