things you never.....
tasks and accomplishments you were told or believed you would never do.
Looking to start a feel-good thread for all us SCIs on overcoming other peoples and our own ill-conceived ideas on what we thought was impossible. Not meant to be a competition, just a friendly "hey, we ain't dead" thread.
Top 2 for me currently.
1) do bowel on a regular toilet, any old place at any old time. ie- inaccessible hotel, airport bathrooms waiting on a delayed flight. Still haven't had to in a Starbucks cup yet.
2) get into and out of the bathtub independently. Since moving I had new facilities to deal with and just kinda threw myself in the tub without knowing how I'd get out. Nothing like a nice hot bath, the second time is even better knowing that you can get out and back in your chair. Even bought myself a rubber duckie.
These 2 let me travel light and feel a lot less disabled since I learned I could.
Hoping to keep this on a positive note people, I feel it's helpful for us newer injuries. If you need to gripe, there's another thread for that.
Let's here em!
