Deb and I spent most of the time out at Eagle Lake RV Resort with Bam Bam and Jade since the accident on May 30th and would come in about every 3 days or so to check on our bearded dragon Dino. Now with me starting Physio I will be able check on Dino on the days I have Physio.
Well Physio as been going well so far. It is looking like I maybe off work until the New Year, but I have to take it one day at a time. It is not going to be a quick fix for sure. At this point I can barely lift my right arm. My hope is with time I will be back to my old self. I have a couple of other things I will need to over come. I also have a concussion and possibly PTSD. The Physiotherapist will also be working with me to help to resolve the concussion issue.
Regarding the possibility of PTSD, I may need to go to counseling/psychotherapy once it is confirmed that I have PTSD. I seem to be showing some of the signs, Reliving – Flashbacks and nightmares of the accident and avoiding – Avoiding people and places. Before we started camping a few years ago I was a bit of an introvert, but the camping brought me out of that and pre- accident I was more of an extrovert. After the accident I have gone back to be more of an introvert again. Other signs are Excessive arousal – Increased alertness, anger, irritability, difficulty sleeping or concentrating. Negative thoughts or feelings such as guilt.
You may ask why I would feel guilty here are few of the reasons.
- I did not go to the Wedding with Deb like she wanted instead I chose to go for a Motorcycle Ride with some of our friends at the campground.
- I had a bad feeling about the ride that morning (I should have listened to my Gut)
- How the accident impacted Deb and our camping Family.
Deb has been a real trooper helping me thru this time in my life. I am not sure what would have come of me if it was not for her she as been my rock. Along with all the support from our camping family. They all had their own issues going on with Covid-19 this year, but they still managed to provide us with their support.
