I WAS SHOT IN THE BACK, PARALYZED! I was married for about 12 years when Nathan Aimes came in my shop on Oct 3 1997 around 5pm J.R. Lock & Key. I been a professional locksmith since 1986, anyway Nathan was showing us a gun he had purchased earlier from an unknown person. It went off and the bullet struck me in the back entering my spinal cord at t-9. I looked my father in the eyes and said to him "I been shot". It felt like a belt tightening around my waist, really tight. I thought at first I'M gonna die. It didn’t register with my family and friends at first, then the gun went off again striking the showcase opposite of me. My ears were ringing from the bangs! Then my dad hollered out really loud "what the hell is going on"? I slowly started falling when my sister n law Missy came to check on me, she was sitting at the desk when it happened. I'm holding the counter as I slowly fall to the floor, and then walked in my wife and three kids. The pain started from my waist and worked its way down my legs David Banks was calling 911 around that time.I remember Nick the man that shot me was still talking about football like it was business as Usual. The ambulance came and I remember thinking to myself please don’t let me be paralyzed. IM at the hospital now laying on the table in pain and crying, i'm not the type of person that likes to cry. I kept asking the doctors please give me something for pain. It seemed like hours before I could even communicate with anyone then the doctor gave me the bad news your paralyzed. Long story short my wife left about a year after the accident. Some people can’t handle it and it was best for both of us and the kids not arguing all the time. We get alone fine now. I need more time to update my site. Its June 08, 2013. I'll be back when the pain eases. 12/19/1012 you are helping me cope, just by reading.

What are you doing to help yourself, better yet what are you doing to help others? These are the 2 questions I asked myself when I got shot in 94. After years of work I am walking again. It did not come easy and each day I woke up and asked myself those two questions. Have a purpose, make that purpose the reason to move on. Find something that takes the pain away, and dont go assuming Dr's know best, people having being choosing their own medicine for years find what works for you! It is possible to have a life and you are the only person that can make that life. Remember how easy it is to push people away that are only trying to help you improve your quality of life. Im proof that it can be done, they told me I would never walk again.....

Jeffrey--I feel privileged to have the opportunity to get to know you. I am sorry to hear that you are having a bad time of it lately, and hope that your pain eases soon.

Living with chronic pain conditions changes everything about your life; it's difficult for those who don't have one to understand.

If I can be of any help to you, please let me know.

Take care of yourself,

Melissa

Thank you for your support. Doctors said I would never walk again because I was shot and paralyzed. There's no cure for SCI, so I started teaching myself how to write better, I have a long way to go. Its the only way I can help others. I was trying to pray for healing instead of actually doing something that helps me heal, mentally and physically. Right now the spasms, pain and sores will only allow me to do so much. One day at a time. I over did it at first and now I'm paying for that. Learn as much as you can about your injury and disease, Then you can help yourself and others with similar complications. Back to listening and learning as much English and Science I can, is a big part of my life now. I posted pictures of my sores, Made Videos. BBL

Anonymous! There is no cure for Spinal Cord Injury. If you still can't feel or move your legs one year after your injury 99.999% chances you're paralyzed for life, until scientist can regenerate the spinal cord.

@Theshadowsmoon Yes chronic pain conditions changes everything about your life. Try to depend less on medicine as possible. I have the same problem. Meds Don't work as well for chronic pain. When the pain is down do as much constructive activities as possible, until the pain goes back up. You dont need to over do it. ttyl

You wrote: What are you doing to help yourself, better yet what are you doing to help others? I'm donating and replying to others and I built this site before I started getting worst. I have home and nurse care coming everyday, what else do you expect me to do? The spinal cord wont regenerate, Im paralyzed for life. My complications are worst than yours, I have extreme spasms, pain and wound care. Staying alive is my goal for now.

Hi there, I would like to subscribe for this webpage to take latest updates,
therefore where can i do it please help out.

Your comment was received but I dont see it on here. If you want to subscribe I will have to change the format. My health at this time is not very good, my time to reply and change the format is limited to minutes. Changing the site at this time is almost impossible. You can see that I started this blog not knowing what I was doing. I taught myself. When I started my pain and spasms must have been down some, less complicated. my ability to reason and logic was slightly better than now.. I desperately needed to share my story and find some relief and support so I forced myself and fought the pain and spasms and did my best and had to stop earlier than I wanted to. I will try to change the format and update more often. Thank You for replying. If I didn't correct my grammar its because Im in pain and have to rest. Ty

What happened to Nick? Why is he not compensating you for the accident that was clearly his fault??

Jeffrey Ramsey said...

Sorry for the delay. Nick didn't have much money, and no property when he shot me, The saying is true: You cant get blood from a turnip. Be back later, ok?
