Question of the Week
How much would you accept for Omar Bogle?
Wrawbs: I Will Walk Again
By: Marc Reed
BASICALLY, to cut a massively long story short for the first time in my life I am not afraid to admit that I suffer from depression, though depression didn't make me fall - it was slipping on the ice.
The question I have most been asked was how much did it hurt. The answer to that was I can't remember but the most painful experience of my life was the little bit after I fell, dragging myself across the railway line with the injuries I had.
From top to bottom, two broken vertebrae, two broken thighs, open fracture to both bones in my lower leg and a shattered right ankle.
When I rung for help I was rushed to Scunthope General. I don't really remember a lot of the first few days but one thing that stuck in my mind is when my dad got there, he asked the doctor if I would walk again. "Sorry Mr Reed, it's impossible to say at this point but his injuries suggest not", was the answer.
It must be the first time I have seen my dad almost in tears, he turned round to me and said: "Well if that doctor can't get you on your feet again, we will find one that can". I knew then I could beat this because my dad is on my side, and he has been my rock throughout the last six to seven weeks, I don't know what I would have done if I didn't have him.
From Scunthorpe I was taken to Hull Royal where I had 20 hours of operations over 2 days. Hull is where I have spent most of this and also where I haven't picked up the lingo, don't let anyone tell you any different. I would have gone out of my head if it was not for the Fishy members sending me jokes, also for the goal alerts.
Another person I would like to thank is cleemariner1 who came over to visit me numerous times and effectively kept my chin up.
I would just like to thank everyone on here who has texted me asked about me or paid any attention to what was going on because I have needed the pep up so to speak.
I think "You may not walk again" and "If worst comes to worst you may lose your leg" are amongst the hardest things you may ever have to hear but I have, and I will tell you now I will walk again because I know I can and I believe in myself, If you don t believe in yourself why should anyone else believe in you?
