I’m George. As you might have guessed from the title, I can pop a wheelie. To do that requires a wheelchair. I’ve been doing that for…okay, for a long time. I’ve been married to my best friend even longer.
I have MS and am a T10 Paraplegic. People have asked me to share my story and my life, and maybe you will find it interesting or maybe even helpful to you. I’m a husband, father, friend, peer connection volunteer, and neighbor. I do it all from a wheelchair.
MS and Paraplegia, who are they? They are creatures who invaded my body, uninvited I might add, years ago. – MS is a cranky creature who goes by initials but has a longer name. She is unpredictable and takes many forms. When she joined me, she took the her most unusual form, but she can do all the things she can do in someone else, as well – Paraplegia is a much gentler lady, more refined and quite even tempered. She is the reason I can’t walk, but in most other ways she leaves me alone. She and I get into our wheelchair every morning and enjoy our time together, unless she decides to add a bit of extra tingle to my lower body, which is not my favorite thing.
