Day 26

Thirty Days of Truth
Day 26: Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?

There was one time. It was after my car accident, but before my amputation. I was 2.5 hours away from home at UVA Hospital. I was NOT healing the way I was supposed to be and I was there a LOT longer than I should've been. Then 9-11-01 happened. It was sheer madness. They brought some of the burn victims from the Pentagon to UVA. I was on the Severe Burn & Trauma Unit. I couldn't get in touch with my family or anyone for that matter. Add that to already being depressed and it was a recipe for an emotional disaster.
