Title: I believe I have some explaining to do...
Post by: Arconian on July 27, 2005, 12:09:02 PM
You may have noticed that I haven't updated much and I felt that I had to explain this. A few days, a say a few days but it actualy happend two or three weeks ago,  I was hit by a car. I miraculously escaped skin deep wounds even though I went right through his windshield. Anyway imidiatly after I started feeling nausious and dizzy every time I stood up walked around or tried to think a little to hard.

Passing it off as shock I decided it would pass after a while no harm done. But when iot hadn't passed by last week and I started running fevers and spells of nausia to big to ignore I went to the doctors...Turns out I have a pretty damn severe concussion. Hope this explains the general lack of progress by me and the stupidness of my latest posts  :?

A concussion.  :eek: Oh my, that's awful. I had one of those ones when I fell rather badly of a horse. I couldn't read for an entire week, seriously. :( After that week I tried to get back to school, but that didn't work at all. I managed to hold on for a while, but then had to stay home for four weeks to really recover. :( And after that I kept being more vulnerable and weaker for several months. :(

So instead of asking for updates on the progress, I'm going to be really upset by you if you dare to do anything that will give you a headache, makes you feel tired, makes you dizzy or exhaust you in any other way. Listen to your body and stop every time you have to. Please don't underestimate concussions; you'll need quite some time to recover and since you didn't do it right away it's going to take even longer. :(

If you don't take good care of yourself now, then you're going to regret it for many years. Why? Because you could have regular migraine attacks if you don't recover well enough. It happened to an acquaintance of mine, it's been four years ago and he still suffers from migraine every two weeks. Believe me, you don't want to experience that if you can avoid it, and that's not even the worst that can be caused because of this. :(

I know what I'm talking about here. You have to take care of yourself and you have to do it now. That's the only wise thing you can do. This can wait, RL can wait, you have to recover first or you're in for a lot of trouble later. And you don't want to go through that at all. :(

You take care of yourself, all right? (http://img1.yoxio.com/img/178853.gif)

I'm starting to HATE cars! Really! My best friend had a car accident not long ago, and he could have been killed! Grrr! And just the way I wanted to kick his butt for even getting in the same car with that perceptively challenged GIT, the same way I want to kick YOURS for not going to the doctor! People, if you don't start taking care of yourselves, I'll beat it in ya! Seriously! I won't have anymore of my friends hurt because of reclessness!  :mad: So, be good!

Oh, and hope you feel better soon, sweety!  :D *huggle*

Indeed. If everyone drived (drove?) safely, accidents would be less frequent. No reckless driving, no using cellphones in the car (unless they're handsfree), and definately no alcohol before driving. Most accidents are due to unwise use of a car, not the car itself.

'Tis an evil year...
I just realised I didn't say anything related to your recovery, and for that I'm sorry. Your PM indicated towards this, but I had no clue it was actually this severe. I hope you shall recover soon, mate. 'Twon't be the same without you here.

Still, I hope you won't read this until you're recovered. :wink: You don't want Lilly to kick your butt, now do you? Now, you go rest up and don't worry about the Mods. And don't apologise, alright? I'm doing enough unnecessary apologies for both of us. ;-) And besides, it REALLY isn't your fault.

Remember: Rest up, or we'll tie you to the bed until you're fine again. :wink:

Title: And now the Sh*t hits the fan
Post by: Arconian on July 28, 2005, 02:50:51 PM
First of all thanks for the kind words you guys, I really appreciate it! :)
This'll help speed up me recovery for sure. I know that you guys are gonna kick me fo' dis but I feel like crap, my heads achin' and I'm online. Why? 'Cause I'm angry. Why you ask?

Get ready for this...

The guy who hit me, is sueing me. That's right, while crossing the street, in a 30 KMPH zone, over a speedbump, I get hit by this guy doing at least 50. The only reason I do not die is because I jump on the hood of his car and roll...yes roll! Through his windshield.

After he stops he ask me if I'm gonna sue. Me thinking I'm perfectly O.K. an' feelin' sorry for Dweeby McDweebelson, say that I'm not going to but that the windshield is coming out of his pocket. He says he understands...Now I have a severe concussion and I get f*cking sued, :mad: I don't get the guy. If we take this to court I'm waltzing over his behind.

I'm sorry, gotta go sit down now... :cry:

What you said right there is what is wrong with the world, people sueing others because of their own stupidity. Well I hope you the best with your recovery and your legal troubles now.

Also kudos to your mad skills right there.  :D

Oh, ouch :-( I really, really hope that you recover soon, Arconian. Legally you should be in the right. He *was* obviously in the wrong, after all, the doctors should be able to prove this from your injuries.

But, good luck! I hope this goes smoothly for you...

Ooooh, BIG mistake, Arconian! He is suing you because TECHNICALLY (I'm not saying this is right, but it's how it goes) you were obliged to leave him your ensurance number, or your parents' if you are underage, or a number where he can contact you to pay for the damages. Since you didn't he has the ground for a law suit. In his statement he can babble whatever he wants, like it was the red light, you weren't watching, anything. He's probably some scum looking for easy cash... you be carefull with these idiots, I've seen this before.

Is that really true? Geez, how could he think of that guy's insurance when he rolled through his windshield a couple of minutes ago with a heavy concussion afterwards? That's just wrong wrong wrong... Sorry, but I'd think Arconian's health is more important than a fucking broken windshield, wouldn't you? I'm tempted to drive over to wherever that money-grubber's place and kick that speeding guy's ass for sueing my bud. And yes, I *CAN*. It's only a two hour drive, if he lives anywhere near Arconian.

Couldn't Arconian just give that asshole the money for the windshield and be done with it?

Bah....the victim gets blamed for everything, and it's not even his fault. That makes me so mad. I can't stand injustices like that!

Post by: Lilly on July 29, 2005, 12:55:20 AM
Well, the truth is, he can't really win the suit like this, but he'll try to intimidate you into believing he can. He's probably looking to settle.

Looks like I'm out late on a big event again.  :eek:

Arconian, even if that guy winns his lawsuit, which is highly unlikely unless you get an extremely incompetent judge, jury, or defence atourney, then you should still be able to counter-sue him for the injuries, both physical and emotonial, he's caused you, jackasses like that should loose their licenses and be locked into tiny cages somewhere where they can't trouble proper human beings! And that someone like that has the nerve, or even the possibility, to actually start demanding money for his fucking windshield...  :mad:  :mad:  :mad:   What's happening to this world, anyway?

I agree that you should take a rest and recover, because concussions should never be underestimated; I've only had a minor one when I fell down from a tree once and could barely drag myself from one place to the next for the reminder of the day, and that was nowhere close to what you've been through.  So take care, and I really hope that guy gets trashed in court. Or, failing that, in a dark alley.

Post by: Arconian on July 29, 2005, 03:29:33 PM
I'll just see what happens. I still think I was being overly kind by not even asking for his insurance and letting him go...  :) I'm just stupid like that.

Asking for insurance at a accident seen is like saying hello to a new person that you have met except for the fact that their wasn't a nice introduction.

I just had a look at my PM, and it seems I have some explaining to do.

I was positive I had sent my latest proofreads to you, but I don't have that message in my sent messages. :o  I'll send them over right away, but don't you dare do anything with them until you're all well again, you hear me?

omg, Arconian, I can't believe I didn't see this before  :eek:  That's terrible! *big hug* Don't you  DARE think about doing anything if you're concussed you hear me! Or I'll whack you with the cast on my arm ;)

And, I can't believe he's suing you for it  :shock: some people have no idea when they should quit while their ahead! I mean, geez, he should be lucky he isnt having to pay you damages. People like that make me so mad  :mad:


I really hope you feel/get better soon.  :-)  (and then you can re begin work on your mod without the fear of being beaten up by people who care about you)

It's more like saying "Hey there. You owe me money!" to a complete stranger. I'd inquire about the person's health, and call 112 (911 in Holland), should someone fly through MY windshield. Yeesh!

Thats what I would do and THEN ask for the insurance but I fear that my case would happen more than not.

can't sleep 'cause I'm goin' into surgery tomorrow. Went to the doctor's monday to talk about my concussion. When I came home my head felt sticky...and red stuff was coming into my vision. I was bleeding. Turns out I have a piece of glass stuck in my skull sad.gif . So now I know what's really causing these headaches. Only thing is it stuck so bad they'll need to cut me open...Life sucks. After this I'll be taking it easy for a week or two.


Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if my house exploded tommorow :cry:

Remember to take records of it just incase you want to sue the driver for everything bad that happened because of the incident.

And ask the doc for one of those neck supporting collars, just in case everything gets to courts ;)

Seriously, though, it sucks to hear all of this has happened to you. Just take it nice and easy, and get better soon, Ok, sweety?  :D

Hey I'm glad your back. (http://www.parentstep.com/forum/images/smilies/grouphug.gif) So how did the court thing go? I hope you kicked his but and sued him for everything he owned. Or maybe just that you got him to pay for damages.
