Yes! Yes! And, Yes!
Besides getting hurt from racing/riding horses many times in my life, I was in a terrible car accident that left me almost completely broken in 1997. I was hit by speeding driver who was going 60 MPH in a 30MPH zone. When hit we both lost complete control of our vehicles. He crashed into me hard on the front left side. So hard that my wheel ended up in my engine compartment among other things totaling the car. The other driver's passenger, unfortunately, she ended up going through the windshield. She ended up the worst. The paramedics wrapped her up like a mummy before all involved were rushed to the hospital.
There was a terrible rain storm that night, so why someone would be speeding is beyond me. Later finding out there was illegal drugs found in the other vehicle. The other vehicle was found to be at fault after a lengthy investigation. I was in shock apparently, as I only remember bits and pieces. I remember waking up finding myself in the hospital. I was there for one week with head to toe injuries, multiply contusions, terrible seat belt injuries, a terrible neck sprain, couldn't walk, etc.. I felt like I was literally hit by a truck, every bone and muscle in my body ached. That was many years ago. I'm lucky I survived.
Also, another serious accident was in late 2019. The story; every Wednesday morning at the same time I leave the door ajar at my business for mr distributor who delivers many supplies needed to run a business to come in. This particular day he came earlier than normal, and coincidentally I was still behind the door. He used his full body weight with his truck style dolly filled with many packages to push the door open as usual. I suddenly got smashed in between the door and the wall. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time you could say! Luckily my body is bigger than my head, or my head would have been smashed. I say this because it's my way of thinking that things could have been much much worse. The delivery man was devastated to say the least. He couldn't apologize enough. He called 911. Anyway, the accident caused me to suffer two broken back ribs very close to my spine, which caused related Costochondritis, plus several intercostal muscle tears. All on the right back side. The Costochondritis is a condition I have that often flares up on me , as it did just recently. Anyway, I've had many broken ribs, and many injuries from falling off horseback, and they are no fun at all, but this being so close to the spine plus having the muscle tears in that same area, the pain was unbearable. The spasms were almost continuous, ever time I moved I had extreme pain. I went to the hospital, and my Dr put me on Prednisone for 5 days, which I had to stop taking due to the steroids making me deathly sick. It's no fun vomiting with broken back rib bones, and back muscle tears, ugh! My Dr prescribed me muscle relaxer to take at night/bedtime only, and Ibuprofen 800. He ended up prescribing a higher dose of Cyclobenzaprine HCL due to the pain. He wanted to prescribe me narcotic pain meds, however, I always refused them. It took me over 10 weeks to feel normal again. Similar treatment was needed recently.
Bottom line I've had many a down time in my life. I had to use many medical devices and equipment especially ones you mention. Yep! I could write a book, lady4u. Lol!
Let your life be driven with purpose!
