You know it, bought a new ford truck, did it to me the very next morning. Pulled it into the nearest dealers doorway, they told me they could fix it after lunch. I pulled the keys out and started walking before they decided to look at it. Took the mechanic a hole 30 sec to fix it.

the only thing i hate about parking lots, they're deemed no fault areas, in other words (unless you have undeniable proof) if someone hits you, you're just at a loss......which i think is dumb, expecially in cases like that

I feel your pain bro. I fell 32' thru a roof at work in feb 2010. Broke my back and neck. I just went back to work last week for the first time since my accident.
All I can say is take it easy, but don't bed yourself down. It'll make it worse. The best thing for my back, was constant movement and working it.
Laying down will make you old fast. I still have issues with my back and neck. But I man up, suck it up and deal with it(without any kind of meds). At least if you hurt, you know you're alive.

Work smart, not hard. My theory is, if its over 100lbs and I have to spread my arms wider than my shoulders, there is always someone else around that can help you out. No need to hurt yourself. Being 'man down' doesn't pay the bills. Hurtin yourself like that will make you get old real fast

Too much in life to be happy about bro. Don't let life get u down. If u got people to be around that make u feel better, hang out with them. If not, we all got your back.

Don't let the girl get to you either. If its meant to be, it'll work out. If not, the women out number the men now. Don't let anyone treat you bad or treat you the way you don't want to be treated. That goes for guys an girls. If she don't treat you right, somebody will. Take that beautiful stang out and be confident. If u see one you want, the worst thing she is gonna say is no. It's tough man. I know it is. Sometimes it's best to step away from the situation. Just don't talk to her for a day or so. It'll all work out. Don't hesitate to talk to people who care.
