That fall down the stairs cost you an arm and a leg but only for a few months as it was wrapped up– trapped, in a cast. Looking in the mirror, you might have a scar on your arm or leg once the cast is taken off.
Perhaps, you really did lose your arm or your leg, and know only a tingling, numbing sensation remains of what is often called a ghost limb. It can be hard to get used to what is gone, but one day, you do. You start telling your story to people who ask you about what happened in a calm, reassuring voice, and you are proud of yourself for not only surviving your accident, but living and being able to talk about it.
Personal injury comes with pain– the initial shock, the hard-to-stop tears, and the disbelief. How could this have happened to me? However, you get through it, and you get through it because of family and friends, because of doctors and personal injury lawyers.
You’ll never be your old self again, but isn’t that the same of everyone? Learning to adjust and adapt to your new life requires a lot of inner strength and belief in yourself with support from the people and society around you.
In addition, the souvenirs of personal injury aren’t just faded casts, faint scars, and ghost limbs. They are true, tangible testaments to the human capacity to survive and live life courageously despite the pitfalls, accidents, and challenges that come our way.
