what am i doing wrong here?
I placed the comma before and but there is still a punctuaion error.
All in all, the whole accident opened my eyes, and reality hit hard.
Your sentence is properly punctuated.
Sometimes, Grammarly "sees" a pattern that matches that of an incomplete appositive. In this case, it is seeing:
Noun, comma, article, adjective, noun --> all, the whole accident.
Because this pattern matches the most typical pattern for an appositive, Grammerly wants you to complete it by placing a comma after accident. Ignore the software.
I hope this helps.
