When it happens, everything is usually going reasonably well. Sure, you’ve got some problems—who doesn’t?—but nothing you can’t handle. Work is busy, but you’re pretty sure you’re in line for a promotion next year. Your kid is applying to some good colleges. The doctor gave you a clean bill of health at your checkup last month. And tomorrow night, you’re looking forward to — — —
The inattentive driver in the SUV wasn’t thinking about your plans for tomorrow night. He wasn’t thinking about your kid’s college applications. He wasn’t thinking about you at all. He didn’t even see you, because he was trying to answer the text message he received as he approached the red light at 43 miles per hour.
Just like that, your whole world has changed. You’re alive, thanks to your totaled vehicle’s airbags, but you’re unable to walk, turn your head, or see out of your right eye. You can speak, but a conversation of more than a few minutes leaves you exhausted and fumbling for your thoughts. You don’t even remember anything that happened for several weeks before the crash. Your daily schedule now consists of daytime television, punctuated by visits to your hospital bed from family, friends, and medical staff.
Unfortunately, the pace of life doesn’t slow or stop when you’ve been injured or otherwise sidelined from your normal routine. The world continues forging ahead. Bills keep coming. Decisions need to be made. Demands are still placed on you, whether or not you’re ready for them.
