Clari ((hugs)) Way back I worked for a while as a PA for a young woman who'd had an accident resulting in similar outcome - hit by a speeding police car whilst crossing the road - two weeks after her wedding. Apart from the physical disabilities she was left with the severe head injuries resulted in quite radical personality changes. So difficult for them both.
Also one of my dearest friends (first boyfriend) had a severe spinal injury as an adult - the progress he's made is remarkable but the devastation wreaked by a few minutes fun on a bouncy castle .................... so tragic.
My last job involved assisting in the assessment and arranging of support and respite for children and young people with severe disabilities and life-limiting conditions - the unthinking unkindness of adults no longer surprises me.
