There is Always a Silver Lining
When a tragedy strikes, people always try and comfort
you by telling you there is always a silver lining as
something good will always come out of it and that everything
will be okay. We never feel this way until after what
they say become a fact. Well for me, the silver lining
has been revealed.
I was twenty-one (now twenty-two) years old and a party
girl going nowhere in life. I drank litres of vodka every
night. I lived for the next drink, party and bar. Tragedy
struck me on 18th May 2009. I was driving on my way to
work and ended up crashing into a rear of a utility van
that had stopped and was turning left into the highway.
I was travelling at about sixty miles per hour and did
not even try to stop. I also had no seat belts on. (I
do not remember about the accident at all and I was told
about these details after the accident.)

I was rushed to the hospital. I had broken my left ankle
in three places, severed the tendons under both knee caps,
broken my right hip socket completely off, cracked eight
ribs and had a major cut on my forehead. I was in the
intensive care unit for four days and in a regular room
for five more days. I was told I would be in a wheelchair
for three months and would need a walker to help me walk.
It would take me a year to recover. During this time,
it seemed as if my life was only going to change for the
What I didn't realize was that my life was in fact about
to change but for the better. I am a gamer and have been
a part of a gaming website for a little over a year. A
fellow gamer friend contacted me to check out on me. He
was very concerned and that made me very happy. He sent
me a care package which consists of gaming items when
I got home from the hospital. He held game nights for
my favorite games.

We started to talk more often. I mean we had known each
another for a long time but we had never thought that
we would become a couple. Yet, we did. We talked on the
phone for eight to twelve hours a day for three months.
Once I was out of my wheelchair, I flew to see him. He
has been my saving grace. I am no longer on the path to
destruction and alcoholism. I am the happiest I have ever
been even after my tragic accident. He has been here for
me through everything. He has helped me triumph over my
pain, stress and injuries.
You never know what a horrible incident can bring you.
Just know that no matter how bad a situation may seem,
there is a reason it happened and you should always keep
your head held high no matter how bad the situation seems
to be. You never know when the silver lining will be revealed.
