In Dec of 2012 I was injured in a work place explosion that should have killed me at least 4 times. My outward injuries healed completely but on the inside I’m still trying to piece things back together. I have undergone back fusion, both shoulders repaired, and during all of this my appendix ruptured spilling gangrene and gastric fluids into my blood stream.
I have went back to school to get a BCS degree in software design. I feel blessed that I survived and have found people who brighten my days, but I still feel overwhelmed sometimes and can’t see a way out. My anxiety and PTSD have had field days due to the added stress of Covid-19.
