Angry Needing Some Help!

I accidentally posted this message on the SPI Perf. forum, when I meant to post it here. So, I'll repost this myself right now, because I'd really like your imput. Please read on and post away, I truly appreciate it!

Thanks,
Iari

So I was driving to the Westfield Mall to see my brother tonight, because he's a professional dj and was hired by the Puma store to play a 4 hour set there, and I turned into a side street entrance to get into the Mall's parking garage. Well, on the way, I decided to cut across the parking lot and into the actual garage, and about 2 seconds into my cutting action, there is this horrendous - and I mean jarringly so - bump; I'd obviously driven over something. So I immediately stop the car and get out and look. And, whaddya know, I'd driven over one of those weird cement blocks they put to help denote where and when cars should stop parking.

Yes, it was terribly dark and unlit, but I was being a total brainiac - read: tool! - by cutting in the first place, so I understand that I get what I deserve. But, my question is this, and it's open to all y'all: What damage might I have done to the underside of my car?

I got out and looked underneath, checking for leakage, and yes, there is some leakage. I thought I did in my oil pan, but it's not oil I'm leaking, rather, it appears to be water. Still, the 'check my car' light in the bottom left dash is now glaring at me, and I notice that my car drives noticably rougher (to which all of you are now saying, "Duh!").

So, again, what do you think it could be, and how much would you guesstimate the repairs are going to be.

I'm already bummed and doing a well enuff job of kickin' my own @$$ about this, so please be gentle in your responses; I've wanted this car for 3 years now and the last thing I wanted to do was drive like an idiot; consequently, I had a real idiots moment tonight and I'm hating life right, and I'm pretty sure that if my car were a real person, she'd be hating me, too!



Holla...

Well, the moderators on this forum are like Johnny on the Spot. I apologize for re-posting this message. I didn't think my o.g. post would be moved here so quickly. Sorry.
