New Life  


This page is dedicated to the many different things that have gone on in my life since my accident. 


Below you can find lots of information about how life was during the first year after my accident, how things progressed from there, random update pages, and some pictures. 

I know reading about my life is not the most amazing thing in the world (and I'm not trying to say it is), but it's just a look at the life of ONE quadriplegic to see how life can go on. I'm just one person, but I know there are MANY more very similar to myself.


First off, here is some information about some of the stuff that I encountered during the first year of my injury:

First Year



After reading about some of the things I experienced during the first year, you might be curious to find out how some things turned out during the next few years. Click below to find out how things progressed past the first year:

As Time Went On



So, if you have already read about my "first year" and how some things have been "as time went on," you know the basics of my life now -- especially concerning my disability. 

The following section on this page just has some random updates on various events/occasions/etc. I might add to this section as more interesting things take place, but probably not much or often (obviously I haven't even finished the pages listed below yet).


*sorry, this section is still under construction*


       Book & Magazine --    2002 & 2003

             Joni & RSJ        -- July/Sept, 2003

         4th anniversary   --  July 4th, 2004


But there are pictures below... =)

And basically this is the end of the main portion of my web site (there is still a "joke section" that is mostly unrelated to my injury, but as for "my story" this is about all I'll ever write on here). I have gotten many requests to update on how life has been since I made the previous pages, but I honestly don't want to make another web page every time I do something. So this is my idea:

Below is a link to a separate journal that I will try to update as significant things happen in the future. I definitely do not promise to update often, but I will try if there's anything really important. As for this web site, for the most part it should stay the same since my story shouldn't change. I don't plan to update on here anymore, so here is the link that should tell if anything else important has gone on:


The Rest of My Life


that's about it  =)




Do you have any suggestions, comments, or other things you would like to learn about?  Click here to email me! 

I don't mind getting e-mails, but I have to warn that I can be really, really bad at responding a lot of the time. I sincerely wish I had the time to write everyone back quickly and answer everyone's questions thoroughly, but sometimes it's just impossible. (If you have ever written me and I never responded [or if this happens in the future], please read my sincere apology.)

But feel free to write if you want & I'll try my best to respond. Please don't be offended if I take forever, or, at worst, never get back to you. I really will try my best.


Don't forget the jokes, links, and pictures :)
