Thread: What motivates you to keep fighting...

    I am envious of your penis. Thus far I have tied cialis, viagra and the shots, and even the shots only gave me about half of an erection. Not really enough to use and the lack of sensation made the whole experience less than positive. I mean it's great that I can give my wife pleasure with my tongue etc, and I know it's just being selfish, but what about me? I'm almost tempted to just hack it off so that I won't be constantly reminded that it's dead and that I couldn't even feel it if I tried to masturbate any more.

    Are there any paraplegic motorcycle riding clubs that anyone is aware of preferrably in the Bay area? If not is anyone interested in starting one? I'll bet that we could get Sears point to give us a decent rate for track days, and who knows people might even be willing to pay to watch a bunch of gimps racing on motorcycles. I know that for me my inability to ride any more has caused me much sorrow. That was one of the few things that I had before my accident that really was enjoyable.

    Sign me up for that. I used to go to thunderhill more than sears point and like it better. Selling my RC-51 was one of many low points post injury. I not too excited about people "paying to watch gimps" but it would be fun just to do.

    And dude, lose the negative stuff. Life is what you make it and if you think it will suck it will, if you don't it wont.

    Believe me, I am trying very hard to be more optomistic, I guess I'm just a pussy cuz it seems to me that the harder I try to look at things from a positive perspective the more negative things happen in my life to bring me down and upset me. At least when I expect the worst possible outcome from things I avoid feeling disappointed when things go wrong which they usually do.

    I wonder if we could get Honda to donate a few of those new doubleclutch bikes that are basically automatics to our cause. I've still got my ZX750, but haven't figured out how to shift with no ankle function

    Mike -- get a high powered ATV, join a local club and start off-roading. Guaranteed, the club would consider it an honor to have you and help you out.

    I used to race dirt bikes, but the quad is just as much fun and most of the older guys are migrating to quads anyway.

    Point is, you need to get back out and compete. Handcycle racing is a blast and will dispel whatever misconceptions you harbor about how tough SCI folks are.

    Also T8Burst, not to belabor a point here, but if you read my first post you will see that the whole reason that I started this thread was to gain a little insight on how others deal with the negative aspects of their SCI's, because I am not doing a vey good job at it myself. And if you wee already aware of that then Ilet me be the first to make you aware that simply saying
    "And dude, lose the negative stuff. Life is what you make it and if you think it will suck it will, if you don't it wont."
    Isn't really a whole lot of help. However if by some unlikely chance that you felt that your statement was somehow helpful, then thank you for your effort anyway...
