Bruised but not broken....we leave in 9 days

Recommended Posts

Need to vent....not angry but sad.....and feeling sorry for myself.....

 

On Jan. 13th I was driving on icy roads and took on a gravel truck with my van....I lost - big time!!! - when all was said and done, the motor was under my feet, the bumber 8 inches behind the frame and I was taken by ambulance to the hospital, treated and released. No broken bones, some mild bruising, loose teeth from the airbag hitting under my chin. (the teeth have since tightened up and the dentist said there are no cracked teeth and my jaw isn't broken). Most pain is in the chest, back & arms.

I was an EMS provider for 10 years and have seen far worse injuries from way less vehicle damage & impact. I have the prespective that I am SO fortunate to be in one piece, but am feeling sorry for myself as I'm nauseated from the pain medications, still don't quite have the pain in control, not sleeping at through the night (from injuries) in physiotherapy, massage, chiroprator almost daily and the wedding is approaching very quickly. Now I have a horrific head cold to add to the fun.

I have wonderful support, have the best care providers, but am feeling overwhelmed, disappointed and selfish for feeling sorry for myself..........

I'm hoping babbling will shake me out of this funk....thanks for listening..

I am feeling your pain.

I was just released from hospital and I leave for my wedding in 6 days.

It has just put things into perspective for me. Some things just aren't important...I am so sorry for your pain, as I am also in a lot.

Go ahead and feel sorry for yourself. It has been a lot of planning, but I am sure everything will be okay.

Best wishes!!!

So sorry to hear that. I am very glad that you are (mostly) okay. I hope that this does not impact your wedding in any way. On the up side, you have one more thing to celebrate at the wedding - your life. All the best for a speedy recovery and fabulous wedding.

I'm so glad to hear that you're okay! It sounds like it could have been so much worse. I'm so sorry you're in so much pain now, especially with the wedding so soon. The stress must be intense, I hope you have enough time to relax and heal. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Oh wow! THank God you're ok! I know it seems horrible, but it could be sooo much worse! I feel for you sad.gif.

I have to say ErikaJ is my hero. That poor girl had to have surgery done very close to her wedding, but her spirits were so high and I think that REALLY hepled her recovery process.

 

I know it sucks, but stay positive! And we're here to listen whenever you need us :)

What a blessing you don't have more serious injuries! Focus on the positive and do what the doctors tell you to do. Make sure you tell them what pain meds are making you nauseous. They can adjust your prescription or provide something else that won't make you feel worse than you already do.

 

Take care.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
