Every day living always reminded me of my present situation.

A little of my life story:

I’ve walked away from four car accidents, four motorcycle accidents, two bicycle accidents, a work place incident where a fork lift ran over my left foot that left me with multiple broken bones, ankle sprains, falls, bruises, cuts, and gashes. Injury has always been a part of my life and I thought it was normal for everyone else.

My last motorcycle accident has been the most traumatic severe injury yet. Just like any other day I was out riding to meet a friend after work on a Monday night at 8 pm. I was blindsided by another car just after passing through the intersection. I had the right of way and I was going the speed limit, but that doesn’t matter now. The other car turned left across yellow double solid lines into a CVS parking lot instead of turning left at the intersection it was supposed to. The car t-boned the left side of me and hit me so hard my motorcycle blew up throwing me in the air.   I landed 400 feet away flat on my back and broke my body from head to foot.

The injuries and 23 fractures I sustained were as follows:

The force of the blast was so great that every single bone just about broke when I landed flat on my back. I have 16 lbs of titanium throughout my body with pins and plates holding me together and a hole in my skull because my brain swelled almost killing me. I was in a coma for 21 days and in the hospital for almost 4 months. Learning how to do everything from the simplest task to talking to functioning in life again. It’s been 21 months and counting.

I learned to accept what has happened and move past it. I want to share how I did it and the little things that helped me stay sane even with all the trails and tribulations that came after the accident. Sometimes people don’t know how to treat you after a severe injury like this  especially your employer.

Overcoming these hardships have changed my outlook of life for the better and I have never been this optimistic about life ever. God still has plans for me and I am excited to discover what they are. If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to try to help you out.

All the best,

Lisa
