Today was my 100th rehabilitation session. Improvement in the use and range of motion in my shoulder joint stopped progressing in October. Since then, it’s been sheer strength building.
And this is the moment where I ask everyone; please pay attention to the goddamn road. Your phone, stereo, video screen, whatever aren’t worth it. I don’t care how good at multitasking you think you are. You will eventually kill someone, or worse, leave them disabled for the rest of their life. Could you live with those consequences? I will never be able to walk away from this accident. Nearly every aspect of my life has changed because of what happened. From the apartment I live in to my love of swimming in the ocean to what foods I can eat.
The driver who hit me doesn’t seem to bothered. I’m sure she let her daddy wash my blood off the hood of her car, and picked up her live right where she left off while I was still in the emergency ward of the hospital that first week. Her only punishment was that she had to pay a fine to the police for causing an accident. But she’s still allowed to drive. But if she hasn’t learned anything from this, I hope that everyone else has. Watch the road, and if you hit someone don’t move their head or neck, call an ambulance. It’s the very minimum of human compassion. at Shizuoka-shi, Shizuoka, Japan
