I don’t think I was ever angry in a sense, not angry at spinal cord injury, maybe angry at some of the situation. Some of the encounters that I had, whether it be something that took extra-long, somewhere that I couldn’t get into, someone who didn’t respond to me helpfully or correctly out in public, or something like that. And I guess I can honestly say some of those times may have been frustrating, but the anger I think is where you put your focus on. So, I never put my focus on those people, or those things, or just, and I allowed myself to turn it inside and say “well, Jeremy, what can you do to make it better? What can you do to help the situation?” And because of that, it helped minimize a lot of my anger towards disability.

So, I never put my focus on those people, or those things, or just, and I allowed myself to turn it inside and say “well, Jeremy, what can you do to make it better?
