To try everything. I know in rehab they had you check boxes of what you used to do. Your life is different, try everything. I concentrate a lot on adaptive sports. I didn’t play any of these sports before, but I found one that I loved and it really got me out of depression. I played tennis when I was maybe five-years-old but it was one of the biggest things while I was out of work and trying to figure out what I wanted to do. I tried everything, I rode on the Chattahoochee, I did adaptive golf, played basketball downstairs at Shepherd Center. Try everything that you can. If you can try traveling try it. My first trip, we went to Cincinnati as a test run, you’re not going to know until you actually try it, and that doesn’t go for somebody that is injured it goes for anybody. The more you try you are going to find out either hey you love it, or hey you don’t like it, but if you don’t get out and try, you’re not going to know.
