Hi All:

Just spotted this. I have been lurking a bit here and there but not really posting much lately.

It's not as bad as it sounds. At the same time as people were on here posting about celebrating St. Patrick's Day, I was over in Northern Ireland visiting a friend. On the way from Belfast Airport to my friend's house near Strangford Lough, her car was hit at high speed by a big white van, driven by someone who was over 3 x the legal limit (so drunk he had been kicked out of the pub, in fact). He came out of nowhere, driving at about 40 mph down a one-way street (the wrong way) and slammed into my side of the car. Luckily, he hit the engine compartment, which was completely smashed to pieces, otherwise it could have been a different story.

Anyway, long story short, after being strapped up and taken in an ambulance all the way back to Belfast to A&E (what an experience that was - welcome to NHS Northern Ireland style), I was discharged the next day and have been recovering since. No major broken bones (except a few cracked ribs), just what you'd expect from a high-speed collision (neck, chest, ribs, head, etc. felt like they'd been kicked by a horse). The main thing is that after 4 weeks I still get splitting headaches most of the time and get a right crick in the neck if I sit at a computer for too long. Few other things but thankfully my good looks weren't damaged - thank goodness the 13-year old air bags and seat belts in her car worked. ;)

Anyway, I was a bit surprised to see this thread but appreciate all the kind comments. I'm back at work and will try to post a bit more on here again once I can dig myself out from the huge backlog of emails!

What an awful experience - hope you feel better soon and the headaches subside.

Oh goodness, dunroving, that sounds awful! Glad you are recovering but it is obviously going to take time. Take care.
