Where have i gone?! what is going on?

Recommended Posts

This should be in a blog article but I said I'd pop it in the forum chat in case people want to discuss the situation.

Recently a lot has happened causing my absence at JR. 

So what's happened:

Car broke down on a sunday

About a month and a bit my car broke down. I lost all power and my car was basically able to speed up to around at max 60km/hr. Took it to the garage, one problem was the fact a bolt went on the exhaust manifold meaning there was no pressure to the turbo. After they resolve that issue I got a call from the garage saying your turbo is also gone. So I had to wait another few days for the turbo to be replaced. I was working from home in the week and a half while my car was getting repaired.

My car got rammed

After I picked up the car (literally was driving for an hour) a driver, who was on the phone rammed in to me at a speed of 60 - 70km/hr. There was a car in front of me turning right. I had come to a halt, looked in my mirror and a guy who was on the phone. Rammed the rear of my car cause nearly 1700 euro damage. I was took away to A and E due to shock and whiplash. The guy who crashed in to me was arrested due to a supposed outstanding warrant for his arrest. (Weird he didn't run after he hit me). With this whole ordeal the gent didn't produce a licence or insurance documentation which mean the cops here are now after him in relation to this now too. Which also means it's a more drawn out process getting my money back from getting my car repaired. Luckily work is helping me sort the bill out. (If they didn't help I'd be in worse shape).

I've been staying in limerick after this whole ordeal. I couldn't spend a month or so on my own at home (I was getting lonely as it was the week my car broke down) For the first week after the incident I was sleeping for the week as I couldn't muster the energy to do anything.

How's me after this?

I'm still suffering after effects of the whiplash. I'm having trouble sleeping, my neck, shoulders and back are in pain after it. It's been very hard to deal with the pain and I know for certain I never want to suffer this again. It's been causing me to be really tired and I can't stop falling asleep in the middle of trying to remotely work. 

What's happening now?

I'm still waiting for my car from the garage which should be done this Wednesday. It's going to be weird as I haven't drove properly for over a month and a bit now. I'm trying to get my life back on track and my solicitor is currently dealing with all the paperwork.

I'll be coming back to JR and starting to help develop our services further and we will be holding staff meetings again pretty soon when I get back to normality. 

For the people who play and use JR

I hope you now understand what I have been going through. All the redtape I've had to go through has been tough and that is why, while I have been putting comments in every now and again I've been pretty absent from all JR related activities. I can't wait to come back and continue to work on my life project.

If you have any questions  please let me know here and I'll reply when I see them.

Thanks to everyone who has wished me well and who have spoken to me on discord. I appreciate everyone's support
