Some of you might remember my tailbone story. I broke it at work back in June of last year. It hasn't been the same. The accident wasn't even my fault, it was my bosses. She decided to mop the floor and not let anyone know while we were still moving stuff from the front to the back to wash. I fell on her wet floor. I've been to doctors, had x-rays, taken anti-inflammitories, done physical therapy, etc. The insurance company has fought me every step of the way. Anything to make it more difficult. I finally called the woman in charge of my case, told her that in no way did I consider my case closed and if they continued being difficult, I was going to sue them. Well, I got a call from an independant firm who is sending me to a doctor in Salt Lake. He's apparently very good. He will look at the injury and decide what the next step in treatment should be. As I sit here in my computer chair, which is cushioned, I ache almost as much as when I first broke it. I have a very hard time sitting through church, the chairs are cushioned also and the seats in the chapel are cushioned also. I can barely make it through and my husband has to pull me up so I can stand. It really hurts. I know there are people out there who fake injuries to get insurance money but I am not one of them. I have AS and I know that it's set into the bone at the break site. The only place I'm comfortable is in my recliner which I have pillows and cushions put in exact places where there is no pressure on the bone. I think I have 4 different things in the chair, barely enough room for me! Anyway, I'm hoping he'll get a good look at it, decide what my injury is worth and then we can settle this. I'm going to hurt for the rest of my life because of her carelessness. Someone should be held responsible and I should get adequate compensation. Ok, I'm done venting and my butt can't sit here any longer.
