Fallen tree accident!

About 10 years ago, a man sawed a 4 story tall tree down as I was walking nearby.
It landed on top of me and thought that was the end of me. It was simply
horrid of course as had to wait for the ambulance to get up to the wooded property. Then a neighbor had to be found to saw the giant limbs off of my upper body.

Lots of internal bleeding of course, and broken ribs. But, my life was spared.
The doctor said it was a miracle that I did not end up paralyzed for life, or dead.
Anyways, took some serious pain meds for only a couple of months so I could
function a bit. But, then I just stopped and only took plain aspirin.
To this day, that side of my body is in pain 24/7. I just ignore it and do a little
physical therapy for the injured side every once in a while.
The only thing I take every couple of days for the injury is bayer aspirin, and
Glucosamine with Chondroiten (which helps with the rib ache).
It changed my life completely with the serious pain issues daily. I am just glad to be alive.
