coma
car accident
quadriplegic
I don't know if I'm ready to see the man I've loved, looked up to and idolized unable to put his hand on my thigh or pick up a guitar.
brain injury
I’ve taken a lot of things for granted. My literacy, along with the ability to both comprehend and absorb what I have read, the ability to write in a straight line, to understand the passing of time.
car accident
“I kept thinking you were going to turn any second now,” my father said later, “but then you didn’t, and it was too late for me to grab the wheel.”
broken legs
I can see in hindsight that this accident was meant to make me a stronger person.
