In June of 2005, I was in a severe rollover car accident and severed my spinal cord. I also had a full facial laceration meaning I was cut from ear to ear and severely damaged my frontal lobe, I hit and busted out the back windshield with my head and it took all of my hair off the top. I ended up having over 300 stitches in almost a hundred Staples to reconstruct both my face and head. I was then put into a back brace and told that that would make me have the best quality of life possible with my injuries but after about six months my mother realized everything had gone wrong. I was hunchbacked from my T9 vertebrae and was 47 degrees angle meaning I was about to break myself in half basically. I’m not sure if you all know of the organization called Shriners, but they are amazing my mom had several opinions and finally Shriners took me and under their wing and within about a month I was back up on my feet and learning to walk again! Now it’s been 13 years and I refuse to file any kind of disability assistance, but now with all the wear and tear from work I am unable 2 be on my feet for too long or lift anything at this time. I have never felt this way, I feel unable to provide for myself and my home. I currently live with my sister and her son, which is my nephew, and we are now in the position where we are about to lose our home and everything we have worked for. All of my utilities are on disconnect and personal finances and bills are extremely overdue I feel like I’m drowning and it has taken everything to reach out but I beg and pray that I see some kind of light at the end of this tunnel! I thank you all for reading this and giving me simply that time. Happy holidays and I hope to get 2019 started off right!
