I went into the windshield forehead first.Doctors pulled glass out of my eye sockets over 2inches long that penitrated my brain.I have lived with numerous problems from that wreck for over 25yrs..the problems have been progressive over the years.It has progressed so much now that I cant hold a job anymore.Memory loss,seeing splotches,anger,depression,ect… What do you do now?
After ten strokes and 4tias and being paralyzed body, face and mind and losing my speech, I reached out for the Lord and all the while, He was carrying me!
