As a mother now i am very worried when walking with my 8 month old, crossing the road and just being around moving cars.

When i was 5 i was playing in the local park with my older brother and mother. my brother was not playing with me and as a child i was very upset and i was daddy’s girl so i started running to our house, as i crossed the road my mother ran screaming after me but i was to fast, and went on the road.

A car came rushing down and struck me i fell to the ground and hit my head. After a long time in hospital i came home, well and ready to start school.

To this day i am so happy and blessed i survived that ordeal. i have lived with damaged nerves in the right side of my face and some hearing loss but other then that i am healthy happy and i now have a beautiful baby boy.

I sometimes cant shake that fear or roads. i drive a car it took a long time to get over that fear. I believe that moment made me a stronger person.

When i was in school i was bullied and teased i grew up being strong and didn’t care what people where saying, so my story goes after something so bad came good made me a strong caring person.

God Bless :)

  • Out of something bad, came something very good.


  • Your mother must have been so frightened – every mother’s nightmare! It’s no wonder you’re scared sometimes. I’m sure you’ll cope, you seem to have been very strong so far.


  • I think you have a very good reason for the feeling you have about roads. It has made you more aware than most people of the need to be careful and alert. You had strength to persevere with driving and at those times when the fear might come to your mind, remember you are taking every precaution with the safety of your baby. You have done so well!


  • I can imagine it would be hard to go near roads. I would suggest working with a professional it may help.


  • Sorry that this happened to you but thank you for sharing- wish you could share this with some kids (safety talk at school or daycare) even if only 1 child listens, it could save a life.
