Just came back from church. A friend of mine spoke about being in a wheelchair for the past 22 years. And raising her daughter, getting a college degree, buying a house, and working as a counsellor while paralysed from the chest down.
She also said that it saved her life, because before that she was all about cocaine.
The sermon was about perseverance, finding the good in the bad, PTSD, and Post Traumatic Growth, with reference to neural research.
You can do it!
