Picking Up The Pieces (Part Two)
By Michelle R Kidwell Power In The Pen
Thursday, August 25, 2011

Rated "G" by the Author.

I wanted independence and look what it gave me, a lifetime sentence of depending on others.

 

 

 

I have played the what if game from the moment I got in that car knowing he was drunk and woke up a few days later in a hospital bed, paralyzed from the neck down.

At sixteen my life was destroyed and I had no one to blame but myself.

I was the one who got in the car smelling the alchol on his breath knowing he shouldnt be driving, but something about sixteen and raging hormones can make a girl stupid, at least it did me.

I should have known better, if I had listened to the common sense that said stay away from him and his drunken self that night, I would not be sitting in a chair paralyzed from the neck down.

Needing help with the little things.

I wanted independence and look what it gave me, a lifetime sentence of depending on others.

Barring a miracle I will be in this chair.

Paralyzed from the neck down.

I have limited use of my arms, and that with months and months of gruelling physical therapy, but I still need help for the most personal of things.

Humilating at times yes, but its the price I have to pay for a stupid decision I make.

So I am here telling my story, because I want to prevent others from making the mistake I made.

The mistake that nearly cost me my life.

I am glad she is determined to move on with her life, even with the circumstances she now faces due to the decision she made. The least she could have done was say no. She might be walking or acting like a typical teenage girl instead of sitting in a wheelchair and being paralyzed as a result. GREAT story, Michelle; well done!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :)
