Severe Head Injury

Hi, I'm Rocky,
I'm a Fifty Four year old single man.

In April of 2005 I was working and a drill got away from me and the handle of the drill hit me on the left side of my head. They figured it was turning at Thirty Five Hundred RPM at impact. It cracked my scull, slammed my brain into the right side of the scull, doing damage to the right side of my brain. I now deal with EXTREME Migraine headaches, seizures, dizziness and sometime sick stomach from all the pain. I had to take early retirement.

I'm a Journeyman Electrician and I Loved my job. I was working for the best company I had ever worked for in my life. This was a total heartbreak. I was a bucket truck operator and it was not unusual for me to be thirty six feet in the air working on a parking lot light fixture. Now I can't even go up on a ladder without getting dizzy and sometimes falling down from being so dizzy. I HATE IT. I went through a divorce, lost my beautiful four bedroom home and now I live in a two bedroom mobile home that doesn't come close tho the home I had.

I hate this and wish it would ALL just go away. I guess I can thank God I'm still alive.
