12 Years And Counting

Journey Filled With Wonders

12 Years man I can’t believe is been 12 years already never thought I would make it this far. There has been many great moments and some emotional rollercoaster back and forward hospital visit in some case had old friends that I haven’t seen in years come to pay their respects one last time in my ICU room, heck I had the same feelings too, there has been multiple-time that I thought this might just be my last visit. After all those years I’m still here.

The journey has never been easy, from brokenhearted to lost loved ones, been through it all. I been depressed, I have laughed, I have cried and I’ve enjoyed every moment of it the good and the bad. We are dealt with a life challenges and the journey will never be easy. Once all the smoke are clear and you come down to reality. You will be presented with two options either you quit and give up on yourself and when you do give up you’re not only giving up on yourself you’re also given up on the people that believe in you and your whole existence to this life that you have been blessed with or pick yourself back up accept the challenges along the way and get ready to embark on your new journey.

Journey of uncertainty that is filled with wonder, excitement but most of all, a journey of love. In order to enjoy this journey sometimes you got to put all the pain behind you and enjoy every little bit of this thing that we call life. Life is not perfect but you will have some perfect moments. You will meet some great and wonderful people along the way and you’ll have some great memories to reflect on someday. Enjoy the journey as much as your destination, there’s always going to be growth, improvement, adversity. You just got to take it all in and do what’s right and continue to grow, continue to live in the moment.

share your struggles

share your struggles because we all have one. No one’s life is perfect. I’m sharing my struggle not for you to feel sad or sorry for me, but for you to know that we all have been there, you don’t know the type of impact you can make in someone else’s life when you share your struggles and the effect’s it too you to get you where you are today . Everyone has failed at least one or more times in their life, but those  who are determine failure can never stand in their way of succeeding.

No matter what struggle you face today. Whatever you lack off, could it be that you can’t pass the exams that you have been preparing for your whole life. Hard time finding a job, don’t know how your going to feed your kids or yourself, relationship problems or you have some kind of sickness, injuries , years of battles with cancer, diabetes, We’ve all had days and maybe even years when life just doesn’t seem to be going our way! I had days and years where I felt like nothing was working for me and everything seem to be going wrong. Knowing the person that I am, giving up has never been an option my character will never allow me, it has always been stronger then my circumstances.

In life we can’t always control what happens to us, but it is mine and also your choice to control how we choose to respond. Complaining will never give you any results. The devil will always try to pull you down in the moments of weakness. As long as you choose to keep a positive attitude your Struggles will always lead to Strength. In those moments of weakness if you turn to God and give him thanks for all his blessing throughout your life, and pray to ask for his guidance, he’ll give you more strength, faith and perseverance when you let him in regardless of what you’re going through. There might be times when You may feel like you’re going through this struggle all alone, always remember once you let him in your life he will be by your side to the end as long as you don’t lose hope in him.

Paralyzed men move legs with new non-invasive spinal cord stimulation

Five men with complete motor paralysis were able to voluntarily generate step-like movements thanks to a new strategy that non-invasively delivers electrical stimulation to their spinal cords, according to a new study funded in part by the National Institutes of Health. The strategy, called transcutaneous stimulation, delivers electrical current to the spinal cord by way of electrodes strategically placed on the skin of the lower back. This expands to nine the number of completely paralyzed individuals who have achieved voluntary movement while receiving spinal stimulation, though this is the first time the stimulation was delivered non-invasively. Previously it was delivered via an electrical stimulation device surgically implanted on the spinal cord.

In the study, the men’s movements occurred while their legs were suspended in braces that hung from the ceiling, allowing them to move freely without resistance from gravity. Movement in this environment is not comparable to walking; nevertheless, the results signal significant progress towards the eventual goal of developing a therapy for a wide range of individuals with spinal cord injury.
