I am his primary caregiver, we have attendant care 4 nights a week for 3 hours, the rest is left up to me. Every day I find it harder and harder to take care of him. Worst of all, he is a very cold hearted person with a very dry sense of humor.
As I sat there in my wheelchair, I scanned over the reasons and was blown away by the fact that there were quadriplegics, and I was even more shocked to see paraplegics.
I was an arrogant, new spinal cord injury who was enraged that someone would give up on life because of the exact same ailment as myself.
Jackson however has retained movement in his arms and shoulders.
He can bend his elbows, but he can’t straighten it.
I am 20 years old and have been dating my fiance, Chris 34 a C6-C7 incomplete quadriplegic for almost a year now. I am not in good health myself, but I feel like I don’t have the right to complain. But I do admire him so much for what he has overcome in his life.
