Let me take this time to set you straight about something just because i happen to be in a wheelchair, does not give you the right to treat me like an idiot. I am so fed up with that, I did not chose to be in this chair, but an accident landed me here, but I am alive and I am doing to my best to get through this. I am not going to stop living my life, but things have changed I understand that, that does not mean the person I was before has changed though, so don't feel you have to tip toe around me. I promise you I am not going to break, and if something makes me cry, well then I must need to let those tears go.
You know what surprises me more than the way kids react to what happened to me, the fact that I am in this chair, it's the adults. Hello people I do not need to be coddle I am nearly seventeen so please don't treat me like an infant. If I need help I will ask for it I have a mouth I can use it.
I take a great stock in my faith and where it has taken me. Others scoff thinking how can a loving God let an accident like this happen, but the fact that I am here allows me to show just how far God's grace goes.
Despite what people think I am not going to sit around wallowing in self pity, and that does not mean I am in denial I have accepted what happens to me, I have moments of grief, but I chose not to grieve in front of everyone.
