    This contains good advice. One phrase that Jen Brea used that was particularly helpful was, "Acceptance is not the same as giving up." She was referencing the process of finally getting a power wheelchair and how difficult it was, especially on Omar, to deal with that new reality.

    PS. Moderator, I just realized that there's probably a better place for this thread than here. Sorry. Please move wherever.

    It's a 28 minute podcast with a transcription so people can listen or watch.

    I like this quote:
    "Trust your body and your experience, and if your doctor is denying that experience, find a new doctor or contest it."
