I was hit on my motorcycle and my worse fears became true in a flash. I felt pain like I never felt in my whole life on earth, In this horror story, to sum it up my legs were broken all to hell and required alot of surgery to make them right.. I would be out of work for a year or more.. An to make matters worse the girl that hit me,, well her dad was a cop so they put the whole thing down on paper as if I had a death wish and turned in front of her.. Of course she never told the truth and said that she ran a red light on New years eve. Hell the cops didnt even give her a sobriety test... " which Im positive that she had been drinkin" Any how so I was layed up in a hospital and got more great news, she didnt have insurance either!!! This means everything I worked for will slowly go away for sure.. Now I face that facts that because of all this I will not be able to get my bike back together and I was going to be out of work for along time. I applied for disablity and my DR messed up the paper work so I was denied and now had know way to support myself. I have never been down as I am rightnow. Its been a really hard year for me,,, nothing to look forward to and very upset about how things turned out for me. So sitting around one night I was watching Criss Angel Perform on A&E and I really liked what I saw.. He was doing some impossible things and it really blew me away. It actually made me say to myself hey this is something Id like to do for myself. So I got started learning some simple tricks and kept working on them over and over with all the spare time I now had and within it seemed like no time I was getting a good response out of friends and family so I kept going with it learning bigger and better tricks everyday. I truly had found something that I could do for myself to make myself feel well again.. I sure miss my bike... Its was a 1970 Ironhead classic so I can never replace it for another one cause the chances of finding one are slim to none, but I guess what Im saying if I hadnt gotten hit and my bike wasnt taken out I probly wouldnt have open my mind to new things like I have. I really have to say that magic does have a big place in my life, and I love how people respond to what I do now right before their very eyes! So I would just like to take the time to say thanks to Criss Angel for openning my eyes to this art/culture! THANX CRISS, you truly have made a difference in my life!!!
