The Accident

By Pamela G Stewart


(Page 1 of 2)

As I write this, I feel very fortunate to have survived the accident.  But I can't help wondering why my doctor, family caregiver, and friends hadn't been more adamant in expressing their concerns about my driving.  I would've been angry and resentful, but I now realize that I was a hazard to myself and others.

Pictures of the accident are available at the following publicly accessible link:  http://photos.aetnahhl.org/default.aspx?aid=218

 


Pamela G Stewart is living with chronic progressive multiple sclerosis. Although she is cared for during the day by a CNA, her primary care is provided by a family caregiver. She told us that she has no complaints about the help she is receiving but believes the lessons learned from her experience would have been helpful to her and to all caregivers. She believes it would be especially helpful for those caring for the elderly.
