Just wanted everyone to know that my niece is doing better. They are moving her to rehab, and although she still has at least a year ahead of her, it appears that she is gonna make it. Thank you all for your support - it really meant a lot to me. FYI, she is also in therapy every day with psych services to try to work through her problems that caused her to attempt suicide again.

yall are great - thanks so much for all your kind words. We all do love her fiercely, and although we are equally mad at her right now for almost killing herself, our love and fear for her have certainly won out. I just hope that she can come up with other coping skills when she gets angry and can learn to control her impulsiveness.

I went to my own psychiatrist and upped my medication because of the additional stress. My brother and I are both having a great deal of problems with flashbacks and nightmares. His of course have to do with being there when the accident took place and mine from almost losing her and seeing how badly hurt she was. We are all looking to each other and if necessary additional professional support to get the family through as well.

Take care, everyone.

Hi Everyone

Just wanted to let you know that they discharged my niece to rehab. Although it will take about a year for her to walk again, the good news is that they think that she will. Long road ahead, but we are all happy about her progress. Take care, everybody.
