The Truck, the Commodore and the Fallout #25 & #26

Post 24

On the 15th May 1998 I was involved in car V truck accident, that saw a commodore shortened by 3 foot either end. The following entries are from a diary I kept at the time.

It’s now 13 years later and the pain is still here – the TAC of course have wiped their hands of me. I learnt a long time ago that the only person you can rely on is you and it’s something that has stood me in good stead for longer than I can remember.

5th February 1999

If I am working I can afford childcare………… If I’m not working I can’t afford childcare, yet I can’t look after the kids at home.

So will someone please offer a solution? …………………

Did I mention that on Sunday I vacuumed the dining room floor (all 10x10 foot) of it and my right arm was in agony on Monday.


11th February 1999

For the first time that I can remember in a long time, I woke up yesterday without THE pain. I only realised when I went to turn the hot water tap on for my shower that my arm didn’t hurt.

I felt like a brand new person.

Unfortunately things did not stay that way, but perhaps there is light at the end of the tunnel.

…………. As stated previously I took yesterday off from work and spent the day in quiet activity.

The boss’s wife begged for me to come in after I’d seen the doctor, but I refused, because I knew what the day held in store.

What am I supposed to do?
