Yesterday marks one year.. At this time last year I was probably laying in a hospital bed at sunnybrook praying that everything that just happened would just undo itself. Long story short, I was involved in a one car car accident. I was on the freeway going about 80 & suddenly there was a drop in the road & gravel and dirt everywhere. I pressed on the breaks to slow down and my car started swerving, there were deep ditches on the side of the road so I swerved towards the center to avoid it and slammed on my breaks.. Worst decision. The car spun out of control onto the other side of the road, flipped into the ditch and then flipped over again onto its tires. Everything happened so fast, one minute I was driving, the next I was in the ditch, blood gushing from my skull. Thankyou to the 2 guys driving behind me that stopped; thankyou whoever you are for helping to control the bleeding, calling 911 and my family and for holding up my neck for me for 20 mins before an ambulance came. I found out after that I had severely fractured my c2 bone (a bone in your neck that's part of your spine) and I'm extremely lucky and fortunate not to be paralyzed. (Actually I'm also lucky I'm not taller because apparently if I was the impact of roof caving in would have completely crushed my neck.) I wore a halo brace for over 3 months and stayed in the a recovery center for about a month of that time. I'm just thankful, not only for still being here, but for still being able to live my life the way I was before the accident. Thank you to everyone who stood by me and held my hand, especially my boyfriend and my mom. And thankyou to everyone who took time out of their day to come and see me. You never think something like this would happen to you until it does. I appreciate life so much more now & try not to say anything like "I'll leave it for tmmr" because tmmr isn't promised to anyone.
