Well my caregiver has basically been there 24/7, whenever there’s been a problem, whenever there’s been somebody not to show up, whatever. I’ve had an emergency or relapse of any kind, watched my skin, because that’s one of the biggest problems with this injury is a skin breakdown. He makes me do things I don’t want to do, like my exercises and my different care that I have to do. And, you know, if it wasn’t for him being as strong as he is, I would probably overpower the other person, and you know, let a lot of these things go, which are not healthy for me. But I probably would have done that, you know I probably wouldn’t have got out of bed as much, would have laid around a lot more, would have made some poor choices, and because of that, I haven’t. And, I’ve been able to, you know, change my life, move on, and you know, try to be successful at something.
