I sometimes get very mad, a lot of times at myself.  I mean, I’ll get frustrated with something, and that’ll get me really mad because I can’t do something, or I’m trying to do something and it breaks, whatever the case might be.  And so, I get very angry with that, the limitations sometimes just really bug the heck out of me.  If I’m trying to pick something up with a grabber, a reacher, and you can’t get it, it just sometimes gets really frustrating.  And I think that, although everyone tells me that I handled the whole being in a wheelchair well, and I guess I do.  There are times—I think everyone goes through it—there’s times when you’re just like, “Jesus Christ, when is this going to change?”—Or, “When is it going to come up with that cure?”
