In 2016, I became permanently paralyzed from the chest down requiring emergency life-saving surgery. I was deathly ill with a rare staph infection that compressed my spinal cord. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, hypothyroidism, autoimmune disease, autonomic dysreflexia, and suffered from life-threatening complications due to my catastrophic spinal injury. My body was destroyed and beyond repair
I spent roughly 3 months in a hospital/rehab facility being inundated with antibiotics, drugs, painkillers, and rudimentary physical therapy. I was given zero chance of ever walking again and was told I would need medications for the rest of my life.
Today, I am no longer paralyzed. In fact, within the first 100 days after emergency surgery, I walked unassisted – just as I predicted in the ICU. My diagnosed illnesses and diseases have been resolved, even the mystery lethal infection that months of powerful antibiotics could not cure.
