Flashback to 10/15/09. 8 years ago today I was in the hospital fighting a tough battle after a cop blew a red light with no lights on and T-Boned me. I was in the driver seat, he basically parked his car on my lap. With my door jammed shut, I climbed out of the car through the passenger side with no help. Looking at these photos there’s no way I should’ve made it, but my GOD loves me and that’s the only explanation for that.
I had a Punctured left lung, internal bleeding, no function in my left kidney amongst other injuries.
Believe it or not, that wasn’t the hard part. The ambulance ride was where the real fight took place. Barely breathing, I took quick short breaths all the way to the hospital. Each breath felt like someone was stabbing me in my chest with a knife, I’ll never forget that pain. It hurt so bad to breathe, that I actually thought about taking my last breath. Deciding not to give up I inhaled and exhaled and fought through the pain, deciding to live.
It was a long road to recovery. Some family and friends never checked on me, while others pretended to care (some actually did care tho, but it was just a few). No law suit, No Money, no apology was ever paid. I had to get over it. I was almost robbed of my life, marriage, meeting my son and a host of other great memories that I went on to create.
So what I’m trying to simply say is, thank GOD I don’t look like what I been through. And man am I happy to be alive!
This situation taught me a few things. How to fight, how to prioritize, how to sacrifice and who to do it for, how to love and who to love.
One day I will tell the full story on the big screen
In the meantime y’all be blessed! Cheers to my second Birthday!!! #101509 #MyStory #mytruth #whyiamthewayiam
