Crashed my car at speed into a pole nearly died compound humerous fracture, multiple ribs broken. Big story

It’s been a while since I updated I haven’t been doing that well I guess. I was doing ok but I was up and down on the drugs and booze. I guess I had too much and ended up crashing into a pole driver side at speed. I don’t know why or what I was doing. I had to be cut from the car by emergency services I was bleeding out really badly from my arm which had a compound humerus fracture exiting on the inner bicep. As well as a few badly broken ribs.

It was a complete mess and I was sent straight to emergency for surgery.

I couldn’t believe what I had done to myself and the risk that I put others in.

This has really been a big wake up call. I went on a bit of a bender after hospital I guess I was in shock but since I woke up from that bender I’ve been very strict on my new approach to not drinking or taking heavy drugs under any circumstance is except for my pain relief. f

or me… Please think of me before you decide to do anything stupid behind the wheel. !

there’s a lot more to the story and there’s a lot more photos and videos but I’m in a lot of pain at the moment so that’s all I can put it up at the moment. Not very interesting but there’s a whole lot going inside that wound. 7 screws on a plate that’s holding everything together.

So glad you are okay. What’s done is done man. There will be some music to face but you’re alive and breathing and will get through a better person because this is it. You’re done now. Your experience and wisdom will help others.

I am really, really happy you’re okay.
I was not as lucky.
In April I was in a similar situation but I had a friend in the car who didn’t make it. It was the worst thing that has ever happened to me. Please, take that into consideration how close it could’ve been. Staying away from the booze will ensure something like this doesn’t ever happen again. Recovery is worth it.
Glad you’re here. :black_heart:

Thank you for asking. Obviously, when I see these types of things it’s a heavy reminder of what happened. But it’s a heavy reminder of why I don’t drink anymore. (110 days today). I really miss him. A lot. I wish I could go back.
