My name is Lisa and I'm 31 years old. I was the victim of a rear end car accident last December. The collision caused the ligament in my neck to tear in multiple places. My facet joints are also injured from the impact. My injuries also cause me constant headaches, nausea, fatigue, and several other symptoms.
I have spent the past 10 months in constant pain, trying to put on a happy face for the comfort of those around me. But the worst thing I've experienced throughout all of this has been the loneliness. I've lost several friends, a man I thought I would spend the rest of my life with, and so much precious time. It's difficult for others to understand and/or comprehend a pain that hides from view. They don't see open wounds or a cast. I decided to join this forum in hopes of finding people/a person to talk with that can relate and understand.
