I don't know if my story is unique or not.
I took a fall off my back porch, back in
July 2009, this resulted in
severe head trauma (closed head injury, concussion), severe neck trauma (possible broken neck), a dislocated left thumb, and a severe chest contusion.
I was in the in the hospital for 4 days, evaluated and sent home, with a neck brace, left hand in a brace, and a walker.
I could barely speak, had little memory (short term or long term), couldn't walk more than a step or two, etc.
