    I wasn't speeding, maybe I took that corner just a liiiittle bit too fast, but after enough years of cars dripping oil and tires leaving rubber, roads just get slippery.
    And 2jazzy said it, it's a bitch about those guard rails

    Red face i have'nt figured out yet....

    ....if i should have let someone else go milk the cows that morning, or if i should have stopped and TAKEN A NAP! ..."DUH"... sometime during my 16 hour road trip later that day.....either way, sleeping in a moving vehicle should be left to PASSENGERS ONLY!

    MVA. Hit by 2 dillholes who were way beyond drunk. Courts deemed it first degree murder of the woman who was killed in our car and 2 counts of attempted murder. Unfourtunately, the guys both died and never got to serve their time.
    Don't think of yourself as an ugly person, just a beautiful monkey.
    Always remember: if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.

    Epidural Abcess of the Cervical Spine at C-5 which compressed my cord. This from a staff infection 7 years ago this May. I too gained back sensation and movement everywhere but not strong enough to walk or support weight.

    My Son was backseat Toyota Echo, unbelted, ejected through back windshield, over that guard rail onto pavement. Two years ago tomorrow night at 9p.m.

    LOL me too feisty, but I was in a car driven by someone who shouldn't have been driving, slid in gravel when taking a turn too quickly, hit a stop sign and turned over in a ditch.

    I had been swimming since birth, loved the water. At age 29 the diving board decided i needed to meet the bottom of the pool. Left me C5/6.
