Paraplegic and confined to a wheelchair but Thaivisa's top poster is "still standing" in Thailand

Recommended Posts

I take away 2 things....pick up drivers’ driving habits and corruption....

 

both still persist and won’t change anytime soon....

Quite speechless / wordless after that.... A humbling read.

 

To still see the positive side of life shows a special type of character, and what a special lady Colin's Wife seems to be.

Well folks i have had a quite interesting, in fact crazy life since 1996.

When Rooster contacted me about visiting and doing an article, i thought what the hell, go for it.

There are a few members here who think i am a fake paraplegic, so i agreed to the interview just to prove them wrong.

As can be seen i held nothing back, it is a very accurate description of my life in Thailand.

c'mon, level with us !  do you ever use that winch to help some of the overweight ladies up onto that bed ?

 

just kiddin' ........  I would be seriously feeling sorry for myself if badly injured.   keep going strong !

Well deserved Colin. 

A special mention of admiration goes to your lovely wife for standing by your side through all the ups and downs.

I too feel like I am very lucky with my wife, but hope we'll never have to test our relationship like you had to.

All the best to the both of you

What would be the point in using the winch to get any size lady on my bed?

My tackle dont work any more, and being catheterized it would be impossible any way.

 

Also what would be the point in feeling sorry for myself?

After being told i would never walk again, yes i did feel sorry for myself, went into a very deep depression, only got passed that with the help of my wife.

I have always been a positive person and always will be, i try to overcome every hurdle placed in front of me.

Sometimes i get very angry, when i cant do something, and have to ask for help.

first part was a joke...since laughter is the best medicine.

I have had hurdles in life as well.... and of course got down at first.  Like all the others here, I applaud you

overcoming the tough parts.

More power to your elbow, sir.

 

As others have said, life's peccadilloes fade into insignificance sometimes.

Collin when I asked for help to help some poor school girl you were the first one to respond . The others who responded were just ...my hand is in my pocket ... well they never took it out . You were a genuine person .God Bless you Collin , you are a real human being .

 

Cheers mate
