I don’t know, because I think in the beginning it’s difficult, it’s really difficult to talk to hindsight. Like I said, I’m a peer support ,and what I do is I go in the patient’s rooms and I say, “well, this could be your future,” and no one wants to hear that because everybody wants to walk. And I don’t really know if there is anything you could say to someone who is nearly like first injured, disabled, “it’s going to get easier, it’s going to get better.” Because the truth of the matter is that it will be, but it’s going to be hard at first. So, I think that if I can tell you about anything it would just be like trust the process, just trust it.
