ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was in a hit and run while walking home on August 10th it will be two years coming up. I woke up in a ditch they hit me going 60 mph I flew 10 feet and into a 7 foot ditch I went unconscious on impact I had 6 torn tendons and a fracture to my knee I was bruised all over they said I would "heal" with time I "healed" but never "healed" everything just got worse not better I have severe pain 24/7 on my right side of my body from my head to my toes and no one can tell me why... since the accident I now have post concussion syndrome P.O.T.S Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome PTSD and I have type 1 narcolepsy and cataplexy I have tried many meds and none worked I can't be left alone and pretty much lost my freedom can't drive can't work ... I have almost drowned in the bath tub numerous times and have been found during sleep attacks almost jumping out my window... during cataplexy attacks when I laugh I fall down so I have to always be careful.. if Im stressed or upset I fall asleep suddenly... doctors can't tell me why my memories never came back why I can't remember things from hours ago or from yesterday or why I have a headache 24/7.. I do have a chronic pain disease which I had before the accident and what I feel is not this...I have seen doctor after doctor and have got no answers really.. and no help.. most doctors do not believe me even with proof are overwhelmed or just can't handle my illnesses... we keep looking for answers and help and end up back at square one with me feeling like I did the day I got hit... I shouldn't feel like I did the day I got hit that isn't okay... I should feel healed and healthy... not depressed and in unbearable pain ... and no one can tell me why... I can't go back to college I feel like I lost my life and don't know how to get it back... if writing this could possibley help it's worth a shot in my eyes... I'm 24 I can't be 24 because I'm alseep ,crying or in pain... no 24 year old should live life this way... I should be in college working having a life. Living is what I should be doing at my age but I'm not able to sadly... if someone reads this and is able to help then it was worth me sharing my story or me helping someone else relate 100% worth me opening up about it all.
