A social media user named Deborah Ayatse has shared a touching story about her life on the internet. The wheel-chair bound mother and wife used her story to advise other women out there to never give up on life no matter the situation.
According to the accident survivor, life for her turned upside down after she got pregnant for her husband when they were still dating.
In her post, she recounted how the hand of God changed and story from sorrow to joy. She started by saying: "I just want to share my story here today in other to encourage my fellow sisters who are in the same situation with me and are already giving up on life. Please just know that it's not over yet until the creator says it's over."
Speaking about her life after getting pregnant, she said: "My story, I graduated and went for my service in Ogun state, Ayetoro to be precise 2010 and met this guy, he started asking me out i refused but later accepted since we're both doing our primary assignment in same school. Before i knew it i realized that i was pregnant with just one blow, i told him and he said i should keep the baby but i was not sure of myself because of the disgrace my family will be put to, so i decided to terminate the pregnancy but on my way to my destination which is Abuja since schools are on vacation i got involved in an accident that turned everything around for me."
Talking on her experience on almost-deathbed she said: "The doctor said i wouldn't last more than two days my family should come and pick me up with an ambulance. I was taken to national hospital where they discovered i had spinal cord injury and the pregnancy was still intact and i refuse to tell my family thinking it will flush out on it's own during the cause of the treatment but nothing of sort happened. Finally i decided to let it out, though they were dissapointed at first but still stood by me. Everybody started thinking of what will become of me cos no man in his right senses will want to take me as a wife but because we don't have the final say but only God does. The father of my child went ahead and paid my bride price while i was still at the hospital, despite the fact that am still on a wheelchair and still carrying catheter all around he still adores me. I've never been ashamed of going out with catheter on me,always smiling and appreciating God for his mercy and grace over my life."
"This month it's been 7years after the doctors said i wouldn't last for more than 3days, but here i am still standing and still waxing stronger not because i deserve it but because God's plans for me is to live."
