Elva Hsiao Says Recovering From Her Traumatic Head Injury Is Like Returning From "The Gates Of Hell"
Everyone knows Taiwanese singer Elva Hsiao is total badass and now she has the battle scars to prove it.
While filming her music video in the US last October, the 40-year-old got into an accident that left a gaping wound on her head and that it required six surgical staples. On April 7, the singer wrote a lengthy post on Facebook. While she didn't reveal how she got injured, she admitted that the accident had such a huge effect on her, she needed time to recover from it mentally.
“I posted the photos mainly because I feel that everyone takes their own lives too lightly,” she began. “I recalled my accident when observing the global COVID-19 situation (..) Sometimes, words can’t express how much pain I went through, and I thought that using a photo to share how much it hurt would convey the message even better."
"Apart from letting everyone hear my music, I hope that everyone will understand that they should think about their health so that you won’t go through the pain that I did.”
She continued, “I got hurt while I was at work. The road to recovery was painful. I got better one step at a time, and standing back up wasn’t easy. I hope everyone treasures and loves themselves, and that you won’t cause worry and trouble for the people around you.”
Elva ended her post with: “If I didn’t manage to return from the gates of hell, [I would have let down] my family members who gave up their sleep [to be with me], who accompanied me to the restroom, fed me water, and reminded me to keep breathing, that I am Elva Hsiao (…) We can tide over this if we treasure ourselves and our bodies.”
