still affects me today...right now as I am looking at my screen and typing
It was May 2003, just a week or so before my 12th birthday.
I was playing outside with a couple of friends. I was standing behind a big bush and all of the sudden I felt a terribly sharp pain on my left eye.
What happened? One of my friends threw this massive chunk of gravel tile (still have it somewhere...it was huge) through the bush not knowing I was there.
The gravel tile had severely damaged my cornea and made a cut under my eye. Blood was pouring out of that cut in bucket loads, and I wore a white shirt making it even more dramatic. What followed were months in which I had to receive terrible eye-drops that could paralyze your face if you gave a drop too much and a lot of visits to the hospital.
As of today my cornea is still fucked up, it’s like a mountainous landscape leaving me with a vision of max 40% in my left eye.
Friend accidentaly threw gravel tile in my left eye>left eye is permanently damaged.
riding my bike, hit a horse trailer and cut my lip off, plastic surgery,36 stiches, and 5 years later you can't really notice that bad anymore
