It was a good, lower body resistance-band workout and I've been pretty excited about the past week in general. As tough as the classes are, the coaches, and even my fellow classmates, are very supportive and make it fun. I had a lot of errands planned for after class, in preparation for my best friend coming to visit me next weekend, but you know what they say about the best laid plans...
Right after class, I got into my car that was parked right in front of the entrance to Farrells, started it up to get the A/C going to cool off, opened my protein shake and just as I was drinking it... WHAM!!! A car side-swiped the entire left side of my new car. My car was PARKED and it wasn't even three months old!!! I can't even begin to tell you how angry I was. Nearly 30 years without an accident and this happened. The woman finally moved her car in front of mine and I got out saying, "Are you #@@%!%$@ kidding me?!?!?!?" I was so shaken up, a guy from Farrells actually called the police from my cell phone because my hands were shaking too much to touch the right areas of my screen.
When the police finally came, I told him what happened and then he spent nearly 30 minutes talking with the other driver- even putting her in the back seat of his police car. As they were talking, the woman's friend drove up and handed a wallet to her, right in front of the policeman. (Was she driving without a license?) When the policeman asked the guy when was her last drink, the guy said around 4 a.m. I was so annoyed at the whole situation, I kept pacing back and forth while they were in the policeman's cruiser. The policeman finally came out and handed me a paper with all the key information (name, DOB, address, insurance, case #... etc.), and said to me that charges will likely be filed. He also said she seemed under the influence of SOMETHING. Just my luck. I knew I should've tried to go to the earlier 6 a.m. class.
On top of my car's damage being worse than I thought, at the time of the accident, I thought I wasn't hurt but later that afternoon, my left shoulder started bothering me. I took some naproxen and took it easy but even this morning, my shoulder was bothering me and the naproxen didn't even help. I called my primary, hoping to leave a message asking to see her tomorrow afternoon, and found out she was working the Urgent Care Clinic this morning. I immediately went over and after examining me, she gave me anti-inflamatories and pain killers for my rotator cuff and then told me I couldn't work out my upper body for the rest of the week. I was so bummed!!! At least while I was there, I took the opportunity to ask her for a prescription for the Pristiq samples she gave me for my misophonia when I saw her a couple of weeks ago for my annual physical.
[Sigh...] As much as the whole situation is frustrating, I'm very thankful that I didn't hang out after class like I usually do. If I went to my car a few minutes later than I did, she would've squished ME, instead of just messing up my car. I am still annoyed that I can't continue with my workout this week. At least dealing with my car/shoulder issues might help direct my focus away from misophonia triggers. (One can hope...)
