"My name is Blaine Carver and I am a survivor of a chainsaw accident that happened at my home in December of 2010. I grew up using chainsaws, having a grandfather that worked in the woods for a living. I had cut wood so many times before with no problems. I never thought anything would happen to me. We take it for granted that accidents happen to other people, never to us.
Severe injury affects your family, friends and community. Many people take for granted that support will always be there. I know I did. After leaving the hospital, the reality of having to face a possible diminished quality of life set in. It was very scary and sometimes depressing to cope with. I found myself needing to lean on the people who cared about me most in ways I never imagined. Luckily, my message is not only one of safety precaution but of hope for survival and recovery as well.
I wish to share my story with the world in the hope that I might save even one person from making a life-altering mistake."
