The Road to Recovery

Some of may remember me and some wont. I have been a member of MotoHouston since 2006. In 2007 I was in a car accident that changed my life. I made a thread back in 2007 about my car accident and this is kind of an update to it. I am finally able to see the doctors I need to be seeing to get some improvements. One of my doctors recommended we pick up a project that will take time to finish so I started rebuilding a 1988 Mustang GT. The build thread for the car can be found here http://www.westsidemustangs.com/show...+Road+recovery.

One of my doctors recommended we start a GoFundMe page to share our story, so my wife decided to make one. We are not asking for donations, just asking people to like the page and share with friends so more people can read our story.

Thank You MotoHouston, ride safe.
Chris

I wish you a fast recovery and a big success with all your projects. I have always been a fan of the old classic mustangs. What you think of this Mustangs Dealer:

Seems like they rebuild them and sell them. How easy is to work on them?

Take care.

Thank you for the kind words!
I can't really say much about performance mustangs. My wife bought a 1989 mustang gt from them. They said it had a clear blue title and had 0 history of any accidents. We took the car in to have an alignment done and the guy showed us where performance mustangs had put body filler on a Crack that went up the entire inner fender in the engine bay. Then they painted over it to hide it. So I tend to stay away from anything with their name on it. Classic mustangs are my absolute favorite to work on, there is just so much room to do anything you want with it. My first car when I was 15 was a 1966 (the one in my avatar) when I got it, it was in pretty bad shape. It had a hole along the rear window that I could fit my hand in lol. My dad, my wife (girlfriend at the time ), and I did every bit of work on it, found a 306 from a 93 cobra and built it up from there. Other than the 66 I have built an 89GT, a 92LX, and now this 88GT. Something about fox body mustangs lol.

Looks like you have a challenging road ahead of you. Great you are at least functioning enough to communicate clearly. So what are the most difficult things to do, in you current state? Are you still blacking out? Can you do rigorous sports, or are you limited to performing slow exercises?

Performance Mustangs was a joke back in the days. It was the go-to-place to sell off stolen Mustang parts. They had some nice Mustangs, but they were mixed in with the lemon-stangs that were touched up to look like beasts. An old buddy bought one and found tons of hidden problems when he tore it down a few years later to build a track car... good thing it was going to be a track car and not a restore project.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Did you guys sue the guy who hit him? Seems like it would be a big payout!

Thank you for the kind words!
It's really hard to say what the hardest thing is. Probably seeing my bike sit and collect dust lol. In all seriousness tho the hardest part for me is the amount of anxiety I get and how quick. At first it didnt really bother me about not driving, then my kids started getting older and I realized I can't do things like take them to school, take the to the park or baseball games. The blackouts stopped being frequent, now they are very random which is a step forward. I can play any sport physically as long as I am careful not to hit my head again, but the OCD and anxiety I get from the disorders has left me almost house ridden. I have started seeing a very good OCD doctor that has been working with me on things like that so I'm praying it pays off. The other really hard thing I have noticed is losing my concentration really easy and getting confused easy. My speech and comprehension was affected minimal thank . The constant panic attacks are also dabillitating.

Unfortunately I agree on performance mustangs. I wish I could say they were a good dealer but I have heard only bad reviews.

The accident was my friends fault and he had no insurance. No matter how hard things were and still are for me I couldn't sue my friend. I wont put him in that situation. I know he didn't mean for all this to happen and i forgive him for it. My dad had really good insurance so I got a settlement through them, but almost all of it went to my life flight bill and medical bills.
