Oh, Christopher Reeve

How must it have felt for a completely ACTIVE dude to lose the ability to wave even his hand? It must've been like he lost himself in that fall. It must've felt like a horrible trick...like the worst thing that might happen. Ever.

I haven't been in this much pain in years. Road rash. It's just road rash. I haven't been shot or maimed, really. It could be so much worse.

Lesson Learned:
1. Wear knee pads
2 There is a moment, subconscious or not, in so many situations when I think we have a choice: be free OR chose to fear. Yes, I think fear is a choice. There was a moment rolling down that hill when I think I allowed myself to be afraid and that's when I fell. It happens in relationships, sports, jobs, etc. It kills. Fear kills.

Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.
I really don't understand how people in pain on those hospital infomercials can be soooo sweet. I am grouchy as a green trash-dwelling muppet.
