One Day At A Time (Shyanna's Story) Part One

Rated "G" by the Author.

I turned seventeen in the hospital and many of my friends moved on while I was in the hospital, but my true friends have stayed and I am grateful for that. I am grateful for so many wonderful things in my life. I feel very blessed to be alive, and I know that I am going to get through this one day at a time!

 

 

My life is different, yet it's the same, you see just a few months ago a freak accident left me paralyzed, but I am okay.  I was climbing up the tree trying to rescue one of my cats, when the branch collapsed and I fell to the ground with a loud thud, I hit the ground hard, thankfully I had been quick enough to make sure that my head did not hit that ground, but I landed on my back and did some serious damage.  In that instant I knew I was paralyzed, I felt nothing below the waist, and a pain above the point of injury, unlike anything I had ever felt.

I spent six long and gruelling weeks in the hospital, and I am still going through therapy, physical and therapy to come to terms with the accident.  None of it was easy, but I made it and I am here to tell my story.  I know that my life has changed in some ways and that this accident, or whatever you want to call it has changed me in some ways, but it hasn't changed my heart and my soul.  I am happy to be the person I am and though I am not happy about what happened to me I do accept it, I have accepted it, and I am grateful for that.

I turned seventeen in the hospital and many of my friends moved on while I was in the hospital, but my true friends have stayed and I am grateful for that.  I am grateful for so many wonderful things in my life.  I feel very blessed to be alive, and I know that I am going to get through this one day at a time!

I have learned that all we can do is live life one day at a time and not focus on the negative.  If we get wrapped up in the negative that's all we are ever going to see, and then we will feed on that, and I think that's not something we should be doing, what I think we should be doing is taking the tough times one day at a time and slowly but surely get past them!

God Bless

Shyanna~
