Maggie Gundersen, Fairewinds Associates:
I’d like to share with your listeners why I’m not coming [to local event]…
I had a car accident on Route 7.
A guy was traveling at 25 to 30 miles an hour and drove right into the back of my car and created a four car accident.
I was stopped. I was stopped at a stop light.
And he didn’t stop.
So I took a hell of a jolt.
Initially I thought I was ok, and I went through the first week and then I started getting all the concussion symptoms and I’ve seen two doctors who have diagnosed concussions. …
Arnie just came back from Japan, he took a book tour. I could not go because of some of my issues…
