The Posse Rides Again

by Lee McKenzie

Two months ago, while on my way to meet a friend, I stopped at red light . . . and the next thing I knew I was in the back of an ambulance. Someone had rear-ended me. I was driving my husband’s truck and the impact caused the seat and my head to snap back and smash the back window out of the cab. Now, after many sessions with my doctor and physiotherapist and massage therapist, I’ve started to regain the mobility in my neck and shoulders. I feel as though the fog has lifted and I have more energy to do the things I’ve always taken for granted.

What I discovered these past weeks was that any time I’ve tried to overdo things, my body fought back and I ended up in bed with Ibuprofen and an ice pack. I finally had to acknowledge that I couldn’t spend hours at the computer, weed the flower beds or tear through the house with vacuum cleaner. And it was when I accepted those limitations and indulged myself with a stack of good books and DVDs that I really started to heal.

So what has this experience taught me? Always follow the Wet Noodle Posse’s advice. Be good to yourself, or else!

((((((((Lee)))))))) I'm so sorry you had to go through that. Absolutely, take care of yourself or the Posse will show up at your door. (And 30 wet noodle lashes for not letting us know sooner.)

Lee! You poor thing! I'm SO sorry you had to go through that.

I guess this is a lesson to the rest of us to take better care of ourselves by working some preventative reading and DVD'ing into our schedules.

I'm sorry about your accident, but I'm so glad it wasn't worse. I'm glad you're on the mend.
