When Life Gives You Lemons (Katrina's Story) Part One
By Michelle R Kidwell Power In The Pen

Rated "G" by the Author.

Share this with your friends on FaceBook

At first I went through a depression, I did not think my life was going to be worth living, but soon I discovered my life was what you make it, and I learned to live within my limitations. I was in the hospital for three months, relearning the simple tasks that I had taken for granted for so long, and trying to keep up with my school work. I did not want to fall behind.

 

 

 

Several years ago my life was forever changed.  In the matter of seconds I went from being your active highschool junior, planning for college to being strapped to a stryer frame.  I heard the doctor say words like shes lucky to be alive, she will never walk again.

At first I went through a depression, I did not think my life was going to be worth living, but soon I discovered my life was what you make it, and I learned to live within my limitations.  I was in the hospital for three months, relearning the simple tasks that I had taken for granted for so long, and trying to keep up with my school work. I did not want to fall behind.

Physical therapy was not only difficult and painful it was frustraring, soon I began to realize the doctors were right, and I could no longer pretend that everything was going to go back to the way it was.  I felt nothing below the chest, and I had no control of the spasms that sometimes shook me out of my chair, that was probably the most frustrating, for the first few months I spent many months crying myself to sleep, but before long I realized that my self pity was not doing me any good.  I was tired of the tears, and I decided to accept what happen, and in a strange way the accident brought me closer to God.  It was a slow rebirth but it was a rebirth none the less.

My story does not end with the accident, it is just the new chapter in my life.
