It has ruined my life since the accident I can't do anything I am disabled and I can't work I get disability because it took everything away from me. We lost our home because of this. I had SI joint fusion surgery that my attorney sent me to and now I have a loose screw that has to be fixed and the surgery didn't help anyway. I am just tired of being miserable and having no life with my husband.
