Rory is my nephew. We thought we had lost him. His recovery can be attributed to his perseverance and determination. He has grown a lot through the experience as well. Couldn’t be more proud of him. Love you, Rory!

He admits he was obnoxious. Typical rude person you’ll meet. Thanks for admitting it. I’ll reserve my sympathy for survivors that deserve it.

The constant headaches. Not many understand or are willing to help.

I don't know who needs to hear this but stop saving all your money, invest some of it if you really want financial freedom .. says:

Invisible injuries are horrible. All the weakness we hide that no one can see are the injuries and symptoms that slowly drive you crazy

Valda Marie Legault says:

Wonderful story! Speaking from personal experience, the laws need to change as Insurance companies have too much power, they deny treatments for this type of injuries and one has to fight them when they are least capable!
