For the past week I have been resting up with a sore neck which is a result of a car accident.
Last weekend on my way into town I managed to crash my car, writing it off completely. I was only doing about 60km per hour but as I came around a bend in the road my car slid on the wet surface. First I slid to the right then to the left before spinning around so I was travelling backwards. I slid backwards for a bit and slammed into a tree right in the middle of my rear bumper.
I knew I was ok and not badly hurt but I also knew I had been slammed back into my drivers seat pretty hard. I called my Hubby who was still at home and he was there within about 10 minutes. We organised a tow truck, collected all my personal belongings from the car and, after meeting the tow truck, headed off to the Dr to get me checked out.
As expected I had whip lash but thankfully no broken bones. I found that I was ok while I was vertical but as soon as I tried to lie down I discovered that my neck muscles were so fatigued they could not support my head. So every night this week I have had to support my head with my hands when I lie down.
I will be going to see a physiotherapist later this week once all the muscle pain has gone and hopefully I will be back to normal in no time at all.
My car is a goner but I am ok and at the end of the day that is what matters. So hopefully I will be back to blogging all this week.
