I was in a horrible accident 2 years ago. I was stopped for construction on the interstate, at the bottom of a hill. Three teens didn't pay attention to the warning signs and were ALL on their phone. We were hit 3 separate times and pushed into a large truck in front of us. My husband and kids are fine, but I unbundled after the first hit because the kids flipped out and I wanted to reassure them. There were 3 more impacts after that. I've had my right rotator cuff repaired, my spine fused at C3/C4 and 2 months ago I had my left rotator cuff repaired, along with torn cartilage. I am in pain every day of my life. I should also say that I'm 30 years old. I've read many stories on here similar to mine, but have yet to come across anyone in their 20s or 30s. I know they're out there. My question is HOW do you deal with pain every day? I don't sleep because I hurt. I have another disc messed up badly at C4/C5 but the neurosurgeon didn't want to do 2 fusions when I was 29. How do you deal with the INCREDIBLE depression? My husband is a wonderful man and tries so hard to understand but there's no way for him to. I promise I'm not trying to get attention or handing out invites to a pity party. I just need to hear from other people in my situation. I was told by my pain management doctor that I needed to understand that I will be in pain the rest of my life because of the extent of my injuries. I also struggle with anger. I'm angry that all 3 teens that hit us walked away from this. Don't get me wrong. At the same time, I wouldn't wish my pain on any of them. But it does anger me that they're fine and have moved on. Well I know the young lady who hit us last is probably dealing with PTSD as well. She was really shaken up and it was a horrible accident. I'm still afraid to take the interstate and avoid it at any cost. Is there ANYONE, any age, who can relate to me or give me advice?
