It has been one month to the day since the accident.
It has been the hardest month of my life.
My mind, body, and spiritual being has been completely shaken by the loss of one of my best friend’s, Corey, and the current paralyzing of my legs. I say “current” because I am doing my damnedest to repair this condition through the therapy Craig Hospital offers, and also visualization, mediation, acupuncture, massage, and absolute optimism to still overcome what will be extremely difficult. As I struggle to improve, Corey often guides my thoughts. In addition, my friend, Stefan, who was also in the accident has offered unique perspective and words that only he can.
I want to thank everyone who have reached out by text, email, voicemail, and letter. I have not had the energy to reply but I want each of you to know that I have read and listened to your messages and deeply, deeply appreciate your kind words. Your words have made my days feel less uphill. And I often read your words again later when I need more levity.
Lastly, I want to thank and send my love to my partner, Lindsay, who has supported me everyday while I work hard to find my feet again.
And of course, my mom, who has always been there for me.
