I was in a severe motorcycle accident a few months ago. doctors told my parents and friends that i may not make it and that everyone should be prepared for the worse. i was flown to another hospital by chopper. i was in intensive care for a week then moved to regular care for 10 days then a rehab/physical therapy hospital for 15 days. i had a WONDERFUL support of love from family and friends while i was in the hospital. i had several visitors.. some days the nurse had to limit how many people i could have in the room at a time. then as i started healing and moved into my moms house while i get better the friends stopped showing up. 6 months later AND STILL RECOVERING AND HEALING i couldnt tell you the last time i had a visitor. yes i am doing SO much better than a month ago but i still have problems with stairs, moving around and i feel so lonely and it has caused some depression. i am sure the pain meds i am on are not helping but i am not used to be left out and being alone like this. i just need someone that can relate i have been depressed for several years, even before my cocaine detox probably, but now i am taking action and trying to get everything in control but i feel the loneliness and depression is getting the best of me. in the books that i have read of people in similar accident situations they experience the same thing and one lady even tried suicide. i have sent texts, made calls, emails everything you can think of asking for help and visitors. the worst of that is that no one replies. i learned a lot about my friends lately. is there a problem with me?? what have others done that were in this same slump?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
My ENT sent me for more tests last week...one where they had me lie back in a chair, with blacked out goggles on so I couldn't see while they administered water into my ears one at a time ( first warm, then room-tempurature, then cold) while they video taped my eyes and asked me questions to determine how cognizant I was... This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
