Trading Places

Think about this one before you post.

You have this one chance to trade places with someone.

Who would that be?

And Why?

    This one could have so many answers , it's so hard for just one.

    Probably one of the kids in cancer treatment dying that I saw when had cancer. They should get a chance to enjoy a disease and painless moment in life.

    If I was being selfish , it would be myself at 24 prior to injury when my godchild was small and we were best buds, and i believed life was just starting and the best was ahead. The reason is because I was in best shape of my life and everything had finally came together

    Outside of that I would want to trade places with a doctor treating chronic pain patients knowing what I do now. Reason being just to be able to directly influence helping people in pain

    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.

    Dont know if I could trade places. But like to for a day, so some could feel like i do. Dont really think family and friends can understand what spinal fusion or back surgery can do to a person. But to have fun with it. Like to trade with a major league baseball player. I enjoy the game a lot. Dont play it, But try to go when I can. Just to stand on the field and look up at everyone. Or hit a ball out of the park. That has to be a great feeling. Then tip your hat when you round 3rd base coming down to home.

    Then who would be the MLB player you would want to be?

    For me, its always been a toss up between Don Mattingly and Mickey Mantle (cant you tell I am a Yankee fan)

    One of the best pitchers of all time. I could not even imagine what its like to stand there and see a 95 mph ball go by you. Let alone hit it! Plus he was a class act. He wrote a book called, Miracle Man. Its a good book if you like Ryan. But It really is all about him.

  • If I could, I would trade places with my younger self. I would savor the youth that has slipped into the abyss. I would slow down and actually do the things I always wanted to do. Truly regret is the hardest thing to live with. Love has to be the most important state of being mankind can acquire. When all is said and done, we all just want to be loved. What else is there?
