On My Feet Again

That's a picture of me from before my injury.  Now I use a wheelchair for ALL of my locomotion.

There are places I can't go and things I can't do that are important to me. I really miss having horses in my life.

I currently am and have been doing physical therapy since the injury.  A Brainport will remap my vestibular system to my tongue.

A Brainport (which costs $10k usd) is my best bet for being able to walk again.  Brainport is the only object that does this.  It's an item that hangs around  my neck with a wired thing that goes into my mouth.  There's a good explanation and pictures on the How  Stuff Works website.  You can see it here: https://science.howstuffworks.com/brainport2.htm.
