I get tired of the way people act as if because I am in this chair I am going to break.
Don't treat me like this, the accident changed some things, and I have to live with that. I am in this chair, not by choose but I can chose the way I live my life.
I am in my Senior year now and of course things have changed. The accident at the begining of the summer changed my life forever, but I choose to move on.
Starting school was a little difficult I must admit. People who knew what happened were trying to be understanding but their were kids that acted as if I had the plaque or something. But what is worse is when those who are fully grown act that way.
I am adapting to life in this chair as best as I can. I am going to do what I can to make the best of my life and I am not going to sit around feeling sorry for myself. That will certainly not do me or anyone else any good.
Instead I am going to embrace the fact that I have my life still and I am going to continue to strive for my dreams.
I am only seventeen my life is just begining. I am not about to let this accident let it mark my end, instead it is a new begining.
To Be Continued
