    Thats amazing that you survived. Any chance of regaining movement?

    Good quote by Arnold. It seems to sum up your situation quite well.

    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!!!

    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.

    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..
    Good Luck

    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

    Hey guys I went to threapy yesterday and I did electro's where they shock the muscle to help it move.. Well I knew I had movement in my left leg but with the electro's it got some movement in the right going too.. So it was pretty good... Just letting you guys know the good news..
