I do have some levels of frustration, especially with some things that happened around the house, or things I'd like to see different, or things I'd like to change, but you know what, sometimes you can't sweat the small shit, you just have to go with it. So, I try to overlook a lot of things, and get up and enjoy my day. This may sound strange to some people but, you know, when you get this injury, there' not a lot of people that would like hanging out around you to begin with, and if you throw on top of it the fact that you're angry all the time, or not pleasant to be around, nobody likes an angry or disgruntled disabled person; it's not going to help. It's not going to help your situation, so you know I, you know, I sometimes have some sleep issues, which make me a little edgier some days than others, but you just, you know I would say on the most part, I'm not very angry at all—it's kind of my personality.
