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.
