I been home for two days now, I moved back into my parents house after living on my own for 10 years. The hardest part is losing my Independance, I know as time goes on I will gain a lot of it back as I am very strong minded and push myself hard.
I just wanted to share my experience and how I ended up here , I was driving to visit a good friend of mine in the upstate New York area. A guy pissed off at the world drives right up my ass , goes around me and slows down so I sped up and got into the lane to the right of me as I did this he cuts me off and jams on the brakes. I am a pretty good driver I hit my brakes hard managed to miss him and other cars, but I slid off the road missing concrete divider and trees but my car caught a ditch and rolled 4x at 70 + mph with no seat belt. I some how remained conscious and remember it all, was even able to give emt/Police vehicle description , plate number and emergency contact numbers for them to call.
I was brought to a local hospital first when they realized the severity of my injury , I was transferred to Albany med and operated on later that night, I had a c7 burst fracture that was very terrifying as the doctor put it. They removed my c7 , replaced withe another piece of bone and fused together. I then spent 2 months in the ICU on a vent for a month.
Once I left there I went to mount Sinai rehab ( Great Facilty) for 9 weeks where I worked really hard to strengthen my arms which I'm thankful to have.
Thanks for listening , Nick
