My Story...
Hi I’m Alex and I’m a marine engineer, while working out in the Caribbean in 2006 during some leisure time I went swimming and my whole life changed in an instant... I hit my head on a sand bank and broke my neck. The vertebrae at c5 fractured and c6 broke into three parts one of which damaged my spinal cord, leaving me paralysed from the chest down. More

“To live only once… but with hope”

You are born.. that alone is beautiful, the baby the life preserved within, the hope and opportunity of a future untold…. with it comes pain, the birth itself is torture, the pain unbearable, but that the beauty and fragile being that is the body of the mother can bear, the pain the agony within… to create that which each and everyone once was.. a new born life given, to which we each live our own way.

Direction and education given but free will and freedom of independence as you grow the way ahead, is yours to take.

Be all that you are, before all that you are is taken, for this life you only live once, live it your way… be you

Independence??
Sometimes in life you get lost…

If you are lost, you can always be found, or find your way again….

My life was taken away from me.. now I see it’s my purpose to get it back again

Find a purpose, and you will find yourself

Be you as it’s one thing nobody else can

Two days back

Jennifer changed my catherter

My life, my little dog

Everyday seems harder and harder just getting thru.. the pain through my legs the aches in my back, my freedom completely taken from me, reliant on someone for everything and anything I need. The pain the frustration… it’s real, it all stems from one day, one accident, one mistake that I re live each day everyday, there are people living a life like mine…. but they are not me… the way my mind processes this I push all my emotion through my little dog, 24hrs a day all day he’s by my side… helping me find a light inside me every day, I breathe but I break down more and more each day…. 11 years and counting

My life my mistake… my pain

The little life that I protect next to me by my side everyday

He keeps me going, my little dog Dexter
The happiness I hold inside

Be all you can be, because one day all you can be will be gone!

A time to be born…

And a time for each of us to die

Dec 14th 2006, was not my day to go…

Still here as time ticks bye

Running on empty

Fighting an impossible fight locked in a body unable to move… mind alive through time I wait for what may never come, torture of the mind watching, feeling the body fail with a light inside each day harder to find…

Another day…. maybe, life does find a way
