Thread: Who here is Happy? I mean real happy.

    It is REALLY hard walking the way Cory does, and it hurts too. More complete injuries often don't know how damn hard it is to walk with an incomplete nervous system. I don't think mossberg meant harm though...he just doesn't know. I get around a lot better, and easier, in this chair than I did walking. I do lots more because of it too, as far as traveling etc.

    I am a little over six years post and I never get that truly happy feeling either. There is so much stupid crap or pain or other issues that go on that when something truly good happens it's like ehh what's the use just something else bad around the corner. Maybe it's just a negative attitude toward certain things for me but is like I am almost living life with no emotion.

    I also like to go out and have a good time with family and friends but at the end of the night is like crap here I am again.

    I guess I'm in the minority here, but I'm happy. My life went to shit in Feb 2004, and I'm still trying to make things right, but I'm happy. Everyday I wake up and tell myself that it WILL be a good day, no worries. Yeah you have to manage this injury and I do miss the spontaeity of life pre sci, but I'm here and I'm breathing and I can stil smell fresh coffee brewing, hear my daughters giggle and feel the warmth of the sun n my face. Its the small stuff that gets you through it. Dont worry about what you can't do.....most people never do that shit anyway. Just bust your butt at what you can do.

    So I shit my pants once in a while....thats why god made washing machines. ;-) I'm still alive and facing one of the biggest challenges of my life............. I was never afraid of a challenge pre sci, why change now? (a week or two off would be nice though! LOL)

    Don't worry about the little stuff either. The only time you should worry is when you can be killed and eaten by whatever is bothering you, LOL any worry other than that is just a bump in the road

    Hang in there man!!!!

    your first post is so right-on with how i feel...it's like yea i make the best out of the situation so that's good, but I know there's a level of happiness i'm not at and not sure i'll ever be at. It makes me feel selfish sometimes or like i'm taking things for granted, but i can't help that it feels like i'm just trudging through mud and going through the motions thinking, "this is as good as it gets. yippee."
    Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

    No I am not completely happy either. I do not feel "unhappy" It seems that my joy is always overcast with a sigh of some sort. A feeling of burden. For example when I travel I am happy I can travel and go alone. Then there's the hassle of figureing everything out. Where to stop for gas so I can reach the card slot or not being able to just run in a quickmart and get a snack and get back on the road. Or I don't feel ike trying to fit in the restroom so I gotta pee in the water bottle then I have to carry around the dirty cath till I can wash it since medicare will only give me 4 now for an entire month. Whoever decided that rule I'd like to give 4 squares of toilet papaer and have them figure out how to make them last a month. So I'm happy and at the same time it just pisses me off.

    Then there's the happy observer feeling. Like yay I'm happy we are _______ and everyone is having fun. I'm having fun too but I'm sick of being the jacket holder I want to get up and run around too.

    And then there's sex. Damn that was awesome and glad I finally figured out how to make that work but did you know if I was AB I would be hanging from that ceiling fan??? Ok maybe not but anyway. . . .

    Ok end of whining. Thanks Cory

    Yah that 4 caths per month is horriable, I buy everything myself its expensive but shit, I'm not dealing with that.

    I'm glad some people can find true happiness though thats nice.

    Ahh yes, sex...I honestly would have 5 kids by now if I could jump back into my old shoes, wowwww.

    Adi would be out of control hah
