Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I think I may have posted about this last year, I'm after further advice.
Last year I was cycling home on my little folding bike when a taxi pulled out of a junction and drove straight in to me. I was in a cycle lane at the time, and my bike's lights were on. I hit the ground pretty hard and ended up fairly bruised and battered with a sore elbow. My bike ended up worse off and the front wheel had buckled.
The taxi driver gave me a lift home and gave me his number, so I could let him know about repairs to the bike. A woman also followed (unbeknown to me at the time) and as I was going in to my house she tapped me on the shoulder and passed me her number saying she'd be willing to be an independent witness.
Anyway, I didn't think much of the injuries but I was persuaded to go to the hospital anyway and phone the police. I reported it to the police and had myself checked out, all seemed well, they were only a little concerned with my elbow, if it didn't sort itself out I was to go back.
I like my rock climbing though, and didn't want to be laid up anytime, so I just put up with the slight pain in my elbow and went back to it a couple of days later, same with my swimming. Eventually it would just twinge if I put both elbows down on something whilst resting, after a while longer this stopped too.
The replacement part came in for my bike and the taxi driver paid for it.
All was well.
Then last Thursday, some 15 months on, I slipped whilst climbing and banged my elbow. This isn't something unusual and I've done it before, however I must have hit the point on my elbow I hurt when coming off my bike. The pain came back instantly. My elbow now feels exactly like it did after my accident.
Now my natural instinct is just to put up and get on with things and it'll go off again, as it did before but I'm doubting this is healthy. I just don't want too much down-time from my climbing!
So any opinions? Should I go get it checked out at the doctors, or maybe i just bruised it? If it is damaged should I do anything regarding the taxi driver? I didn't bother with anything previously as I didn't think it had done any harm, so just let him pay for the bike.
