Consider yourself very blessed, live your life, believe me I envy you. If I could take one day in my life back, it would be the day I first injured my back, that was July 17,1989. But I cant go back only forward.
So go forward, there are many things out in this world you can do. Your identity will come along with you living your life to the fullest.
Take care, sorry I forgot to tell you who I am I am nini53/Kathy
