I got into a terrible accident when I was in high school. It was like a nightmare. All I can remember is that I was riding a motorcycle that my friend was driving. I can still remember feeling the wind blowing my hair. I was not wearing a helmet because it was already late in the evening and there are not much vehicles in the streets. The last thing I remembered was a bright flash of light. It was just too bright.
The Morning After
I woke up and saw the white ceiling. Then, I saw the white walls. Then, I saw my father sitting, staring blankly into space while my mother was crying silently; tears falling down her eyes without making any sound at all. I was lying on a hospital bed. I called my mom but my throat was too dry. Still, she noticed that I am moving and that I am awake. She reached out to me and hugged me.
I asked for water and when I was able to speak, I asked them where my friend is. They told me that my friend was sent somewhere else and it’s not looking good. Later on, I learned that his whole family moved to another state.
The accident left me with a couple of ugly scars on my face and an empty spot in my heart. I did not have the courage to try to reach my friend. I was scared about what I will be told if I ask for him. I stayed at home. Somehow, I found comfort in eating. I did not go back to school. I learned cooking and ate more. Until I noticed that my mouth is rarely without food. Then my clothes become tighter. I get tired faster. I felt uglier than ever. My friends do not get tired of calling me, asking me to go out with them. I just know that I can’t, from what I see in the mirror.
A Surprise Visit
I never accepted any visitor at the house. It was about four months after the accident. I felt like I am getting uglier everyday and I do not feel okay about my friends seeing me like this. But, when my mom told me that I have a visitor and mentioned my friend’s name, I forgot all about my looks and went down to meet him. I hugged him tightly and we asked each other a lot of questions. I have learned that he had to undergo surgeries and that they are back here for good. I told him how worried I was and told him about my depression. He promised to get me right back on track. I was so happy that I did not have the heart to protest and ask. I just said yes.
When he arrived the next morning, he was wearing biking gears. He asked me to change into something more appropriate for cycling and handed me a bottle. I read the label and saw that it was a bottle of Garcinia Cambogia Ultra. I asked him what it is but he just gave me directions on how to take it. I did not ask. I just followed. When we get home from cycling, I did some research and the reviews that I read got me really excited. I continued taking Garcinia Cambogia Ultra and in a matter of months, I was nearly back to my original size! Aside from my weight loss, good news is that my friend formally asked me out for a date. I will always remember that it all started with Garcinia Cambogia Ultra.
