About meMitch Murphy
On June 4, 2011 around 2:00am, my sandal got stuck, I lost my balance and fell 25 feet. I suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and a spinal-cord injury (SCI). The fall caused me to fracture my skull in two places, jarring my brain damaged my olfactory nerve and I lost my sense of smell and I fractured both my T9 and T12 vertebrae. Considering the severity of my injuries, I only spent 2.5 months in the hospital. Since my SCI, I have not been able to walk, but I am constantly in an incredible amount of pain (due to nerve regeneration) and ever since I could I have been rehabbing really hard, and one day I will be able to walk again!
