I really needed to hear this today. Someday I want to get out of my wheelchair, too, and I'm still alive even though 50 years ago they said I wouldn't live another year, and they've said it every year since. Believe in yourself! Report

Perfect back-drop music for your video! "Tears"...that's what I had watching your video! How touching and remarkable. Sometimes all we need is someone to believe in us. Big high 5 to your Yoga instructor. He saw you needed help and it appears he DID come up with a plan! You have succeeded! Inspiring isn't even a word that covers your hard work, discipline, and courageous heart. So very happy for you! I am sure you're a new man in so many respects mentally, physically and emotionally! AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! Report
