I don’t know if my concussion yesterday was slight, mild, or severe but I just like the way “slightly concussed” sounds and where else except on my blog would I get to use the term.
I went to Jiffy Lube to have one the bulbs in my car’s headlight replaced and then I left to go home. I had to make a U-turn on the main street to go in the direction I wanted, I remember getting into the left-turn lane and then darkness.
I woke up and although my eyes were closed I could hear voices and the scissors as they cut off my jilbab. Then more darkness. Later, a police officer came to hand me my paperwork from the accident. He said that the other driver said he hit me while I was making the U-turn and that pushed my car up an embankment and into a light pole.
The police brought me my bag but said they did not see my glasses or my cell phone. My mother came to pick me up and then as we drove to the place where they towed my car we passed by the scene of the accident and we saw my blue bumper on the ground next to the light pole. The towing place was closed so we’ll try again this morning in sha Allah. I mainly want my cell phone, glasses, Quran and Fiqh of Love CD set.
The doctor at the hospital wrote me three prescriptions, two for pain and one muscle relaxer. Alhamdulillah, I’m alive and nothing is broken except for my car. And I have more than 180 hours sick leave that I almost never use so I intend in sha Allah to use at least 80 of them over the next two weeks.
Any and all duas are appreciated.
