My Story:
Crushed by a falling tree December of 2000, suffering a subdural hematoma, eight broken ribs with a collapsed lung my spinal column was crushed over 3 inches. Now living with a spinal column having nearly as much titanium as a Ferrari holding 12 vertebrae, or what's left of them, together I've continued to work and raise my kids...well I've allowed my wife to raise our kids. For most of the time since my injury I've suffered horrific chronic pain and drug side effects equally terrifying. Speaking of my wife, it is true that the caregivers of those suffering debilitating illness or injury are angels of mercy. They often have a tougher time caring for us than we do being cared for. I've learned that knowledge is power and that to survive we must learn how our body works in order to use the tools given to us as we map out our new life. Back to the Ferrari, one could have the best mechanic's tools in the world, but without knowledge such tools are merely useless pieces of forged steel.
