Superman Has Something to Say

Having a brain injury is a very mesmerizing ordeal.  It completely conquers your entire life.  Please do not drink and drive.   Just call your mom or dad to pick you up.  Would they rather be picking out your coffin?  No.

One quick decision to drink and drive OR to ride with someone who has been drinking could very likely mean your death or quite possibly you could sustain devastating injuries.  No more video games.  No more hanging out with friends.  No more talking on the phone with anyone.  No more school football games.  You could be completely cut off from the rest of the world.  Sure you can recover, maybe better than before.  But it's a very long and arduous process with no guarantees. 

This may sound harsh but this is my current reality.  And it's all because I made the choice, after a night of partying, to ride with someone who had been drinking. 

Take it from me:  your entire life can alter from its present course to a drastic and highly difficult one.  Nothing will ever be the same.  NOTHING.  If you wish to play the odds that dramatically, then by all means knock yourself out although I truly hope you don't.
