What really gets my blood boiling is people talking on mobile phones while driving. I am seeing this more and more like it is just common practice.
Have you people ever thought that by your lack of concentration just how much you can change peoples lives if you cause an accident.
I know first hand 5 years ago Hubby and I were driving along heading into the city when a female on a mobile did not stop at a stop sign and went straight through keeping in mind we were on a highway. Well the Ambos lost me 4 times in the back of there unit on the highway as they worked on me for 5hrs before I could be transported and was going to be airlifted if they could not get me stable on their last try and it has left both Hubby and I with permanent damage and health problems as well as I suffered really badly mentally with really bad PTSD and was equal to someone coming back from war.
I was left in a wheel chair for 2 years and a walking stick to this day if we have to go to the city other wise I hang on to Hubby. my short term memory is not the best I don’t sleep for days and when I do with medication the longest I have slept is 3 hrs. My kids and Grandkids had to see me swollen and black from my toes to my chin as well as all the lines I had in . I was this damaged due to the fact that I am short I went up and down through the seat belt as the doctor said it was equal to a child in the front seat at only 4ft 10 in in height.
Our lives have been turned up side down and is the best it will ever get. We are both in constant pain but I now only choose to take medication when it gets way to much for me. This happened just before my 41st birthday and I have been left that food and drink goes in one end and out both with in seconds. i was 89.9kg and could never loose weight due to PCOS and now fight to stay at 47kg as if I don’t what feels like spend my days non stop eating I drop really fast as I can loose an average of 3kg a night and my doctor panics every time I get under 40 kgs. My veins have shrunk so now they find it hard to get blood. I have undergone many ops but can’t be fixed. I was told by Hubby and the police when he took a phone interview many many months later that she was still on her mobile as she got out the car. All she got was a $75.00 fine and we got a life sentence. House work for me is nothing but pain and falling on the floor. Nothing is easy any more.
We were lucky as following us so I have been told were 2 RAAF medics that helped us until the Ambos got there. So 2 them I owe my life as when they got there I was unresponsive and from what Hubby told me they got me breathing. So all up 5 times I was in real danger of not being here today.
So please for the love of god next time your about to take or make that call or check your phone while driving just think first of what damage you could possibly make to someone else’s lives.
If telling you all this makes one person think twice well than it has done some good.
