Location: Louisiana

Date Of Injury: May 2007

My story was honestly not so horrific, but we were really poor. Our water heater broke and we had to boil water in order to have hot water. So my brother poured two pots of boiling water in the tub. As I raised my hand to balance myself on the tub, my hand slipped and I fell in. My mother pulled me out before I hit the bottom of the tub, and she ran to call the police. I pulled off my clothes, and saw that my skin was in my clothes and I passed out. For 3 months I was in the hospital, with 1.2 million dollars in hospital bills but my insurance paid for all of it and I spent a year in recovery. Getting bullied was a norm for me, but I got over it and began to read. I’ve graduated and I feel amazing about myself. I love the support system of this site, and everything about the you all.
