The Truck, the Commodore and the Fallout #53

Post 52
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.

30th May 2000

I feel like garbage. My shoulder, leg and side are really sore, even pain whilst I breathe has returned. I’ve resorted to heat packs again.

The temperatures have been terrible. It’s been raining a lot and between the damp and the cold, I have been in agony.

A couple of nights ago I was washing the dishes and before I had finished, I was doubled up with pain. I had to stop and lean on the tap and wait for the pain to subside.

Can you imagine how horrible that is?

I hate feeling like this. I just want to get on with my life. ………

I’m still having trouble sleeping. Lying down in bed is an unpleasant experience at the best of time. As for ‘other stuff’ forget it…………..
