Bmweerman's accident-3 years later-a note from Patti


Recommended Posts

It's been over 3 years since Cameron had his really bad accident. In the process of his healing, it became apparent that I need some healing, as well.


So, with encouragement from several people, including my therapist, I have embarked on a personal journey to review what happened, to make sense of it. I'm working on a book about it, from my perspective.


In reviewing the posts I made on this forum and all the supportive comments, I can't imagine a better group of friends for either of us to have. I just wanted you to know that every word still means as much to me today.


I'm currently about 7 chapters into what will probably end up being 20+. I'll definitely let you know when I finish.


Thank you so much, again!

Accidents have many victims who must learn to deal with a new reality.

The person in the accident, the "other party" if there is one, the family and friends of both, the authorities who create boundaries to operate in, and all the well meaning people who contribute their input, particularly wrt mc accidents.

Processing it all can be hard.

Good luck with book.

I'm sure it will be an interesting read.

Best wishes.

Thank you, Tim! I saw your comments often. Pulling it all out and taking a really good look at it is an interesting, if not incredibly emotional, undertaking. The book is called "The Lines" and I'm plugging along with it. It takes so much out of me, that small bites are all I can handle per sitting. It is very good therapy!

It is really good to hear from you Patti, keep writing, and keep us informed.

Rally tough 'job', Patti, but very courageous. Good luck with the writing and more importantly, with keeping good memories alive !
