Bro don't even worry about it.. I'm having more fun now to be honest..I always lifted before... Can't stop now... Now I got the excuse not to work legs... hahhaa... Plus I'm doing wheelchair racing so I gotta get back in shape so I can win a marthon...

Going through an intersection lady ran a red light t boned me I rolled my truck once... The truck ended up on top of my back... Kind of a crazy accident...

Thats amazing that you survived. Any chance of regaining movement?
Good quote by Arnold. It seems to sum up your situation quite well.

Yeah definatly amazing I survived luckly 3 kids saw the whole thing and lifted my truck off me and pulled me out... Also I didn't have one cut on me that's the most amazing part.. Thank god for those kids also... I actually have gotten some movement back in my left leg and a ton of feeling... Just gotta keep pushin!!!

You should become a motivational speaker. You've experienced a major change in your life that most people would consider tragic, but you're so positive about the future. Thats inspiring. Keep pushin!!!

Man i feel for you bro... Lucky your alive thats all that counts... In august i got into a similiar accident these guys did a sharp turn hit me and my friend and our car flipped over twice. Lucky the only thing i broke was my meta carpal bone in my thumb but i got 3rd degree burns in my hand because it had came out the window the emt said i was lucky my arm didn't come off...Some guy had to pull me and my friend out when the car was upside down... In such a bad accident me and my friend didn't even really get hurt........Lucky your alive man good luck in whatever you persue....

Hehe i thought you meant entire body paralyzed...wondered how you were going to lift
We had a wheelchair class in the Swedish championships. Only 1 guy entered but i think it´s fucking awsome! Shows you dont hafto sit in a corner just cause you cant use your legs.

Yup... you are really very strong indeed. Thus do not give up on yourself because we did not either.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Do not stop believing. No one can make you stop believing except yourself.

This kid is amazing http://www.coltwynn.com ... It's amazing he's in this good of shape... Hopefully I'll be ready for a marthon next year... It's tough to train outside in the Boston area cause of the winter but I got a thing I can use in my garage to practice...

hey bro that is a great positive attitude!!! i'm not paralyzed, but i do have some physical limitations.. i always trained, but after my accident i didn't think that i would ever train again. it's because of guys like you that share your inspirational stories, and all the great bro's on AR here that i overcame any obstacle that came my way. keep that attitude, and keep training you're an inspiration to us all..

i know i am not one to say what we should have here on this board, but the admin might feel as though adding a forum for physical disabilities could be beneficial. My grandmother had her legs taken off above the knee for medical reasons, a forum like that might have helped me help her. with almost 9000 members it is quite possible that many of our members could be or have a family member/close friend who is in a similiar boat as the author of this thread. Boston bobby, if you don't mind how old are you, amazing story... good luck...I have never really trained legs very often, because of this i swear i will come this week.. actually thank you.. sometimes the strenght of others makes ourselves stronger

I'm 19... I was 18 when I was hurt... I'll post some pics once I find my digtal camera.. I know it's around my house somewhere...

Hey Bro best of luck with you training. Im sorry to hear what happened! Your a great inspiration to all of us!! I speak for us all on this board to wish you luck and hope everything works out great for you!
12-02-2002, 10:25 AM #26
Great attitude Bro .. I wish you the best of luck and all success, which I am positive you will have. With your attitude and outlook, good things will happen. You are a definite motivation and inspiration to all of us here at AR.
