Since my injury is so high, I was put in a halo brace to prevent my neck and head from moving. I wore the brace for three months and I couldn’t wait to get it off. The day finally came, and on October 2nd, two years ago, I got my halo off! I didn’t realize how scared I would be. Even though the bones in my neck were stable, the muscles were weak and I didn’t trust that I could hold my head up on my own. I relied on wearing a neck brace for months after even though it wasn’t really necessary.
