My first car wreck.

    aaand, I live. Totaled my t100. I was about to call my wife, and BAM, this 21 year old kid ran a light and broke my ass off. I feel alright aside from a throbbing knee and a fat lip and a waffle-pattern blood-blister across my chest from the seat-belt in conjunction with a thermal shirt. I promised my wife I'd have the knee x-rayed tomorrow. Anyways, the point:

    I need phone numbers from my closest bff's. As I said before, I was about to call my wife, and the phone must have literally exploded against my face or something. You guys know who you are, gimme the digits, mommacitas.
     
  2. That sucks Gemma, hope its nothing serious with your knee. =/

    I'm glad you came out if it ok for the most part, It would suck to loose a person like you from our UO community. Dont just stop at the knee get everything checked out that you can while its on the guy's insurances dime. some injuries you wont feel for 2-3 days after when the pain from others subsides.

    1- Dont sign anything the insurance co. may give you.

    2- Dont take any settlement Unless it covers Med bills, New car, Car rental at least.

    3- make sure you get everything checked out by doctors prior to accepting money.

    4- call a lawyer, A: The insurance company will try to screw you. B: It will be on the Insurance co. dime. C: will help ensure that you get the financial help you need, Be it new car, Lost wages med bills exc.exc.

    .....

    5. Keep a diary of how you are doing/ feeling (either daily or at your discretion). If this ends up in court somehow, you will at least have something documented as to how your recovery is going. And never, ever use positives in writing... put down things like "Not as bad as yesterday". Avoid things like, "Feeling better than yesterday."

    As it was pointed out, some injuries can take a little while before they manifest themselves so it is possible that you will feel OK for a few days, then feel like crap after that.

    A speedy recovery to you

    6. And take pictures of everything! From every angle. Then make back-ups of your back-ups. Mom's lawyer lost her pictures from her accident and 2005. The fact that we had them back-up on disk made the difference in her property damage...!

    Best of luck to ya.

    ps: Ask the doctor for diazipam (sp) trust me!

    Diazepam (Valium). Why would they prescribe an anti-anxiety med for pain? ;)

    Why would he want Diazepam when he can get vicodin? After my motercycle wreck the Dr. hooked me up with vicodin 10's for nearly 5 months.

    Valium is only good for like, stress things. Dentists often prescribe it for stressed patients who are super afraid of their procedures. My friend is always prescribed it before coming in or else she has panic attacks.

    Vicodin makes me really sick. When I broke my leg and when I came down with really bad hives from a bad allergic reaction (I guess it was for the swelling and itching? I didn't get it either...) and what not, the doctors prescribed vicodin and I spent hours at the toilet puking.

    Perkaset (sp) works well. But that **** is highly addictive.

    Protip: the active ingredient in Percocet is the same as what is in oxycontin so be careful if your doctor gives it to you

    THC works best for me, UP here in the Evergreen state I'm allowed 15 plants and up to 28oz on person, Per Dr. orders and State law.

    yes oxy is real bad, up here its gotten to the point where working at Walgreens is more dangerous than being a police officer in L.A.

    Vicodin and Percocet both contain opioids which, as a class of drugs, can cause nausea to varying degrees. Since both are similar in how they work but are slightly different (chemically speaking), this is likely the reason why one of them caused the nausea and the other didn't. Morphine causes me to barf but the other opioids I have taken over the years do not.

    As for their addictiveness, there's way more to that than just the type of drug. A big part of it is the individual and whether or not they have that kind of personality. Don't get me wrong, people can get addicted to these medications, but taken to control pain under the proper circumstances, these types of meds are extremely effective. So many people go through unnecessary pain in their life because of their fear of addiction.

    Anyways... my 2 cents.

    hahaha, good gravy folks! Enough about the drugs! I got by with a few 'Aleive' gel caps! However, cus we're on the subject now, I really dislike all of them. Im with beefy, they make me itchy and nauseous. Pain pills are gross.

    No, but searching the base image url was a start. Worked with Cent a lot back in the day and had a knack for getting information from odd sources. The name of the item isn't on the url, but it did give me a starting point. Next time, don't direct link to it, heh.

    P.S. They must have jacked you on shipping, it was on there for only 200 or so.
