I was at a friends party, I have had a few drinks, My boyfriend and I were fighting so I wanted to go home, I hadn't realize he was drunk. So we got in the car, and he was driving really fast, something had told me to put my seatbelt on, so i did. I blacked out, and I woke up in the car, it was all smashed up. My boyfriend wasn't in the car, he was out in the road somewhere. We didn't hit anyone, we hit a boulder, the car flipped over ffive times. I started screaming "what happened?" over and over again. And my boyfriend just kept screaming i'm sorry i'm sorry. I couldn't move, but i tried to search around the car as best as i could to find my phone. I couldnt find it. I thought forsure i was going to die. I started screaming HELP at the top of my lungs, finally a car seen us and called 911. If I wouldn't have put my seatbelt on i would of died. I was in the hospital for two months. I was in the icu. My boyfriend was only in the hospital 4 days. I broke multiple bones. He wasn't hurt as bad as i was. It's been four months since the accident. I'm still re learning how to walk, i'm in a wheelchair. I have to go too therapy, doctors appts and counseling. It was the worse thing i have ever been through, it still haunts me to this day. I never thought this could happen to me but it did. Everybody really needs to think twice about drinking and driving. It can change yours and your loved ones lifes forever. I really hope my story changes your state of mind. I'm so lucky and thankful i am still alive.
