I Was In a Head On Collision

Decemeber 15th 2006 i was in a head on car collision when a man smashed into me as he was driving on the wrong side of the road. I was in hospital for a week and am still off work due to the accident. I sustained many broken bones, had surgey to place metal rods and plates into my body. I now have complications from the surgery as well as many scars from the crash - particularly on my face. I was in a wheelchair for 19 weeks and was promoted to crutches last week!

Ouch! But it must feel good to back on your feet, even with the crutches. How long will you need those for?<br />

I hope you've got a good support network around you. It can't have been easy. I had surgery on my back many years ago, and I was reliant on other people for few months - it really galled me not being able to do the simplest of things that I'd always taken for granted. And you soon forget about dignity and pride when other folk have to help you dress or wash, or cut your toenails (but then again I'm a bloke, and I still think pedicures are the stuff of girlie beauty regimes that are unfathomable to us rugged splash-a-bit-of-water-about-and-we're-ready types)<br />

But seriously, I hope you're well on the way to a full recovery.
