OVERCOMING STAGNATION

Updated: Feb 25, 2022

It was 2 pm on a November afternoon, I was leaving my parents house to go back home to

New Jersey, hoping to reach before the predicted snowstorm would take place. Fifteen

minutes into my drive, I realized that the snow had started to fall. Rainy. Slushy.

Slippery. I was stuck in a traffic light for the next two hours. All I could see was the

SUV, a pick-up truck and a bus around my car. I was caved in. The noise was getting

louder. Vehicles honking from every direction. People were frustrated as they were

accelerating to get their tires out of the snow-covered roads. My heart was pounding. I

was panicking. I was trapped, with no way out. By 6 pm and I still had no luck. I was in

the same spot.

 

Oh! I forgot to tell you, I was four months pregnant. I felt the anxiety kicking in twice as

hard. I rolled down my window after 4-5 hours of being stagnant in one place. It was one

of the worst winter storms. Chaos was everywhere. Finally, I built up my courage to ask

for help, realizing everyone around me was just as desperate as I was. I spoke to the lady

in the pick-up truck. I told her that I was pregnant and that I needed to get my car parked

on the side somehow. Needless to say, I was ready to abandon my car and walk home if I

had to. However, I was so afraid and fearful of putting my foot on the accelerator

thinking that my car is going to slip and slide in the storm. I did not want to hit anyone or

cause any wreak havoc.


Thankfully, the lady called a cop who was standing a few feet ahead and he came over

to help me. I stepped out of the car. He got in and pressed on the accelerator and managed

to get my car a few feet off the road and parked my car on the curb. I planned to come back

and get my car in the morning. So I left my car there and started walking. I had no idea where

the next subway station was and it took me over 40 min of walking in the cold stormy weather.

I finally reached the underground railway. It was almost 9 pm and I had to change trains 4 times.

I was thoroughly exhausted. I finally managed to get through the right trains and reached my destination. I was so happy to see my husband and brother-in-law waiting to pick me up.

A sigh of relief!
