A new life of healing

In 1982 I was in a traffic accident, a head-on collision. When I was taken to the hospital, the doctor said I had a head injury and a disjointed ankle. I was in the hospital for four weeks.

After I was released, I still limped from the ankle injury, and had head pain that continued. Although I continued taking medication for the pain, it didn't really help. Consequently, the next year I traveled to England for specialized treatment. I met with a neurosurgeon in London, and after he examined me, he said I would never lead a normal life again. He told me that I would be on medication for the rest of my life because I had a contusion. According to his diagnosis, when I'd been in the accident, I'd hit my head in some way that had affected my brain.

I began a new course of treatment that he recommended. I took new medications for about two years. I couldn't sleep without the medication, and still the pain continued.
