I was in an auto accident 4/03/11..I missed an L shaped curve and jumped a hill landing upside down in my town n country mini van. After I checked myself out and realized I was upside down I unbuckled my seat belt and found a sliding door I could opened. I finally made my way to the road, my head and left arm was bleeding and I couldn't pick my right arm up. A couple stopped and called my boyfriend and a short time later a jeep stopped with off duty millitary men I can't thank these people enough I live in a very rural area and was fortunate they came by.. When the ambulance arrived the paramedic told me she had picked up several people on this curve.. When I made it to the ER the nurse was assessing me I told her I couldn't move my right arm and i was having dificulty catching my breathe.She immediately went to get the Dr they rushed me to get a scan.. It reveled I had crushed my C 6,7 vertabrae and I had stretched my artery in my neck so bad it had fraed internally and set up a blood clot.. Before they they could operate my artery had to heal so I was put on blood thinners.. On 4/08/11 they operated I was terrified but knew it had to be done, fragments of bone was actually in my spinal fluid. The Doctors replaced my C 6,7 with cadaver bone and fused C5,6,7 together and placed a titanium plate with 6 screws to secure them. They were considering a halo but decided to just let me wear a neck brace (collar) instead. I spent 12 days in the step down unit from ICU, I felt very lonely I could only see my family an hour twice a day but I also felt very blessed two other patients who had also sufferd broken necks and were paralysed.. I have had pain, numbness,and tingling, in my neck and right arm I have tremors in my hand especially when i try and concentrate on useing it.. I am on loratab, flexeril, lyrica and a Tens Unit I've also started taking celexa for depression. I was a casino table games dealer for about 12 years but of course can no longer deal cards just the standing and reaching would do me in.. I have tried a partime desk job but could no longer type and sitting to long was painful. Then I got a job at a cellular store needless to say they let me go for not being able to perform my task.. I have been on 4 more interviews as soon as they hear of my condition and limitations I do not get a call back. I did get a return email stating how they thought I was an excellent candidate but decided not to hire me in fear I would hurt myself.. I applied for disability by suggestion of my doctor they denied me so I've appealed but this time I have an attorney. As a single mother of 4 two grown and a 14 yr old boy and 12 yr old girl not being able to work and set a positive example for my kids is the hardest thing ever!! I've never been a quitter so I will continue to try and get better..
