I have to wonder if this time I've put my goals up far to high. I want to be able to do things for myself like living on my own. I just read a story about a C-6 quadriplegic that lives in her own, having a baby, going to school, and drives! I hate to say this but I'm jealous. I want some independence so bad but I don't know how to get that for myself. I know I have to start to build up my strength, try to get more movement, and start to try to do more than what others do for me.
The first thing I have to do is get this pressure sore healed before I can do anything. After that I need to lose some of my weight so that maybe I can start to learn how to transfer myself over. These will need to happen before I even get started on my other items on my list. I will not put the whole list here just in case something's don't happen the way I want them too. I have got to start acting my whole age because if I don't I may never learn to take care of myself.
