While walking across the street some 15 years ago, a car ran over me. It was your classic case of hit and run involving a pedestrian and a car: the car won. Many think that the hardest part of recovery is the physical aspect. In reality, the mental and emotional recovery is even harder.
I postponed my healing by getting stuck in needing to “make sense” of the accident. I was consumed by questions: Why me? Why now? Why hit me and leave me on a sunny Sunday afternoon? Trying to reconcile the questions took up all my time.
