    Angry Specultions On Our Misery

    Besides all those remarks people make like: "you are such an inspiration to me"
    Or when a SCI person is dating or living together with an AB/body they say behind your back something like:
    "he/she (the SCI) is so lucky to have him/her"
    How many of you have come across this other remark saying, "YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY BECAUSE GOD HAS PLANS IN STORE FOR YOU"....what a B/S.
    One of the questions that pops up right way is;
    I wonder how happy were & what kinda plan was it there in store for those QUADS, or worse, that have been 30+ years in the wheelchairs & depending all there life on other people????

    my guess is that we're proof of the things that can happen if we were to take life for granted.

    my life isn't bad, it's infact better in other ways. it's just a pain in the ass to do everything and i can't reach anything...

    are you inferring that we deserve what has happened because we took life for granted?

    no i'm not

    if we were to take life for granted

    let's face it though, who thinks this will ever happen to them until it really happens? not a whole lot of them.

    Unhappy

    Sometimes I feel like I was having TOO MUCH fun and enjoying life too much, and the big guy upstairs got ticked off that I had exceeded my quota, and cut me off.

    i know that, and that personally pisses me off because the person that was driving the car i was in was unscathed. she's an ungrateful dirty rotten bitch. i feel like i'm paying for others' mistakes.

    i'm not saying i know why we're chosen as we are to be lessons to others but...THAT'S MY SPECULATION....that's all it is. i feel like i'm an example for taking life for granted, not for being ungrateful for what i have.

    sci makes me stronger. i don't know about how you feel about it, or what your speculations are, but thanks for your question not being accusatory or hostile.

    I recall these words also; "pobrecita"(poor girl). It used to aggravate me to no end. Didn't want to go out at all. Have met many other remarks that can be hurtful but with time, I have learned to blow them off. I guess like a lady we knew when I was little, she said once that she put lard on her back so things would slide off, I had to learn to do that. It can be hard but I don't think you can make people change. I don't understand actually why it happened but it is there so I just deal with it a day at a time. Makes my life easier too. *shrug*

    Jeff, we need a shrug on our smilies too.

    all i know is i abused myself...maybe evenn other people.
    always thinking i was only hurting myself
    now it's true, i was hurting myself...
    there isn't enough pain meds in all the world that can reach my tolarence without killing me...
    And NOW i have REAL pain...
    not just teeage angst...
    not childbirth...
    not divorce...
    not my worst migraine...
    yet i buried them all, at first it was alcohol, then pills, then whatever
    i could get when the script ran out that month...
    and finally the meth clinic...
    which brought to this - a complete c-6 quad with chronic physical AGONYand real emotional pain...but did i deserve it?
    my car hit a tree... no one else
    it could be said i WASTED my life, but abused it?
    i do not know.
