mental recovery

car crash, woman in underwear with surgery scar

‘At 20, I had a poo bag attached to me. I had my 3rd set of surgeries in a year. They removed several FEET of intestines.’: Car accident survivor shares recovery journey, ‘You can be you again, even if the ‘you’ is different’

“‘The moment I said, ‘I’m fine,’ the world got wobbly. ‘Ashtyn, can you hear me? We need to get her OUT of here.’ I was in the ICU for 6 days and then released back into the care of my mom. I thought this was the end of it. It wasn’t.”

‘That doctor ended up saving me twice in that hospital — first with a life-saving surgery, then again with a simple business card.’: After ectopic pregnancy, woman credits doctor with helping her ‘mental recovery’

“She handed me the business card and said, ‘I feel like you may need this.’ I started to talk, but the words couldn’t find a way out. I wanted to tell her I was fine and give the card back. Yet I knew, somewhere in my soul, I would need that card.”
