It is not a pleasing thing to be a crippled teenager Adolescence is hard enough in normal circumstances but when you add on other struggles it becomes a whole other world It was as if a cow came falling from heaven and landed smack on top of me One minute I was running catching and having a great game and the next minute I had doctors looking all over me Football was an expected sport for most boys in the town I grew up in and if you played well you were indestructible or so we thought During my eighth grade year I was having a wonderful game and I too thought I was capable of anything It was a high pass that required a massive leap into the air The pass was caught but I hadnt thought about my landing yet But oh I would be fine I always was until this landing I came down on my arm as though it would have still broken had it been made of steel The popping of the bone alone was enough to turn your stomach That unfortunate day changed life as I had known it for a while Yes my voice still squeaked and my hormones ran strong but for the most part my days never changed The thought of being able to move any part of my right arm had left my thought process for the time being It was the most awful thing a thirteen-year-old boy could possibly imagine I could not write I could not eat and as for taking a normal shower I had no hope I felt like a helpless baby left to die Life around the house was not so great either Every day father would come home complaining about his terrible day at work and how the old man in charge wasnt paying a penny more than he was required But it was not just the boss
