9780952169635: Indestructible Soul: How I decided not to die

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to die for a little while and then come back again? Have you thought what it might be like to have a hideous injury, a real one not an actor made up with pretend red blood? What’s it like when a car drives into you? How long do you live before all your blood leaks out and you perish? How much pain is it possible to feel? Do you have a choice about whether you live or die at this point? I wished I’d never wondered what it was like to walk with crutches. The novelty wore off quite quickly. After 6 months it was frustrating enough to make me leave them by the front door as I left, and walk out of the house quite prepared to fall over ... This book, Indestructible Soul, is an autobiographical account of what I have recalled about an accident where a drunk driver drove his car into my leg as I was riding past a junction. I haven’t remembered everything of course. It is about what shaped my experience, what factors led firstly to my survival and then to my extraordinary recovery. I never doubted that I would get better, nor that I would get back on a bike and take my test. I assumed that my body would repair, and I knew that I would give it the best nutrition and lifestyle to do so. What I didn’t realise was how all this depended on how well I was at the time of the accident, and that my lifestyle saved my life, particularly the breathing technique that I use: Rebirthing Breathwork. I only began to understand this after I had started writing the account. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Catherine has ridden a bicycle almost every day since she learned to ride at 7, with her daddy running along behind the fairy cycle holding saddle in the cul-de-sac in Devon, where she grew up. With each child she added another seat, until she had a tandem with a child seat on the carrier at the back and a cross bar seat for the baby in front of her oldest child who peddled on the back seat. There’s a photo of that somewhere. Once her children were teenagers she decided to learn to ride a motorbike. After 3 weeks she was struck by a car. This is the story of that incident when she almost died, and the following challenging and wonderful events that lead to her survival and recovery. She met her current husband while she was recovering. He helped her to strengthen her leg and to learn to ride a 600cc bike so she could take her test and then confidently ride knowing, that if necessary, she could get away from incompetent drivers.
