I learned about the place that I moved into with my wife thanks to the company website that I looked at. I am wheelchair-bound, so is not easy for me to just hop in the car and go to quite a lot of different apartment complexes to view them. Even if someone offered to take me to visit the different places, it would take many hours longer than it would take someone else who is not in a wheelchair. So it is really nice to have the ability to see a walk-through of a variety of apartments thanks to the internet.
I did not find myself in a wheelchair until I was 12 years old. I was able to run walk and play just like any other child prior to that. One night, my mom and dad decided to take me out for ice cream. A drunk driver hit us. Me, mom, and dad all made it out of the accident, but I was badly hurt. I spent quite a few months in the hospital. After I was released from the hospital, I had to go through physical therapy for the next year. While I did gain back some use of my legs, I was unable to walk on my own. It may seem strange to say this, but I am lucky that it happened to me as a younger person because it means that I was able to adapt to it a bit better than someone who is 30, 40 or 50.
Life has been pretty good to me overall. I am married to a great lady. My parents are alive and very healthy. I’ve made so many nice friends. I can’t ask for much more than that. I have the basics, and that is what is most important. I also have a fantastic job and a nice house, too.
