My name is Holly Young & I’m 23 years old. September 20th, 2016 is burned in my mind forever. My boyfriend was making dinner for us, when the oil we were heating up in the stove caught on fire.I ran over & tried putting the lid on but it wouldn’t fit. As the flames started growing, I grabbed some oven mitts & tried to get it out of my apartment. It was too late, I was caught on fire & fell down a flight of stairs outside of my apartment in the process. I am now dealing with a lot of trauma & anxiety. But I’m sure that’s normal… right? It was the worst pain that I have ever felt. 3rd degree affected 10% of my body. I cant thank the nurses & doctors that pushed to save me.The only thing that keeps me going is knowing that I know someone else has it worse out there.
