First I want to start by thanking EVERYONE who commented on my last entry. It really meant s lot. It's nice to have something encouraging to read when my temporary happiness goes away. I have not let the car accident upset me too much. As I said before, driving was a pain and I was only going necessary places like to work, church, the store so I didn't enjoy it much. I did enjoy the fact that I finally had my license though. Even if I have no car, I still accomplished a milestone by getting my license. I found out I was cited for the accident so if the medical review board hears about this Im sure my license will be taken away after my next evaluation. For those of you wondering here is the way the accident happened
I was on my way to work staying in my far right lane because I knew I had to turn right at the next street and didn't like switching lanes. People on military base are so rude and don't like letting you in especially when everyone (soldiers and civilians) are trying to make it to work on time. People in front of me started getting over to the left lane and I seen police cars further ahead in my lane so I realized I would have to get over as well. I seen the Army jeep to my left and put on my signal and slowed down so he could pass me and I could get in that lane but the longer I had my signal on, the closer I was getting to the police car in front of me and he still was not letting me in. So I increased my speed, got over, then heard my car get bumped behind me, I spun in a circle and braked ending up in the middle lane but not going into the oncoming traffic (it was a 5 lane road). That's what I heard the glass. I looked up to my left and seen the front of the jeep in my window. Basically I was hit twice, from the corner and from the side. No officer took my report. Everyone just kept convincing me to go to the hospital and talk to the cops later. Now I hear I have a citation for improper lane change but how could that be when I was signaling? Everyone had on uniforms (MPs, soldiers in the jeep, medic, and people around) so I don't know who hit me. All I know is I didn't give my side to the story nor was given the opportunity to speak with an officer and they have already cited me. I am going to talk to the investigator next week so please keep me in prayers that I get this straightened out. Im not ready to go back to driving just yet but if I get my license taken away I will be devastated. All I can do is hope they hear my side to the story and reconsider the citation.
