Movement, aching joints, weakened muscles. So, I have gone from a transition of being up on a crutch and long legged brace, to riding a scooter for a decade, to in the last year moving to a power chair, hand controls, all to keep from falling with old and aging shoulders and aging muscles. And you know life physically gets tougher, but it gets tougher for everybody. I just think that some of us with the injuries get there a little quicker, it’s a little bit more brutal of a journey sometimes. Even though I’ve got some friends who have had pretty brutal injuries that aren’t spinal injury.
