The topic: One of the insurance adjusters


was here Monday morning. The injury adjuster.  Took my statement and talked about treatment. Gave him the info from the chiro and the cost (which we’ve already paid, we got a 10% savings).

He’ll be calling again in a couple of weeks to check on my progress.  He talked a little about pain and suffering. I asked about the mileage to the doctor’s office.  Normally, it wouldn’t even come up, but I remembered that our insurance went up the year my mom was in SNF.  Visiting her every day put miles on the car that wouldn’t have been there otherwise and it pushed our mileage to just over the limit for the bottom rate.  So, I wondered about this. And with gas being so expensive, the cost is going to add up.

He said they don’t cover that. But it could be added into “pain and suffering”.  Or, he said, “another way to look at it is payment for inconvenience”.  Yeah, buddy, you got that right.

I don’t like leaving the house. And now, I have to leave at least three times a week for five weeks, two times a week for four weeks and once a week for four weeks.  A lot more than the once a month I had to leave before.


I just want to lay on the sofa and sleep.  My lower back hurts today.  My left shoulder has ice on it right now. The doc said it’s residual pain.

I want to go walking again in the morning.  I hate not being able to do something active.  I asked today at the doc’s if it would be okay to ride the stationery bike. I was told it shouldn’t be a problem, but if it starts to hurt, to stop.

My head just gets so heavy.

And I miss my little car.  I miss her a lot.

I haz a sad.

Somebody T-boned me a couple of years ago, and I had some injuries. If I had it to do over again, I would have asked for MUCH MORE for pain and suffering. I was trying to be “fair,” which I now believe was a mistake. Even driving by the intersection it happened in, which I must do 4 times most days, still is a nightmare.
