Not being able to talk
The BBC are showing a video of someone who suffers from a locked in syndrome. It tells the story of a man who got the syndrome when he was just 12 years old. He is now married and has a baby on the way. I don’t know how that happened. Neither does he. It’s a strange story of someone who found the ability to communicate. His parents didn’t know he was in there, so it was amazing fot them that he was.
He has written a book about his life as a disabled person but i’m in no mad rush to read it. I’ve experienced enough of life to last me a forever. It’s definitely an uphill struggle. There’s no doubt about that. My story is one of being unable to walk. It’s a struggle to learn to get used to it. How do you cope with it? A big part of your life is taken away from you when you lose your legs. I used to think i could walk but soon found i couldn’t when i jumped out of my wheelchair and found that i was unable to.
Raising my good arm so that i can drink is also a problem. I don’t know why but i can’t raise it in the aternoon. I lose all the strength to do it so i have to drink as much as i can in the morning to make up for it. I just drink water. That’s all i drink. Caffeine keeps me awake at night so i don’t drink it through choice.
i understand what this man is going through, but i see people who are having a much harder time of it.
They can’t choose anything not even what they’d like to do let alone have sex with a woman and bring a new life into the world.
