I left in my Highway Transport Truck on a run to the west coast, with my 9 drops starting in Montreal, ending in Huntington Beach CA.

The biggest part of that "Run" would happen 51days later headding home from Houstan on Sept 14th.

It would ultimatly see me in a body cast, fighting for my life, and have to relive the horror of what happened and the needless loss of life.

Although ruled suiscide by the other driver, and not my fault, it makes it no eaiser to live with, and for some reason nearing the 10yr anniversery of something like this, it's really getting to me this year.

As hard as it is to remember that night, because to do so makes me take a journey down a path of my life I never want to think about, something VERY positive came out of it.
Something that changed my life, and made me actually want to start living again.

An act of kindness by a government official, not only saw me walk out of that hospital again after being pronounced dead at the accident, not to mention kept out of jail,
But I entered into rehab.

Gonna be a mighty weird 51 days for me :(

Is this one of those "choose your own adventure" books?

I'm sorry this didn't make the This Day in History thread.

Seriously, glad you're in a better place in your life now.

I'm going to assume that the following things happened:

1. You were on drugs at the time.
2. There was an accident involving your rig and another car.
3. Said driver of car wanted to commit suicide....so he ran head on into your truck.
4. ????
5. Profit?

OH, glad you're in a better place these days. You've got the tools for working through the strong feelings being stirred up by this anniversary. It won't be easy, but you've gone through more difficult times. Don't forget to seek support if you need it.

This year
I was in /Hospital re-hab when I learned about the planet, wrote my stories in the HOF, and figured out what wrod perfect/spell check was :)
(Man some of them stories are painfull to read through teh bad grammer :banghead:
But the hunt and peck order I typed as the only thing I could mover for weeks was my right hand, and 2 left hand fingers.
Took me forever to type, but passed the time. I wass soo looped on pain meds, there were times I didn't know if I was writing thoses stories, or still on the road

It must be a hard time right now, embrace the person you have become and let the old O-H rest in peace.

We are certainly thrilled to have you around!!
