The question, O me! so sad, recurring, What good amid these, O me, O life?


That you are here, that life exists, and identity;
That the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.
~Walt Whitman

Do not believe that he who seeks to comfort you lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life has much difficulty... Were it otherwise he would never have been able to find those words.

Pregnancy and car accidents The two don't mix. Yesterday evening one of my biggest fears came true. I was in a car accident. This was my first ever car accident and it was a doozey. I got t-boned on my driver side by a truck that ran a red light. I keep replaying the moment in my head over and over again. Ryan and I have seen so many accidents happen when people take off the second the light turns green and then they get slammed by some idiot who was running a red light. Because of this, I always take a few seconds pause before I go to make sure that everyone has stopped. I did this as normal, except I couldn't see who was coming from my left side because there was a giant truck right next to me. Both of us started slowly when our light turned green and I noticed from the corner of my eye that the person next to me suddenly slammed on their brakes. I remember thinking "that's odd" and I looked over to see what happened and that's when I saw the white Ford Ranger coming straight towards my car.

In that second I knew I was going to get hit. He was going far too fast for me to avoid it. All I could think was I couldn't let him hit my door directly. All I could think of was saving my baby. I hit the gas as hard as I could and managed to launch forward enough that when he hit me he was hitting the tail end of my driver door, the B pillar of my car, and the entirety of the rear driver side door. The paramedics later told me that my quick thinking likely saved saved my baby from any serious damage or worse. At 29 weeks pregnant she was just strong enough to handle the force of the collision. The next 15 minutes were a complete blur. 3 people stayed with me until help arrived. One of them was a nurse and she helped keep me calm enough that I could focus on kick counts.

The rest of the night was spent being poked and prodded. Being double and triple checked that I wasn't going into labor, and being over all watched like a hawk until the morning.
