"For a moment, I was fine. At least, I thought I was fine. I felt okay, took a deep breath, and completely fell apart. Panic, anger, and self-pity coursed through my veins, and I started bawling.
But then, I had an idea. I decided to write about my broken neck experience and share any thoughts or tips I discovered along the way."
