I guess keeping life semi-normal.  They were my constants before my injury, my friends and family, especially my husband; that kept me grounded, and kept some normalcy in my life.  They were always there before, so they were still there afterwards.  And I think anything relating to normalcy was a comfort, because “normal” wasn’t a word that I would ever think I could use again to describe my life.  Having something normal, anything normal, I craved for.
