Finding minimalism in a world of consumerism. Have you ever been frustrated with the negativity that your thoughts seemingly force upon you?
I have no memory of this day or the hours preceeding or the days following. Here is my story…. I had just spent the long weekend at Lorne relaxing with A and was heading to work at my new job in the city I had been there 5 weeks.
Police later told us that witnesses said my car looked like it was in a pinball machine. When paramedics arrived I was unconscious. I remained unconscious as they cut me from the car. I later heard from a fireman who attended the scene, that they assumed when they arrived at the accident that they were going to be removing a body, my body, from the wreckage — they were surprised to find out I was still alive.
I was then rushed to the hospital, where they discovered I had a broken pelvis, internal bleeding, fractured vertebrae, and head, shoulder and foot injuries. I was pretty beaten up. My parents arrived the following day and stayed at my bedside for the remainder of the week.
During that time A and my dad went to the wreckers to collect my belongings from the car. My dad took one look at the car and left immediately A told me, my dad threw up after seeing what was left of my car.
The following month in hospital was a blur of pain, rehab and more pain. I wont include any pictures of my car here because several family members and friends have asked never to see them but here is one of me in the hospital. One of the hardest things for me following the accident was relearning how to walk.
One of my therapists told me that learning to walk as an adult is the most difficult thing a person can do. Even though it had only been a couple of weeks since I had walked, my body had been through so much trauma and was in so much pain that my brain was not sending the correct signals to my legs.
It was so frustrating not even to be able to put one foot in front of the other. After 5 weeks in hospital, I returned home in a wheelchair, with a walking frame my grandma had one the same.
I remember celebrating the day I walked from the front door to the letterbox approx 15m — I felt like I had run a marathon. I then graduated to a walking stick which made me really selfconscious and I used that for another couple of years.
It was approximately 4 years before I began to walk normally without a limp — which my body assumed was natural.
For the next few years I regularly attended rehab and a pain management program and had counselling as I became depressed at how much my life had changed and the effect it had on my personal and professional life.
It took awhile for me to realise how lucky I was to have survived that day and that my injuries could have been a lot worse. I was so fortunate to have such a wonderful and caring partner and be surrounded by family and friends who loved me.
I could not have gotten through this without them. Ten years later and I still have days where the pain is more than I can bear and I get angry and think why me.Hi, My name is Luci. If you have opened this forum, you probably want to know about the most unlucky day of my life. Well, I would be glad to tell you.
It all started when I woke up on a rainy day, and found my dog sleeping on the right side of me.
I petted him and for some reason he growled and bit me REALLY, REALLY HARD. So hard, it drew blood. May 30, · The remains of a man trying to escape the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius nearly 2, years ago were found in Pompeii, Italy, this week, and the photographs have become a meme.
But then, luck wasn’t actually on my side. During lunch time, I fall down from the stairs and got a bruised knee. I couldn’t even buy any food for lunch since I had to rest at the sick bay for the whole lunch time.
