I have survived what most say was impossible or nearly impossible.

I was in a construction accident some 15 years ago and fell a little over three stories and broke my neck and back both in multiple places.

Anyway to make a long story short, I recovered in a pretty short time actually went back to work even though they said that would not happen, as I would be confined to a wheelchair (wrong again on their part) but finally, its starting to catch up with me. The pain is starting to make my life a living hell to say the least, but thats ok, i'll deal with it whatever it takes, I have allot to years and still went on to raise my daughter so I am grateful and one of the lucky ones no matter what is in my future for my.

Now I have epilepsy and I hate that worse that the fall who would have guessed that would have ended such a colorful career? Not me (lol) still blessed!


  • That's awesome that you beat the odds. But that rough that you have epilepsy now. Still it's good you're around for your daughter. Did you have spine surgery also? Take care. Charry
