I remember one day soon after the accident sitting on my couch and my mother and father were in the living room with me. I was in terrible pain, TERRIBLE TERRIBLE pain, crying, with my head back and moving from side to side. I remember thinking completely seriously and saying out loud "I just want someone to beat me with a hammer....it would hurt less".
I don't feel that way anymore.
I am sorry mom and dad that you had to see your daughter that way.
