In the beginning, I didn’t know what to mourn more—the death of my husband, or the death of who I used to be, you know, because of the guilt associated with me physically driving the car. So, in the beginning, I think guilt drove me to over-function. You know, if kids had a small party, my children would’ve had a bigger party. You know, it was one of those, you know, want to be bigger that Jones, so my kids didn’t feel like they were left out somehow because of my disability. So, guilt probably led me to do a lot of things that I didn’t want to do or I wouldn’t have done, but I think as I progressed with this injury or this, yeah, life with the spinal cord injury, I think it started to have its place. Do I still have guilt? Absolutely. I would be lying to you again if I said that I didn’t live with guilt, but I don’t led guilt drive me.
