FAQ’s about brain injuries


Trouble at UPS

After working for UPS as a package handler for a week, I had to stop because of my injury. One of the jobs consisted of picking up packages that weighed up to 75 pounds and doing it as fast as I could. The other task was picking up a package, read the destination, and make sure it was in the correct order in the correct car; you had to do this as fast as possible. I thought I may be able to do this but one day I went into work and my left arm was dead. I had pretty much destroyed the right side of my brain in my car accident and the right side of your brain controls the left side of your body. When I say it was dead that’s exactly what I mean. I could not move it, hurt, it had no function. The function came back in time. I can only think that there is a direct connection between my accident and my arm reacting this way.That’s when I knew I had to get out and that this job wasn’t for me.
