Another no brainer.If you can't walk,you can't run or flee a burning building without assistance,for starters.

I certainly don't want it to happen but there could be worse things. My uncle has lost both his legs and I'm constantly amazed at the stength of his spirit. His perseverance through not only not being able to walk but losing his vision as well is a source of inspiration to me.

I can barely walk as it is, I am always hurting my foot, leg, ankle or something so just loosing that ability wouldn't be that bad.

I'm embarrassed to say that as a kid, I was so lazy that I'd pass someone in a wheel-chair and think, "Gee, that isn't such a bad way to live-- having someone to push you around all day." Now, of course, the thought of not being able to walk feeds into my fear of becoming dependent on others for the most basic necessities of life. Not as scary as going blind, but scary enough.

Turns out I am afraid of this. When I was 18 I went car-surfing with Some buddies. This was something that I did a lot, very Stupid in retrospect and shows how Lucky I was back then. 99.9% of the time I was Able to do this without incident, but one time I fell. My friend, who was Driving, went over a Speed bump. I remember thinking; "Oh, f#ck, I'm going to Get bumped off the car and Run over." Luckily, that didn't happen and we made it Past with no incident. Just when I was Thinking about what a Great driver Mel was, he rounded a Corner. The car turned a sharp Left, I kept going straight. I flew off the car, and rolled about 15 feet or so. My friends said it looked Like something out of a Movie. When I stopped rolling, I could not move Anything below my neck. My friends thought I was dead. I heard them talking, panicked about What had happened While Mel was trying to come Up with a Cover.
I'm am not sure why I could not signal my legs or arms To move. I think it was the shock of the Impact or something, but as I lay on that ground I thought I was paralyzed. It was one of the Scariest moments of my Life. I lay there wondering Why I didn't Die. Wishing I would, but Knowing that I would not, at Least not from that. I don't know how long I lay there, it felt like an Hour but I know It couldn't have been that long. Just long enough for me to Process what I thought had Happened. One of the worse parts, Aside from What I thought was permanent immobility,was that I knew I would have to admit what A Dumbass I was when People asked what had Happened. Scariest of all, I thought that I would be in a Chair for the rest of My life. No control, No freedom, no Movement. It was one of the worst moments of My entire life.
Luckily, it was short lived. Eventually I was able to get the Feeling back in my Arms and legs and was Able to move and Walk within minutes. I was not completely unscathed, I did seriously injure my knee and to This day, it still Gives me grief sometimes. On bad days, I have to use a Cane, though this is Rare. When hiking, I always make sure to use a Walking stick or I'll be hating life the Next day.
I wish I could say that I learned my Lesson and walked Away from the event A Wiser and more thoughtful Gris. I Wish I could say that. A week later, I was surfing again. It took several More years before My false sense of Invincibility wore off. I try to be a lot More careful these days. And I thank God himself, that I can walk Again because it just as easily could have turned out Drastically different.

I apply the same reasoning here that I did for blindness.

An automobile accident at 18 took away my abilty to walk. Life as a farmer, carpenter, and man who lived by the strength in my back gave way to spinal cord injury. I am a quadriplegic. Being smart, charming, competitive, and bold became gifts--unknown before disability struck native "strengths." Necessity is the "mother fucker" of invention.

I've been everywhere. Loved women, nature, dogs, kids and life. Been blessed to try dozens of careers, live in 10 states, grow gardens, make friends, build businesses, and take immense risks. There have been wins and losses; I can't say which taught more. Would I choose life in a chair? No. Did I choose to live? No! My body kept going, I'm making the best of it.

And honestly, I was scaired shitless as a teenager/instant "grown up." Then I started learning, dating, drinking, playing, and college opened the door to freedom.

It's something I think about sometimes. I was in a wheelchair when I was in my early 20s, and thanks to prayer, the wheelchair has been long out of the picture. It is something that I am very grateful for, and looking at the here and now, I think I am pretty healthy. God's been very good to me.

The thought of not being able to walk is a little scary, simply because your independence would be gone, unless you had a really good strong support group, and that's not always easy to find. It would be very hard to depend on someone else when a person had been self-sufficient for so long.

Not being able to walk would suck but it's not really scary. What happened to make you not be able to walk is probably scary as hell to the person that can't walk. On the bright side you could get all kinds of sympathy sex from hot chicks. Unless your dick don't work. Then just go kill yourself!! (Twice)
