The way I want to be... and was.

How do you overcome a serious accident? (After all the hoopla is over about how you've survived it all, and you are now coming to terms with the kind of life you might have to live [and how different it is from the one you were used to living]--and that scares you half to death--you have to ask yourself "what comes next?")

The doctor's are no help because they had started out by giving me a 3% chance of survival--so there's not much help there--but even if I wanted their opinion I can't get it right now because they aren't answering their phones at the moment. I know a lot of you wrote to me and told me that I could write to you if I ever wanted to, you see, but the thing is, I can't go back to the Yahoo pages and try and find all those letters again--it'll just be too depressing for me. My mom's idea is to go and see a Therapist (the brain kind) and tell him or her about my problems, but I doubt that would help. Dad just want's to be like Dad's everywhere and tells me that I'll be walking in no time--that I have nothing to worry about. Big help, when the only thing on my mind are those two and if I'll ever be able to get a job again... I miss my leg right now, and even though it's there, I wish it was back to the way it was before the accident.
