Yesterday morning around 9:20am, while crossing the street in a crosswalk, and having the right-away, I was struck by a vehicle making a wide left hand turn. My body was flung. The handbag I was carrying, along with the sunglasses I was wearing were flung much farther. I have no idea how fast the car was going, but it didn't seem to slow down. I was taken by ambulance to the emergency room, given blood work, x-rays and CT scans. I am so incredibly thankful to be alive. I remember while being flung the feeling of floating: I looked up to the sky, and thought that I was dying, or perhaps already dead.

I have no broken bones, and am at home resting. I alternate between feeling like this was all a terrible nightmare, and breaking down emotionally. I am afraid to be left alone. I'm afraid to sleep, for fear of not waking up. I was so cautious crossing the street, as I always am. I wasn't on my phone, and I looked before stepping into the crosswalk.

I will be taking time from posting to rest.


  1. OMG! So sorry to hear, Amber. Rest and recover. Let your body heal and then let others help you come to grip with the psychological effects. If I can help, e-mail me.

  2. OH :( I'm so sorry you had to go through that! :/ Saw on your newest post something about an accident and came looking for it. I'm always so scared that something like that can happen to me, that's why I hate driving, I'm just to afraid that I will hit somebody or that I'll be in an accident. I hope things are better now and that you're feeling your old self again! :) xoxo
