I broke my back two weeks before I graduated from undergraduate school. My greatest fear was, "what was I going to do for the rest of my life?" But, that would have been a fear I would have had anyhow, because the degree I had was not very specific, and did not lead to any particular vocation. I would have been worried about that anyhow, and I think that helped me, understanding that the timing of this accident was fortuitous in the sense that I was making a major change in my life, now I had to deal with a disability on top of it. But I was still making that major change, and so it helped me through that process.
