Hello all, let me begin my story at the beginning, when i was born, on friday the 13th. Ever since then it seems i encounter an inordinate amount of
misfortune in my daily existence. I know that everyone deals with just plain bad luck, but for me it's a bit different. Mine is so drastic that
my occurrences border on statistical improbability. I'm really not superstitious, I am an optimist, and make all efforts to think and act in a
positive manner, and assert myself as master of MY universe. The universe tests me profusely for some reason.
One example is lightning, it likes me. So far I've only been hit once, but i was indoors seeking shelter. The day before i was standing outside
at about the same time when a bolt of lightning hit the tree next to me. I got some charge off it. The next day it hit the window frame next to
the tree, and from the window frame into my arm and everything went kinda dull as i was knocked away from the window. Ever since i was a kid,
lightning would follow me. I'd be outside on a clear day, and out of nowhere lightning would explode a tree or a utility pole that was near me.
It got to where it happened so often that i wouldn't flinch when stuff blew up around me, until i got struck, now i duck and cover again when i hear
the crackling and get the tingling sensation.
Completely random things happen to me in cycles. For example, one night i was on my way to the skatepark, i had my helmet on, and while turning left
at a 4 way stop sign a drunk driver in a big freakin delta 88 plows my CRX. He then tries to run, so i chased him down. The chase went on for a bit
until i managed to corral him into a dead end street, i set up a roadblock and he tried to go around, went into a ditch, and back out, jumping dukes
of hazzard style into a backyard shed. I ended up going to jail for an unpaid ticket from when my license was stolen and used by someone, but
didn't get charged with "impersonating the dukes of hazzard". I did end up getting the ticket cleared up, getting out of jail, just in time to
walk across town, get my wrecked car back, and show up for my first day at my new job. How did the first day go? Well, I got in the equipment
truck (we were installing guardrails on roads) donned my helmet, and safety glasses just as the pile driver truck in front of us stops and the truck i
was in didn't. The pointy end of the driver came crashing through the windshield and hit me in the head before punching through the back of the
truck cab. The helmet saved my life, without it there'd be a big rectangular hole where my head is now, but my helemt bounced my head out of the
way and i just got a few flying glass scratches. It was a trip though to look forward just as the glass shattered, and see 20 tons of steel smack
me in the head. But i mean, both occurrences in less than 12 hours?
I've got tons of examples, including coming within feet of being plowed by a space rock once, but overall it just seems that there's something to
it. I work in the kitchen now, and i don't get cut too often. When i do get a cut, it's not just one, it'll be 4 fingers in 2 days, pressure
wrapped in duct tape and rubber gloves till i'm completely gimpy. I ended up in the hospital 3 times in 2 days from completely unrelated freak
accidents one weekend, the day after surgery to fix a broken finger tendon from a previous failed surgery, i went outside the next day, falling in one
hole during the day, spraining my ankle severely, back tot he hospitcal cause i was sure i broke it, and later on that day my crutch falling into a
3' deep fencepost hole in the grass, pulling the muscles in my neck and shoulders and knocking me out. I woke up in the back of an ambulance
extremely beaten down by the universe.
Do you have multiple occurrences of misfortune like i do? Why?
I feel like i'm immersed in synchronicitry most of the time.
