Hey All ...

So sorry. I've been hopped up on pain killers and muscle relaxers. I haven't felt much like posting or even logging on. The bumps and bruises are healing, but my head is not. It's been EIGHT days and Allstate has STILL not looked at my vehicle or the other guys ... and I am SO worried ...

He says it was my fault and I say it was his, the investigation has not yet begun - they have to wait ten days for the police report to come out. The police report says it was my fault, but Allstate has assured me they do not take that at face value, they investigate.

So with being in pain, I have also had to deal with daily phone calls to them checking on status. So far, nothing and Christmas is two days away - I bet nothing will be done until at least Monday ...

Today I had a bit of a scare. I was driving to work (in my rental) and I started seeing stars and halos around the lights of other cars. I got into work and turned on the computer and it was like being drunk. I called my dad and since he works at a hospital he went to get a doctor and it was determined I am VERY sensitive to the muscle relaxers. I took one at nine PM last night and I think it finally wore off sometime this afternoon. Apparently Norflex has a half life. So when you take the second dose the first one is still in there working. I thought I was going to be ill this morning but all seems to be going well.

Then on the way home, Enterprise Rentals calls and tells me I have to return the car, Allstate will no longer pay for it. UM, WHAT?! So I have to pull over and gain control of myself and we got to the bottom of it. Apparently, every four days Allstate has to renew it with the rental company or they make you bring it back.So they renewed it for me, but I am still suffering the heartburn that call caused me.

AH, the things I am learning.

I am ok, I am alive- but I am frustrated beyond belief and worried about the outcome of the investigation- and yes, Conrad is being a dear. He listens when I cry, he cheers me up when I get down, he speaks sense to me, cooks when I just can't seem to make myself do it - and all manner of other things. He's a prince. It's good to be part of a team.

I'm so glad you have Conrad here to help you with all this. It seems so unfair that while you're in pain and out of it on muscle relaxers, you should have to deal with this crap. I hope everything works out, and soon!
