I Was Hit By a Drunk Driver

In 1998, I was just 16 years old. My boyfriend at the time and myself, along with a friend of his, were trying to push start a truck to get it running again. Two guys in an old Trans Am, were drunk and going around 100 mph and slammed into the back of the truck where I had been standing. It crushed my legs in between the vehicles and I was drug around 50 feet, landing in the ditch. I don't recall much of that night, but I do know that I had to learn to walk again, amazingly I didn't lose my legs, and I was in the hospital for nearly 2 months, with a recovery of 8 months afterwards.

I could share a longer story, but I don't have the energy to do so, to this day, I am 27 years old, and I still have my hideous looking legs, and pain and problems, while the guys who did this to me, run free and are out doing the same stuff.

I am sorry to hear that this happened to you. However I am extremely happy to hear that you recovered and taught yourself to walk again. I really admire that kind of strength. So as terrible as that event was, surviving it really showed your true colors. You are so awesome!
