In the first few days after a Kansas City motorcycle crash, you may feel like you’ve lost everything. As your doctors describe your specific injuries, your treatment plan, and your prognosis, the life that you enjoyed just a few days ago may seem to be slipping further and further away. Whether you are going to be in the hospital for a while, unable to return to work anytime soon, and/or suffering from a permanent and serious injury, your life has suddenly changed forever.
I was recently hurt in an Independence motorcycle accident. I’ve seen my doctor and I’m not sure what else to do. I can’t go to work, I’m in a lot of pain, and I’m scared about the future. What do you suggest that I do?
It Is What You Do Next That Matters Most
You may grieve for the things that you once enjoyed, but can no longer do. This is normal and may be an important part of your recovery. However, as you grieve you face an important choice. You can either choose to be ruined by what has happened or you can choose to change your future. You can decide that you are going to set new goals for yourself and plan a new future. For example, you may:
- Think about modifying your current home or moving to a more accessible home that will provide you with some more independence given your physical injuries.
- Change your career path and think of new things that you can do even though you are injured.
Talk to your family, mourn for what’s been lost and get excited about what is still possible.
