Well hopefully you heal up nice. I'm in the roofing biz and know several people that have fallen off of ladder and been quite lucky. Then there are the few that fell and weren't so lucky...I'm glad you're alive.

just outta curiosity how old are you?

I broke my neck 7 years ago when I was 20. I hit a windshield. Make sure you play the workers comp game and see all their doctors. Also call a layer and see some specialist on the side. This is an injury that you will have for the rest of your life. Glad to hear you are OK and are in good spirits

Amen to this, I had a back injury about 5 years ago and it bothers me every single day.



Good to hear your alright so far.

(use a little punctuation next time that was hard to read).

Glad your going to be ok.

I fell 19 ft it is the stop that sucks. My only problem is the left wrist. It has been a year and still seeing doctors. Take your time to heal.

I healed better than the doctors expected. I have some loss of movement, but it doesn't bother me too much. As for problems, my neck will stiffen up pretty good about once or twice a month. Tends to do it more in the winter months. Other than that I'm fine
