Personal Stories

Joe Zamora

Joe Zamora portraitJoe remembers returning to the corral after a fun family ride. He was thrown from his horse and woke up in an ambulance. A former probation officer, who took pride in his education and his job, he can no longer work. He is deeply frustrated. “Sometimes when I’m home alone and the depression and loneliness and probably self pity overwhelm me, I begin to cry,” he says. “I don’t want to feel the tears rolling down my face, so I will lean over and bow my head so they fall straight down. I search the puddle on the floor looking for the pain the tears are supposed to wash away, but all I see is a puddle of tears.”

Jessica

JessicaJessica, now a talented artist, was a passenger in a car that hit a tree when she was a teen. She was in a coma for four weeks. “First it was a thick grey fog, then it started to lift and hover like cataracts,” she remembers. “Then it was now, and now is sort of like white, but you stand out and everybody sees you stand out and you know you will never fit in. You have been where no one else has.”
