Say a little prayer for me

I got into a car accident yesterday... horrible... i have glass shards and cuts all over my face, arms, legs...

I can't properly move my neck to the right...

I'm in pain... I'm limping... I'm gonna wake up black and blue tomorrow the paramedics said... but I'll be fine... I think

The driver of the other car was unscathed...

At least I'm alive right...

UPDATE: To the hospital... for complete checkups... they said I didn't break anything but my neck is still stiff and I can't walk upright.... my thigh is swollen beyond belief

Nobody was on the otherside... anybody who was would've died.... it was a big truck that hit us... and our car is a complete write-off.

It's so sad when people can be heartless even when others are in pain... when everything is an opportunity to exploit someone else's name... I'll take this post down in hours... I think when I get back...

I'm worse than I was when I started out yesterday... but I'm better than I could've been... what scares me more than anything is that i was going to sit on that side of the car... I swear to God I was... but then the other girl did... and we dropped her off but I was lazy to shift... if she was there... she would've died... and if I was... so would I. It was completely bashed in... and the fender hit me... it happened so fast... I was stunned for a half hour... then the scaries set in...

Thank you Jesus.

UPDATE ON THE UPDATE: I sound a little better today... look a little better... the limp is almost gone... but I have bruises on the same sides of both inner thighs so when I walk they sort of rub together... pain. My body's sore... and my neck is still stiff... and the left side of my body especially... but after washing off the glass and cleaning up the blood... it's not as bad as it looked on wednesday.

I got into a car yesterday... I sat in the left side of the backseat like I had when we got into the accident... and the entire time he was driving us... I was scared out of my mind... you know the feeling you get when you're at an amusement ride...the way your stomach drops.... I had that the entire time. Everytime we were gonna make a left and there were cars coming straight up... I saw that big red truck parking into our car again and smashing us. I didn't say anything about it cos I wanted to be strong... but at the end of the ride... my friend Ayo(who was driving the car we got into the accident in) was so relieved she almost cried... she'd had the same fear and couldn't express it.

They say it's an accident thing... it'll only be like that for a day or two...

UPDATE ON THE UPDATE THAT I UPDATED BEFORE: I'm alright... Not perfect cos I still have a couple bruises that are still healing up... and a lot of mosquito bites(the accident happened in a bushy part of the city and I was in shorts) and my neck/ body hurts a little inside... but I'm a trooper... I'm 'trooping'

Thank you Jesus... and thanks to the people who love and pray for me... I did a lot of "what if's" after the accident... but I know God has a great plan for my life... and I'm yet to accomplish that... plus he knows my gorgeous mom, sister and a whole lot of people will just bug the hell out of him with their tears... so I'm glad that HE made me NOT sit down on the right side of the car.

God is good...


THE LAST UPDATE: I'm OK

O my gosh!!! Take it easy girlie! What happened?! I'm glad you're okay though... thats the most important thing. Drink lots of water and i'm guessing Advil or Motrin will be your best friend for a few days.

Sorry luv.

Overwhelmed Naija Babe...it's been such a long time. I just came to blogger today this year and read about your accident. I feel so sad...may God heal you and grant you speedy recovery ASAP. Much love - Omoibadan

engee said...

My dear it is well ok. This is no time to think "what if". All u need to say each time u remember what happened is to say "Father thank you am alive". U need to work on the fear of being in a car. U cant leave with that forever. Not so easy...I know (believe me, i've been there)

Was goin to work at 5.30am, it was raining heavily, i was on the bridge, i couldn't see a thing, i was on speed,...the only saving grace i had was God and my seat belt.

I had to work on the fear of driving in the rain when its dark. it wasn't easy but i thank God.

U can do it too sweetie. Jst put ur mind to it and ask God to be with you. The Lord is ur strength

Tandra said...

God grants us life for a reason. God bless u and i hope u get fine soon.
