Don't worry - just another decade or more!!!
I appreciate all the hard work of Dr Wise and other researchers...
But I've just gotten so sad, disheartened and hopeless lately.
I just read the cure site... and it's STILL at another 5-10 years... although they seem to have no idea... How can this be?
This summer will mark my FOURTEENTH year in a wheelchair. Are you kidding me!?!?
I've lost my entire 20s being in this thing. And it's ALWAYS been JUST another 5-10 years...
I used to be able to ignore the injury, hoping it wouldn't last long.... then not too much longer.
Instead, I just focused on my career and friends .... and working on things I could do something about. I was the one with the spark, the one who cheered everyone up and brought smiles to the room... But still felt so detached from people, their simple problems.
But then I met this guy... and fell in love. All of sudden I saw all the things I wanted in my life - things everyone else seems to have so easily. I wanted them too. I was so happy.
And then I moved across the country to be with him... and it didn't work out.
Probably the chair.. it's just too difficult. I wouldn't choose this. I DIDN'T choose this.
I've lost my spark.
It would help to know it won't be forever... but I just can't imagine the rest of my life like this.
How can we just just keep living like this? Surviving while the mere sight of the wheelchair reminds others how much worse their lives could be?
WHY ISN'T MORE BEING DONE!?!?
