Okay Guys....I Need Your Help, Please.

I got in a relly bad accident last night that left me with a little memory loss....no one knows exactly what happened, but apparently I lost consciousness (no alchohol/drugs involved, more likely an autism related petit mal).

I guess a bystander dragged me out of the street (I was on my way to my parked car, last I remember).

I am in pretty bad shape, and will be unable to work for awhile. I need to pay bills, however, so I'm selling any and all of my bike stuff to make ends meet while I heal.

I will post pics latr, I can barely type as it is...then links to the "For Sale" section.

Sorry if I come off as a shill to some of you that don't know me, but I have never reached out like this before now. I just need some support right now...


Pics/Links to come....thanks for bothering to read this.

Later,

James


Me before:



Me now:



I hopefully have no fractures...we'll see what the x-rays say. I eat with a straw and type with one hand... basically I'm ****ed.

I work in the music industry, so this will be a very tough transition for me as the next few weeks I will be layed up and healing.

That's horrible! Get yourself to a hospital and have yourself checked out, if you haven't already done so!

We'll be here to support you an any way we can.

I agree with Taerom. Looks like you have some pretty massive swelling. Swelling anywhere on the head is dangerous because of the close proximity to the brain.

WTF? I don't understand. Did you pass out and someone beat you? Did you call the cops?

Anyways, get well soon. My thoughts and well wishes are with you.

Holy hell, Serendipper... sorry to hear about all this.

A trip to the hospital is definitely in order. A blow to the head with loss of consciousness deserves an evaluation, not to mention the face.

Heal up fast, and best of luck to you.

Sorry to hear about your accident, 'Dipper. As others have said, see a doc and I hope you heal up soon. I wouldn't go making any decisions on your ability to work or selling things just yet, it's too soon afterward, your mind is full of worry and pain, and you don't know all the facts and your options yet. Hang loose for a bit and let your mind and events become a bit more clear before going into panic mode. But whatever you gotta do, we're all here to support you in any way we can.

Do not know where to start.

First, please go get checked out to make sure that everything is okay.

Second please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers brother. I will be lifting you up to the Lord for strength and healing.

So sorry to hear about your seizure and subsequent accident. Hold off as long as you can before you go selling off things that you may regret selling later.

I know the red star santa gifted quite a few people with red stars. Do you have paypal or a PO Box that you could post details for? I am sure that more than a few Foo Santas would offer to contribute and not want anything in return.

Get Well Brother,

Jeff Sharrock

chipcom has a lot of insight for a blond bombshell centerfold. Don't rush to anything other than the doctor's. I doubt you need the money right here, right now, so take a few days to think it over and look at the big picture. Most importantly, see a medical professional, take it easy, and get well soon!
