I pulled a lot of Jessie’s tweets starting back from December 4 until now. She can’t move her neck, she’s at her mother’s house and stays inside a lot, and she can’t remember a lot of things from the past. She also had to relearn how to use a computer keyboard again. She says her neurologist explained to her why she was having such bad social anxiety. He says her brain injuries cause anxiety, psychosis, and depression. The other driver’s insurance is covering a lot of the medical bills but there’s a lot Jessie herself has to end up paying. She thanks everyone for their donations & gifts and how she’s able to live off of the money people have donated. She also reveals she wasn’t wearing a seat belt but how not wearing one saved her.
Her tweets are after the jump. They start on December 4 up until now.
Almost time for my Neurologist appointment.. Wish me luck!! 🙂
Just got done seeing the Neurologist. Did an MRI scan which was interesting. Told I won’t b fully healed for a year becuz of brain injuries.
I guess working anytime soon is out of the question. I seriously don’t know what I’m going to do. :*(
I seriously want to cry. My life plans might change on me. This is horrible to find out. :*(
Possibly having ANOTHER delay on my move to LA, and stuck in Buffalo for who knows how long. This depresses me. 😦
I wasn’t aware how bad my injuries actually were.. Sorry my tweets are so depressing today. I’m really upset..
Thank you EVERYONE for your amazing tweets. It’s making me smile!! I love you all. ❤
If your healthy and super active, plz don't take it for granted. You have no idea how grateful you should be. Be super thankful every day.
I think I'm going to force myself to get all better so I can move just like I had expected. I am very determined.
I seriously don't know what I would do without my Mom or little sister. They've been absolutely amazing to me for the past month. 🙂
I'm currently knitting a 100 stitch width blanket and *kind of* making progress on it. I'll post a photo when I knit more! 🙂
What sucks about having brain damage, is not knowing how to correct a bad stitch. I feel like 4yrs of knowing how to stitch r worth nothing.
Today I go to my Physical Therapist. Hoping they try challenging me like they usually do. 🙂
It would awesome to get my balance back so I can wear stilettos again. Hmmmm..
I absolutely love taking the speech therapy at my pt appointment. It challenges my brain. I'm at a high level already. Pretty excited. 🙂
It's funny to me that some really close *friend* unfollowed me. Because she was tired of me *milking something for more than it's worth* LOL
Pretty excited that me dying has demolished my lactose problems. Now it's time for me to demolish this icecream. 🙂
I'm getting a Cranial Doppler in an hour. They are hopefully going to fix my double vision. Not seeing straight is kinda getting old. 🙂
Having a conversation with my mom and realizing how bad my memory really is. Remembering details is a bit difficult..
I just want to play with the giant scar across my entire throat. Thankfully it's not a scab because I would pick at it all day. 🙂
I have never seen so much Hello Kitty stuff in my life. I currently own like 40 HK items. You guys are the best! 🙂
Tomorrow I'm going to help my sister make Christmas cookies all day. I haven't done this in over a decade. I'm pretty excited. 🙂
It's reeeally hard to attempt to watch movies, when I have developed an extreme short attention span from my brain injuries..
Tomorrow I'm going to try walking in heels for a little bit. I wonder how many times I'll faceplant. Hopefully I'll have some balance!! 🙂
I really want to thank everyone who @replies me. And yes I read every single one! I would lose my mind from intense boredom w/o you all. 🙂
I'm exhausted from my physical therapy I had today. Definitely worked my mind and upper body. I'm actually pretty stoked they challenge me. 🙂
Ok so putting on eyeliner is difficult. My eyes twitch super bad every time I put liner on my lid. After 25 minutes I finally applied it! 🙂
I think not having much strength in my arms helped a lot to not hurt. But not having many endorphins made certain areas make me want to cry.
@PKHealy yeah I wasn't really able to put things together until a couple weeks ago. I actually had someone updating for me because of memory
@PKHealy I wasn't even able to figure out how to use a keyboard. I don't know if I'm down to meet new people. Plus I'm 8hrs from nyc. 🙂
I need close friends to call me and remind me of good times we've shared. Recent ones I remember. Most things over a year ago I don't.
One of these days I'm going to relearn how to cook again. Eating cereal and things I microwave is not doing it for me anymore.
I'm just so bored all the time. All I do all day is sick on the couch watching tv. I need to attempt being active again!
My Physical Therapist told me which types of machines I'm safe to use at the gym. Yay!! 🙂
Looking at my medical bills. The amount of money they are in total, is like what I make in 2 and a half years. Haha awesome.
Oh whoops there's more. It's more like 3 and a half years of pay. Awesome.
Today I'm going to bleach my roots for the first time in a month and a half. This should be very interesting. 🙂
I'm trying to make myself do all the stuff I did before my accident. All the tasks I found to b "normal". The ones I'm physically able to do
@Tristin_AvasDad yeah I have 2 lawyers and my mom. Thanks for the heads up. Insurance is trying to be difficult already.
All I've eaten for 3 weeks is Life Cereal w/vanilla soy milk, and Morning Star Farms microwaveable meals. That's healthy right?
Listen guys, I'm not okay enough to actually cook. I have to use the microwave to heat anything up. Stop being snobs! 😛
Tomorrow I'm going to the gym to help myself heal better. I haven't been to a gym in like 3 months. Goodnight. 🙂
I need a hobby that I'm able to do which involves leaving this apartment. Maybe I can have a life again once I move to LA. 3 more weeks!!
@jenna_valentine on man that sucks! I was in the hospital for 2 weeks. I don't have insurance, but I'm covered by the driver's car insurance
@jenna_valentine they're supposed to. but who knows how much everything might add up to. plus I can't work for almost a year. sucks so bad.
@jenna_valentine it's actually what I'm living off of. I really really appreciate all the work people put in for little old me. 🙂
@ipierce89 I don't even have sex. That's my birth control hahah
@ipierce89 in general. But especially now. Don't even know when I'll have sex again. Ughhh
@ipierce89 I can't really move my neck or it's going to be kinda serious. So I'm fucked..
My mom just showed me a picture of the car I was in that got hit. Thank goodness I wasn't strapped in or I would have broken bones. Fuck..
@eskoandhisblob I think not having a seat belt on actually saved my life.
My neurologist explained to me y I'm having such bad social anxiety. He told me my brain injuries cause anxiety, psychosis, and depression.
@IronHyde187 i can get past it. i don't want to take any drugs for anything. no matter what.
I would however like my old personality back. I feel like I lost it. Sorry if I'm not as interesting as I use to be. I'm trying to change!
