however, kids live your life.. enjoy it.. if you lock your self up in your room and never go out side fear of a accident.. well hell you did not live!! and not much better off than the crippled!! be safe.
I just read your story on Midian's wall. That is one hell of a story. It must have taken a lot of courage to get through all of that.
I had a motorcycle accident back in the spring. I collided head on with a car at about 60 mph (only 10 mph less that you were going) and yet I only broke 2 arms and had a little gash on my thigh (I know that still sounds bad, but compared to your injuries it's nothing).
And now I've recovered I've bought a new bike and ride it almost daily. My relatives think I'm crazy to keep on riding, but for me I'd rather ride my motorcycle and risk injury/death than not ride and have a boring life.
