Hi all, I'm Alicia and as my user name states I am still dreaming.
27 days after I turned 18 my life changed forever. I rolled my Jeep and my body bent over my seat causing compressiong fractures at thoracic and upper lumbar levels. A week in the hospital and I left with some new hardware and a brand new mentality. I was no longer invincible...I became a fighter well aware of my weakness and strengths.
Im 22 now. Four years have done a lot to me...for me.
Pain is an interesting may to measure time because it makes life seem faster, and slower all at once. Its like...time seems to pass you by like you're just surviving but then again its dragging because the pain is there all the time.
Some days are better than others but sometimes I just think some days I;m STRONGER than others....
But then I think..."...I'm going to feel like this forever..." and four years of constant pain seems like an eternity again.
