Tough Love – Living Life as a Paraplegic

Imagine just for a minute 🤔 – imagine going through your day-to-day life, going through ordinary everyday tasks like walking 🚶 to work/school, riding a bike 🚵, running around with your kids, even just simply going to the bathroom 🚽 when your body tells you it’s time. Now imagine waking up one day, in a hospital 🏥, and you can’t feel your legs. You can’t tell when you need to go to the bathroom anymore. You can’t walk anymore. 🚷🚳 Everything you knew, everything you took for granted, is gone. 🛑 You feel helpless. This happened to Brittney when she was just 14 years old. She became a paraplegic from a tragic accident and wasn’t able to anything from the chest down anymore. But now, almost 20 years later, she’s completely independent. The wheelchair ♿ is just another accessory. She doesn’t rely on anyone to help her with anything. She’s a mom (yes she was able to give birth despite being paralyzed), she’s a wife, she’s a friend – she may be in a wheelchair for the rest of her life, but she is far from handicapped. 💪💖
Share her story so others who are forced to live life in a wheelchair can be inspired by Brittney. She is truly one of the strongest people I know. I remember the day I got the call about her accident. I was so scared she was going to die. I didn’t even consider the possibility that she’d never walk again. I truly admire and look up to Brittney. She is someone I’m proud to call a friend, and someone I look up to and respect so much.
