Shock was the reason I calmly told the ambulance attendants at my motorcycle accident that I had a broken collarbone (I called it something loose in my shoulder, but they got the idea) a lacerated lower leg (that bled off and on for two weeks) and soft tissue damage to my upper leg. I had also sat up, removed my helmet, and tried to walk to see what my bike looked like...until they forced me to lay still in case I had back or neck injuries. They didn't believe I was that badly damaged until the shock started to wear off, and my hands and legs started shaking uncontrollably. That's when they gave me nitrous in the ambulance, morphine and ketorolac in the hospital, and enough Tylenol 3 to last me two weeks at home. I felt nothing with the shock and drugs, but the photos my friend took in the trauma unit looked pretty nasty.
