Hit and Run
I was a hit and run victim when I was 16 years old. The hospital called me their miracle. I was brain dead when the paramedics came. My knee muscle was torn out of my right leg.
I was in a coma for a couple of weeks. I had to learn to do everything all over again, including walk. I was violent in the coma. My parents still have scars from me.
The only emotion I knew after I woke up was anger. Then I learned depression. I still suffer from these 2 things 25 years later. I don't see myself as ever being cured. That's why I say, "I fell on my head and knocked a screw loose". Only now they call my anger anxiety.
The guy driving the car was drunk. It happened 1 block away from his house. He left his car parked in his driveway with my blood smeared all over it. My knee muscle was hanging off of his fender. We sued him for 1 million dollars, we won. He filed bankruptcy, and never had to pay $1.00.
I apologize to anyone that I may offend with some of my comments, but sometimes my anger takes over. Thank you for letting me tell my sad life story.
