    Interesting couple of weeks for me.

    Got hit by someone running a red light at high speed. I've been panicky and fuzzy brained since. The very good news is my blood sugar numbers are not reflecting the pain I'm in very much, they are staying in the mid 100 range or even the low 100 range.

    This is the first time I've felt able to come and read anything and have it make sense.

    The cars crumple zone did its job, the air bag did its job. I'm waiting on an MRI of my left shoulder (thus the pain) and one of my neck. Otherwise, I seem to be fine except for the fuzzy brain and panic issues.

    Hello, confused. Sorry to read of your accident. I hope you can recover soon. Was your car totaled?

    What a horrible experience! So glad you are OK and sugars are stable.

    What kind of car do you drive? Sounds like a safe one! I used to care about what color my car was and if it had a sunroof - now I only care about safety (and gas mileage - but mostly safety)

    Hope your shoulder/neck doesn't have any damage and that you are pain free soon.

    Did the other driver get arrested?

    confused replied to Haylen_WebMD_Staff's response:
    To Davedsel57: Yes, the insurance company said my car was totaled.

    To Haylen: It was a Honda Odyssey Minivan. We have it because it's a nice ride and the second row of seats come out for hauling things.

    The other driver didn't get arrested, but she got a ticket and was found by the police to be at fault.

    I'll be seeing a neurologist in the near future and the MRI is next Monday.

    And wow, I was able to comprehend what you wrote past the 2nd sentence!! Yay!!
