Writers Workshop: When I felt afraid

This is my first time participating in MamaKats writer workshop.....I just recently stumbled upon this blog and some of the topics for this week interested me. I could have wrote on many of them but I chose to describe a moment when I felt afraid..........

I was in a car accident and also newly separated from my cheating husband. I do not remember any part of the accident except for hearing someone ask my cheating husband who he was. He replied that he was my husband (he left the cheating part out, lol) and the ambulance person asked him if he wanted to ride to the hospital with me. I was lying on the bed inside the ambulance and it seemed like he was 100 miles away down a long corridor where I could just barely see his fuzzy face. He told the ambulance person that he was not going to go because he was with his dad. I thought I was dying. I broke my back in 2 places, had a hole in my hand, broke my clavicle, broke 3 ribs and punctured a lung but he couldn’t ride to the hospital with me. Someone that he told he loved for 8 long years. That was asking too much? Apparently so because I rode to the hospital by myself. All alone and scared. He did go to his mom’s house and call my mother who lived an hour away. And his mom did come to the hospital to be with me. The damage was already done though. I have never and probably will never feel so alone in my whole entire life. I thought I was going to die all alone. But hey, he didn’t want to upset his girlfriend. You are probably wondering why he was there in the first place. I live in a super small town and he just happened to come upon the wreck that I was in. He was with her. He got out to check on the people and then he saw me, his wife, lying in a ditch. I had just left him 2 weeks prior to this.

After saying all that I am actually glad that he was there. He was able to call my mother and also he proved to me that he really was worthless as a husband.

Wow my girl...I knew about the accident but I had absolutely no idea that the cheating husband was there and didn't even have the decency to ride to the hospital with you when you were all alone. I also had no idea you were with such a loser for 8 long years. You poor thing. I want to give you huge hugs!!!

Oh man... WHAT A LOSER!

You must have felt so alone and relieved at the same time.

His Mama should be ashamed of herself for raising an idiot like that.

You are so much better without him.

I hope you realize that.

WTH! Are you kidding me? I am usually sooooo overly nice in these comment spots because, well I don't want to offend someone. But are you freaking kidding me? He did not get his sorry cheating butt in that ambulance? I am so terribly upset with someone I don't even know and just wanna give you a big ol' hug. Seriously!!!!! (can you tell I'm peeved?)

Mama Krit said...

Wow, what do you even say to that??
I imagine if you were helping someone who was in a car accident you go with them just so they wouldn't have to be alone. Even if they were a stranger... what an ass! (Wait, I can say that, right?)
Like you said, easy way for him to prove he really was worthless.
I wish I had been there, I would have held your hand. Known you or not. Especially if I had known you.

Mama Kat said...

Wow. Nothing like a giant slap in the face at such a critical moment. I'm wondering if you ever had words with him about it and what his excuse was...I'm with Mama Krit on this one. I would ride with a complete stranger too, how could anyone treat their own wife like that??
