Are You Kidding Me?

I am not in a good place today. I'm actually pretty angry and sad and frankly, beat down. Last Saturday, my husband and I were in a 7 car pile up. A whole lot of chaos is how I would describe it, but it came down to a truck that didn't stop and rear ended us. It was scary and violent, and luckily we both walked away unhurt. Now I have either another totalled car or one that will take 6-8 weeks to repair.

For the third time in 4 months I am dealing with a major insurance situation. The first was a head on collision in May, where a 19 year old girl ran a red light. The second was a burst pipe in the house that caused a lot of damage to 3 floors. And now... ugh.

I get that I am supposed to be thankful that we are okay, and I am.

I get that I need to focus on the really good things in my life, and I know I have a lot of good things.

I get that things are out of my control and I have to just deal with it as it comes, and I clearly am doing that.

But, I am PISSED!

Wow, it feels good to say that. And I'm just going to let myself feel that this time. I'll let you know when I'm back to normal...

  1. Oh Betsy, I am so sorry to hear about your accident. I'm glad you guys are ok. You have dealth with so much lately, like you needed more stress!

    You are allowed to be pissed off! Blow off the steam, rant and rave, get it out. I'm sure your workouts will help.

    Then, try to relax. As frustrating as it is to deal with insurance, you have to. Try not to let it get you too mad. Maybe after each phone call you sit quietly, breathe deep, and take 2 min for yourself to re-group.

    Hang in there. Things happen in 3s so your covered!

  2. You deserve to be upset! Remember you are HUMAN and can experience normal emotions - you don't have to be superwoman all the time! :)

  3. I agree, it's okay to be angry. It doesn't mean you're not thankful that you were both alright, it just makes you human! And bottling up anger isn't healthy for anyone, especially when you've been through so much lately. Find a way to let it go, either by screaming loudly, taking deep breaths or having a glass of wine or two (or three). Things will get better, and I'm praying that this time you'll breeze through the insurance red tape since you're now practically a pro! :)
