my thoughts for today on my new life

i find myself not hurtung so much when i walk, i still get tired, but i suck it up and push forward, i do still hurt mentally, something that i still fear well never leave, i have seem to hurt the ones close to me for so long that now that im trying to make right what was wronged that its not working, to much damage done, i still worry about losing my love, i trust her, and i love her, but i dont think it will ever leave my head that it would just be easier for her to walk, everyday that i see her i feel blessed to have her in my life, that gave me atleast one more day to show her what she is to me. i went to a support group in my area last night with other amputees, they all either were missing just a arm or just a leg, i was asked which one do i miss more, i said my arm, then people missing a leg got a little upset, said they much rather had lost a arm, it was just my opinion. truthfully, a shoulda said - i miss them both. but i do miss my arm more not because i cant pick things up with it, the main reason is because i just want to hold her so bad, id give anything to be able to do that again. i find myself being more open with people, maybe writting this down is working. i tell people my thoughts a lot now, weather they want to hear it or not, im not looking for someone to listen, just be there, so i think you are. i have had a rough time with my girls mom. shes never liked me, i have never liked her, but i am trying, it is important to my soon to be wife. i would be ok with her if when the whole family attacked her daughter that it wasnt i that stood up and said something, and when i did she told me to be quiet, that it was not my place, i said that is my girlfriend you all made cry, and it is my place...this happen a year ago, but ever since her mom thinks i am disrespectful....and i am....to those that have no respect for me or a loved one. but i have put my defences down with her hoping to start over,,,,again...time will tell.

The only thing I can tell you is don't push her away with your fears. She is with you because she wants to be I am sure. Just tell her how you feel. And LISTEN when she tells you how she does. You and her have been through alot, hold onto that when you start to doubt.

Never give up! Keep being strong-for you and for your loved ones. That's what they would want most of all. I can relate to the future-mother-in-law situation, don't give up on that either. She doesn't have to like you or you her, but it only makes things easier on you and your girl if ya'll get along. Most importantly, don't give up! You have been through more than most and you still have an awsome attitude towards life. You are one of the few people that I admire. I only hope that I could do what you do if something like that were to happen to me. Not to sound "corny" but you're like one of my heros! Keep your spirits high!

I was in an accident that ruptured 2 disks in my back. The pressure on my spinal cord was so great that it paralyzed my left side and only could move myright arm. for 2 weeks i was on the brink of the risk of no feeling or movement and pemanent paralysis. I pulled through after a long struggle and surgery and a lot of meds that i got hooked on too. I lost all my friends and pushed away every one that loved me. Your doing great. The people that love you--dont push them away. The one that stayed with me through all that was the girl that i married. Good luck

hey bro, if you need a kick in the im here man,

the mental pain remains---you can put it away

the physical and phantom pains return every night like a bad dream you cant wake from, -----theres a way to beat them too

it hurts when u wanna hold someone you love and only have 1 arm-1s good enough

when u want to run with your kids but cant cuz you you gotta leg-i walk fast

the situation makes you bitter and hateful even to those that care about you...they understand and love you anyway

the drugs work but they make u different, dont take em you can deal with the pain---my pain reminds me im alive--i need it, i know that sound sick but its a part of my life 24 hours a day...i dont take em anymore....

what im trying to say is.....it will get better gradually---youll learn that even though things are more difficult, youll relearn, the hardest thing i had to relearn was how to with my my right hand LOL---afer that its all down hill

i know you dont think it, but this is going to make you 10 times stronger than you were before, r u the same man u were before.....no your better, stronger,more appreciative,compassionate....life is good in any form....

i gotta limp, 1 arm ,--------scarred up fukin face scars all over my body, retired dis/ army x S/F--
welder,metal fabricator,engine builder,mechanic,i drag raced fast cars, bikes, fly helicopters airplanes, paint bikes, ride still, electronic engineering, do my own reloading, shoot big guns, machinist, ----i learned these things after losing an arm, tragedy either breaks u or makes you superhuman, but its a choice----you can do either one...trust me ive been down both roads...
NEVER QUIT GODAMMIT
