Post Accident Pain In The Neck

So I'm officially a week out from being hit by a car, and I'm honestly surprised at how sore I still am.

I had expected to bounce back. There was no blood, I could walk afterwards, I was sore and pretty freaked out, but I thought in a few days I would be fine.

I was wrong.

It's crazy what being hit by a car does to your system. My knees ache. My hips and lower back throb. And I have these awful headaches that gnaw at my skull like little rodent teeth. That whiplash stuff is no joke!

Every time I move, my body creaks and pops like a bowl of Rice Crispies and it's jacking with my sleep.

Nifty, huh?

I recovered from 2 C-sections with nothing stronger than Tylenol and was up walking within hours of both. I had fully expected to take this in stride the same way.

I haven't.

I'm still hobbling around on crutches and looking forward to each dose of pain killer like crazy.

I definitely still feel lucky, it could have been much worse. There was no head injury and the driver didn't hit my kids, that is a pretty wonderful miracle in and of itself.

I am just ready to be back in the swing of things again. It sucks not being able to lift my kids and being stuck in one place. And I'm really ready to get rid of the headaches...

Luckily, I have some pretty cute company while I am recuperating :-)
