    It's All In Your Perspective

    I remember about 8 years ago when I was diagnosed with the hepatitis C virus. Needless to say, this seemed like a really bad situation to me. After all, it means that although I may not die quickly, I still could eventually see an unhappy ending in my life. Next I found out that...

    Disabled for unknown reasons

    but it has changed my life not only physical but mentally. I think I become this way for many reasons. Some are clear. Others are not. But I do believe everything happens for a reason. This is the path that I'm suppose to be on. God only knows.

    I Would Not Have Survived

    It sounds weird to say this, but I am glad my dad was so tough on me. I am positive I would not have survived my life if he had raised me to be a little wuss. Granted, he didn't have to break bones to get his point across!
