Re: “A tragedy changes how high school wrestling is officiated in North Carolina

Hey Luke.

I have a similar story. I was recently married with a 4 year old daughter and had a lesion form on my spinal cord from some unexplained auto-immune reaction. Ended up on a ventilator but was eventually able to get off it. I now am paralyzed but I am able to get around in a wheelchair and I am independent (for now). I'm fighting constant UTIs some of them life-threaten because they are so resistant to antibiotics.

At my lowest I was all alone in an extended-stay hotel, divorced, crying nightly thinking "I don't want to live like this. I'd been better off if I just died." You're probably right, but only after you accept your fate can you live. It's not fair, it's worst then anyone close to you will ever know, and there ain't shit you can do about it. Accept that pile of shit, and move on brother. You can and will do it. Don't be a big pussy like I was and lose 5 years of your life, trust me!
