The events of this story revolves around my true personal experience that occurred during the Fall of l982, while sport diving in the Gulf of Mexico with three friends, John, Kitty, and Carlos. Danger was obvious for me, as a change in my breathing equipment occurred. At that moment I knew my life was in jeopardy and I was fighting with all my strength. After being retrieved from the water and taken to a nearby hospital, I was treated by a Physician and determined to have post traumatic stress syndrome and physical handicaps. The treatment process was difficult for myself and created a hardship on my family. There were times I didn't think I was going to pull through, but my faith and my family were my main sources of energy.
