How's the 2020 going for you so far?

I had a pretty decent year except for the first week of September where I got hit by a drunk driver ( I was on a bicycle, he was behind a wheel). I got one spinal ring crushed on a spot, pelvic bone was smashed as well and had a ton of internal bleeding. That all happened on September 12 (dude had 1.7 of promiles of alcohol in his blood btw). Good news is that I can feel my legs and I'll be able yo walk eventually. But it's a long road til I get there.
On a plus side, once I be able to sit straight, I'll have a huge backlog of AAA games to play and enjoy. Cheers!

That's rough. Having to bear the consequences of someone else's actions. >_<'. Your story of getting hit in the back reminded me of a friend of my brother's that was used to do Tae Kwon Do. He was extremely athletic and could even perform backflips. One day, he got rear-ended and got a permanent neck brace, so he just had to start over his life.

I'm glad you're still able to be positive through it all 👍 Too bad healing potions don't exist outside of games.

Damn dude, sorry to hear but glad that it sounds like you'll (eventually) make a full recovery.

Also: I think your story has just convinced reminded me that I need to get an indoor exercise "bike" instead of jogging / riding a bike outside... (tbh i've always had a fear of this kind of thing. read an article a few years ago about a programmer that had a similar but much more fatal experience... and the stephen king jogging incident... yeah, i don't think i will be burning any calories near cars. and yes, i know i am paranoid.)

Man, that's terrible! I reckon the recovery process will be long and grueling. Hope you will hang in there and persevere.

This is probably not much, but know that all of us here are sending you positive vibes and best wishes. Rest well and tackle those backlogs when you can!

Damn, that's scary :( I just don't get what happens in brains of those irresponsible creatures that choose to drive under influence. "It'll be fine, it can't happen to me"? I hope your recovery will be speedy.

As for me, weirdly enough, this year has been relatively fine so far. No one has died, no serious illnesses in the family, my nephew and niece are both beautiful, healthy and develop at a frightening speed (my nephew even spoke his first word a couple of days ago, he called a crescent moon "banana")). More than that, I went back to school at 35, and that's pretty awesome, I'm finally doing something with my life.

Dear God! I get creeped out just reading about it! So sorry you had to suffer because of some idiot like that. You show great strength by writing about it in such a nonchalant way. Fight on, man!

I used to be surprised by people having so many bad experiences this year until I started having them too. Mostly due to my bad decision making, but corona played its part too. Also discovered back pain this year, so from 1st hand experience, I wish you all the best.

Well, thats an injury thatll take a year or two to heal... (dad had a similar bicycle accident, but ice on the streets was to blame)

On the bright side, at least you didn't get covid-19 while at the hospital,... right?

Well, I suppose if it weren't for bad luck you wouldn't have any luck at all. Nods wisely to himself. I think we both may have tapped into the same source of luck. All I was trying to do was pick up some Lucky Charms, lol.

Anyhoo, take care and get better, Xarabas.

Cheers!
