    Proceed with caution I say!
    I feel uneasy all of that day.
    Nothing particular just a way
    that you feel, don't know if
    you're dreaming or if it's for
    real! I drive with caution 100
    per cent of the time, car crash
    fatalties statistics at the top
    of my mind...And then from
    nowhere I hear my Mother's
    voice say..."Be careful baby
    you know it's fools out there
    today!" To deliver a Christmas
    gift something that I just had
    to do...Who knew when and
    how I would run into you ?
    Around the corner where you
    shouldn't have been....
    You eighteen wheeler in a
    downward spin...straight
    towards me and I had no
    where to go...Defensive
    driving 101, I'm coming
    up with zero, cars to the
    right of me ...oh God let
    him go to the right. I throw
    the car in reverse...I hear
    someone scream a curse
    blackness and then I am
    seeing upside down and
    then around again, am I
    dreaming my wheels come
    down in a dead spin. I snatch
    the keys from the ignition
    before I black out...
    A drunk driver...*** hole!
    Ya know what I'm talking
    about...It's Christmas he
    said, wanted to stop by
    and see the wife and the
    kids...didn't know he would
    not be able to avoid the
    skids..."She came out of
    nowhere!" "**** you
    is my silent scream...you
    weren't supposed to be
    there. I hear a voice from
    somewhere calling out
    numbers and my name...
    and then a stick...is this
    all in my mind? I hear a
    siren from somewhere
    I think it's so awfully
    close..."Oh my God!"
    I hear myself say...
    and then the pain!!!
    Wonderful thing the brain
    in times of terrible trauma
    it doesn't immediately
    register pain...
    Until you come out of sweet
    sublime mind numbing shock!!!
    Morphine is a CROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My pain was on dead lock...
    Internal injuries, concussion
    mutiple contusions , abrasions
    and not one broken bone....
    "INSANE"!! Says my indisputable
    brain....A loud explicative I cannot
    refrain...my chest I keep telling
    them my chest..."Oh bruised Ribs!"
    Thank God for extra padding, thick
    clothes and God's mercy....and
    13 blood clots and two months
    later...Can't say I was feeling
    greater...But my insides were
    shaking for months...
    I would have nightmares and
    cold sweats, and hot chills
    and mind numbing imaginary
    spills...Terrified of riding in
    a car for another month...
    SURVIVOR....
    December 24,1981
    Thought I was done...
    **** near the same thing
    happend again in 1991
    And I'm thanking him for
    keeping me in his care...
    for the next time somebody
    somewhere says...
    "She came out of nowhere!"

    Goodness LB! I've never been in an accident...just fender benders (knock on wood) two to be exact so I totally felt this type of scare for the first time. You are blessed.

    Lived to tell the Story!

    Yeah, truly blessed and I appreciate having a place to work this out, cause I never talked about how horrific it actually was for me and then to have an equally bad one hit from behind by a drunk Driver in 1991...So yes...I would say I have been blessed...
    Blessings On Ya House!

    God's grace

    You took us on a ride with this!
    Very vivid and detailed. Almost
    wanted to jump out the car before impact.
    God is definately watching over you!

    Thank you and all Praises to God!

    Yes I thank him everyday! I still have back problems and am having surgery on March 17th so pray for me again as I face the
    knife again...You never know when you are 21 that some 20 years later you will be still paying the price of someones careless actions. It may not happen to you but who knows when someone may injur a loved one of yours ...Thank you for taking this ride with me it was liberating.

    Blessings On Ya Houses!

    We all thank God that you pulled through
    and are here to testify
    I have been in far to many crashes myself not to understand, so know that I do feel your pain
    The one thing I learned in my most severe crash is that God sends his angels in all shapes and colors and I thank God for the white ones he sent to me when I had my worst crash they were truly life savers.

    You know it's true!

    God defenitely sent angels to me, I don't know who called the ambulance, but I do remember someone holding my hand until they got there...God Bless them wherever they are! And bless you for sharing that with me.

    Blessings On Ya House!:D :D
