Hope for the damaged
Yo, Officially disabled from 7K jumps, car wrecks, yadda yadda, ... I share good news besides being not-dead: a) Your tolerance for pain is very high. This is handy. b) Doctors sometimes get it wrong. I CAN step off a high curb and not be paralyzed for life sez 4k jumps; I can land with 'no-ankles’ sez 1k jumps.... c) Getting back to 'normal' is possible: Yoga and Tai Chi cure all your warts, mostly. Booze and drugs are helpful for some. Braces and supports are handy. d) Sometimes not having a limb or joint is better than putting up with the hassles. Mostly true. e) Think about it, many-most of your 'normal' friends have emotional/ social/ mental/ moral handicaps. f) Parking places are easier to find. g) The attention you may attract is a given h) Being ambulatory is good. Very. i) You'll always feel blessed by Dr.-waiting-room trips where some in the assembly are Way more FU than you. It could be worse. j) Not waking up with a toe-tag means its going to be a GOOD day.
Check your toes each morning. Have a good day.
