Ugh, I'm so sorry! Glad it's not worse, though. And it really fucking sucks that you didn't get the license plate of the asshole that hit you.

You've got decent health insurance, right?

Thank god for small miracles: the UC graduate students are represented by the United Auto Workers, so we've got very good health insurance. My MRI cost me $12, I think. As for catching the asshole who did this, the police are investigating it seriously, since he actually committed a felony (a couple of them, actually). But I'm not keeping my fingers crossed.


Yeah, it's hard to find those guys. My bf got hit by a car a year ago on his bike. It did some serious damage, and they never found the guy. Bf didn't have health insurance, either.

Disgusting. I hope none of the damage is bad enough to give you any lasting problems.


I think the key, Scott, and perhaps you've thought of this already, is to make the guy out to be a real badass, and to find some Rambo cop to whom you can make your plea, for divine retribution and justice. I'm sure you can come up with something, some distinguishing detail that makes this dangerous eccentric and bloodthirsty freak. Exaggerate, exxagerate. It doesn't matter if it's true. The main thing is to seduce the cops with the idea of this guy, and of course the glory and fame his catch will secure them. Of the stories that will last for months. You get the idea. Good luck.

(Or, you could just focus on feeling better. It's not like this guy has stolen anything irreplaceable of yours.)

Get well soon, Scott.

Ouch. Ouch ouch ouch.

That doesn't sound very fun at all.

But thank God for the UAW and their health insurance!
