  1. The lady stuck in the car was me. I love this report as i was late thirties not twenties 🙂 Find a positive in everything! The firefighters, ambulance crew air ambulance on site were simply amazing.. I have now met up with the firemen who saved me and my son Arthur. Which was a truly humbling experience. They also were able to get some closure in knowing what had happened to me and the baby after we were freed. They put on a lovely demonstration for myself and my family, with each of my four boys having a go with the grinders that cut up my car and got me out. Two years on, i am now slowly back working with the aid of a stick, my pelvis injuries whilst healed give me tremendous pain. My arm has been skilfully put back together, although nerve endings take years to repair. The mental trauma to myself and my family is however the hardest thing to comprehend. I do have a great therapist who specialises in EMDR which is amazing at helping me process what happened. I am very positive about the future although the current situation with chronic pain do take their toll. Although i am just glad that i was saved and that i am here for my family – even if i havent resumed my supermum role just yet!
