My chair is my friend, my chair, I need, it’s a tool.  It’s not that thing that everybody’s looking at, and it’s like, now I need this chair to displace myself, to take care of my stuff. It’s gotten easier managing my body, I swear to God—I’m on a schedule—the human body is amazing.  Like, I’m on, every four hours, I don’t have, I don’t need a watch, every four hours my body tells me, “Oops, it’s time to go do that thing.” So, you know, I got to go, you know, drain or cath, catheterize, I got to go, you know, to drain, self-cath, every four hours. Every other day it’s like, “Whoops, its like, bowl program time,” and I don’t need a clock, I don’t need a chart on the refrigerator.  It’s just your body starts adapting, and that’s the wonderful thing about life that, you know, it compensates, it gives you something else.  You just got to have strong enough sticker on to find out what it has, you know, waiting for you.
