Your title to your post:
It could have been worse?????????????????
I've edited this post so as not to cause harm or offense as I took personally to heart what was said instead of realising it was only a passing comment.

national association of bikers with a Disability.
They are a biking charity that are amazing
Helped me get my licence back after loosing my left leg. I only needed advice but they offer other help too.
Not too expensive to join & there is also an online forum.
My advice for what it's worth, get yourself better physically first be patient and then worry about riding again, I'm sure you will but healing is a process that takes time.
And finally good luck!

Thanks for the heads up triple strength, certainly words of wisdom and hope. Never heard of them but am looking into it now.
The mood swings and anger I feel are not me, or before the accident I should say were never me.
I hate confrontation and would normally run at the sound or sight of anything wrong or agressive.
Yet I find myself getting angry at things which is just wrong.

I feel so bad for the stuff you've been going through. I came out of my little accident last week probably better than when I went in and then I just read your story. Ouch! Thoughts are with you!

The "Earth" without "art" is just... "Eh"

You've been going and are going through massive changes, the head on collision started a chain of events completely out of your control.
I personally would be very worried if you weren't angry.
But anger gives us energy, you've lost a huge amount, physically, and also career and financial. You are obviously not a quitter so it's about using the system to fight back.
Have you claimed DLA you've paid tax for years so why not?
It sounds like you would qualify.
I have to at times use a wheelchair and I hate it, but it allows me to work and socialise, use what's available to you and get well again.
One day hopefully we'll meet out there on the road on our bikes:-)

As a lot of people on here have said, i'm well on the mend.
The whole debacle with the insurance is what is really getting to me as the financial strain is taking it's toll.
I've lost a lot and am in serious poverty. Bailliffs on my doorstep and everyone starting court proceedings against me for stupid bits of money that at present I don't have.
Humans are so cruel at times and as i'm seeing daily now are evil to the core in a lot of situations and actually are very sick and twisted.

Apology accepted.
I should not have maybe taken it so hard but at present I only want to believe all humans are nice towards victims of accidents and near death experiences.
Just be more thoughtful of how you word things. I am suffering enough as it is.

Stealth,

just read the whole thing, amazing you're doing so well. Fair play to you, and its great you were able to personally say thanks to those who helped.

I hope you get the justice you deserve and get the bike you're after
