car crashed into our motorbike 5 years ago, smashed leg, had 5 ring frame on for 3 years, in wheelchair 3 years, got bone infection and had 1" removed, severe nerve damage, chronic pain, got to have spinal cord stimulator implanted. The crash itself was horrendous, knew car was going to hit no matter what we did, and its true that your brain takes over - as car got closer, my leg went numb from knee down so when it actually hit i didnt feel it. got thrown 30 foot, helmet came off, very lucky no head injuries. Was in hosp for a month, 3 surgeries inc skin graft in first week. Still have chronic pain, on crutches, cant sleep, doped up on painkillers and nerve pain tablets. I broke both bones in my right leg, one in 4 places, the other in 3, sticking out at top and bottom. Not particularly nice accident.
