    You are an inspiration. I broke my C1, C6 and C7. I am mobile but in pain all the time. I admire your strength and posative mental attitude

    I’m a three year paraplegic. Some folks suffer more than others due to chronic pain. Some people just aren’t strong enough to deal with adversity. Pain is sometimes a problem for me. I accept and deal with adversity. I mostly kick adversity’s ass! I don’t have or make time for depression, but I used to. I wish you the best.

    I agree with the overal message of the video. At the same I cannot help but wonder why some people suffer so much more than others. No I don’t have an SCI but do suffer from severe anxiety disorder and depression…it affects every aspect of my life. Cannot help but feel jealous of others wo do not have these problems. Most people can eat in public whithout almost having a dry heave fit…I can’t.

    People putting you down for your differences is something you should never “get used to”, because by getting used to it, you are accepting it! By fighting back, you can make the able-bodied community “get used to” the fact that you are in a wheelchair, but that doesn’t make you different than anyone else.

  9. clairedelune777 says:

    As a wheelchair user myself, I fully understand the struggles. However, when people challenge you or don’t include you in things, the proper response is not to insult them or say “they suck”. You need to fight back. Life with a disability sucks a lot less if you can work to change people’s minds about accessibility & other disability issues.

    commandment number 3, i think people should stare at you because youre beautiful. 😀 We’re all people here. Its harder for some, and easier for others, but we all strive, and we are all beautiful. I dated a girl who was on her way to life in a wheelchair. I carried her around. I wrote her a song. “You Wont Need Feet if I Make You Wings”. Lol, she cheated on me. Hahaha. Oh, its true. 🙂 ANYWAYS! Everyone should love everyone! FLINT MICHIGAN TROPICS!!!

    Your physical disability is clearly not your actual handicap. Obnoxious disposition is a much bigger problem a sad and lonely minority is suffering from.
