On July 31st of last year, I fell asleep at the wheel and went into the median of the highway. A metal post went through the floorboard of my car, through the bottom of my seat, the bottom of my thigh, and came out of the top and touched my chest. Almost went in. My femoral artery was missed by 1 mm. I was in a ventilator and paralyzed on my left lower side for a few weeks. I was in the hospital for 7.5 weeks. I have had 12 surgeries to reconstruct my leg. I am still struggling daily. I have anxiety. PTSD. Chronic pain in my left thigh and knee and hip. I want to know i am not alone. That there are others that deal with these issues, too. Tonight i am feeling sad and alone. I feel like giving up in my recovery. That i should just lay in bed and rest all day every day instead of getting up and fighting the anxiety, fear, pain. And i do. I fight. But tonight, i feel like giving up.
Hi there, hope all of you are doing well. I just joined thanks to stumbling upon a post from someone who was experiencing work-related stress. I have been experiencing it, primarily from the temperaments of my boss that made me affected emotionally and physically. There are days that I dread going to work and take day offs to get away from the office. I'll be late to the office every other day...
Honestly there's not much that makes me feel better. I'm just pushing through because I don't really have another choice. I've tried almost everything and ive kind of just reached the point of realization that I'm just one of those people that are here to make everyone else happy, that this is just my life now and thats it. There's no happiness for people like me.
