Pain in the Neck

What the heck!Car accident

So earlier this week I was just getting on the I-10 freeway heading to my cardiology appointment at Mayo Clinic.  It was just before sunrise and I noticed as I got on the freeway that traffic was slowing in the lane I was in. I reduced speed and got on the brakes. The next thing I know, “WHAM!”. I was hit from behind by a truck, who was hit from behind by a Dodge Durango.

All three of us pulled off to the side of the freeway. Even as we are off to the side of the road trying to call DPS the cars on the freeway were still moving pretty fast next to the accident scene. I am shocked that this didn’t cause folks to slow down. But everyone seemed to be in a hurry to get to work I suppose. The DPS officer got all of our information and about an hour later we were free to go. I noticed right away that my neck was stiff and lower back was bothering me.

I then returned to the 101 Loop freeway to head to North Phoenix for my appointment.  But, I was really freaked out and got off the freeway to drive back home. I wouldn’t have made my appointment anyway due to traffic. I have never been afraid to drive before. But that day I was terrified. Can anyone relate to my fear of this?

Now I have to deal with the stress of insurance claims and medical visits. I have a case of whiplash according to the doctor and chiropractor. I am so glad I have my wife to help me to sort out some of the mess this has created. I am grateful that our Mazda 3 only had some rear bumper damage. The car is still driveable. Now I pray that the LORD will continue to give us favor through this process.

    That sucks (can followers of Christ say suck?). So glad that Tanisha is there to hep you out. My last accident (hit from behind by drunk driver) left me afraid to drive far by myself also. I pray all this works out and that the pain is manageable. You truly didn’t need this. All my love to you and Tanisha.

    Oh brother. Take care of yourself my friend. Otherwise, are you well?

      Hi Jeff. Yes I’m ok. I started seeing a chiropractor this week. What a headache.

    I have not recently been following your conversations, but I have been praying for you each and every day. My prayer this morning is that God continue to give you the strength, faith, and hope that you need to continue forward and that He bless you and Tanisha with growing Grace and Favor. Love to you both.
