To make it short in a blunt way, I went from a happy, wired up, non-stop go getter. Working a full time job & attending nursing school at night just short of doing my clinical's, to spending the remainder of my life as a shaky paraplegic and 4 wheels stuck to my butt.
Life's been interesting though, but I think I've done more now than I did ambulatory. I still boogie board. It's just called para-surfing now. Still drive my car, with hand controls, The parking is great (most-times), it's kewl to hop curbs, but up and down stairs really stinks. I am also undergoing testing for MS.
I'm not able to work so I run a small business from my home making Custom Bridal & Formal gowns plus alterations. If you would like to see some of my work visit; www.jccarolinaformals.com
