A Long Dark Road, an Injured Worker’s Story – A summary of events

In December 1995 I was injured at ArcelorMittal Dofasco.  That injury never really healed and has been aggravated over the intervening years.  This injury and the next fifteen years or so of reoccurrences that tested my spirit in ways I couldn’t even imagine. Abuse still held me in its cold grasp, this time it was my employment that was the abuser. It took a long time to recognize that I had the ability to stand against their wishes.

Within the frame-work of my injuries and pain I found the strength of spirit to continue to move and breathe. I began writing newsletters as much as a release for my experiences and trials as they were to inspire others. Spiritually it became a test of faith. Not just to simply inspire people to put all of these concepts into practice but to convince my mind of the strength hidden away within my spirit. It has made me stronger and it promises to stand by me no matter what I am to experience.

The blogs below take you on my journey through the accidents and their effects on my mind and body. It may have been my path to experience these incidents but I realize I am not alone as many others suffer at the hands of greedy corporations. I trust that you will find these stories of my experiences surprising enough to inspire you to move forward within the turmoil of your own life.
