I mean aging with a spinal cord injury. I have several friends that are upwards of 60 and 70, and I see of the issues they have, arthritis setting in, and things of that nature and shoulders blowing out. Playing sports and having bad shoulders is difficult, so I mean it’s definitely a concern as you age. I try to combat that with technology. I ended up buying a smartdrive on the second hand, which for going to Clemson football games, where it’s very hilly, it saves so much energy. It would be nice if those things were more available. But getting around our yard to clean up after my dog, I bought a powerchair for 150 dollars, so I don’t have to push through the yard to go pickup dog waste and things of that nature. So, I do what I can to protect my shoulders when I can, and just try to fit because aging is a little scary.
