  • Apr 19 2013: I was put in a wheelchair by a surgeon who got the job wrong. Can't sue them in this country (Australia).

    For the first year I wanted to die. My Dad had taught us well, and that we must always do unto others and good things will come to you and your spirit.

    I took training and am now a voluntary Disability (and older people) Advocate. I could see how awful things are (disrespect, ignorance) for disabled people. If I do say so myself I have become strong and I strive to be unbeatable in my quest for better conditions, certainly respect. My supporters tell me I must have God on my side ! Lovely eh ?
    Am a great believer in Karma and know for sure it has come my way.

    My heart sings with joy when I secure a positive outcome. I now live my life with purpose...to have lived a life WITHOUT compassion/passion/purpose ... one may as well NOT have lived at all.

      Apr 19 2013: Dear Karmel
      Sorry for what happened to you, I know people all around the word who suffer from heterogeneous physical disabilities but they are quite successful people. I am sure you are one of those people…
      There are numerous lecturers in the area of self-development, regarding the fact that you mentioned there are some difficulties for disable people…maybe it is the time to have a lecturer for disable people..
      Best Regards
