I posted a pic in my initial description. There are a few more pics in that same album. Not sure what other proof you would want, a current shot of the scars? :)

Scars would be really cool! :D
But not necessary.

Side question, did "I came back from dead after being shot" help get you your new wife?

Not sure how I got the new wife, I thought I would never remarry. Maybe I am just a lovable guy. :p

Just to be clear, what do you think the restrictions on firearms should be? I picked up the drug test one, but anything else?

sonic_seven1 karma

I don't know how to say it any clearer than I already did.

How long did it take to fully recover?

sonic_seven4 karma

You don't ever really recover from an injury like mine. It took 18 months before the doctors said "you won't get any better than you are today". I still have all sorts of medical problems from this but I have gotten used to it for the most part.

Could you explain in detail what it felt like to be shot?

sonic_seven2 karma

See one of the replies I made elsewhere on this page.

Have you noticed a significant difference in the way you are treated since your paralysis? Do you date or are you in a relationship?

sonic_seven10 karma

Yes. My first wife grew tired of the things I was not able to do and she eventually left me. My current wife is the definition of awesome and amazing. The general public is nice about it although non-crippled people love to park in the handicap parking spots. Grrrr.

Hello...i have little question,i know maybe will be strange but...when you was dead,you saw something?Like..God..or..i dont know..something like this? (sry for bad english)

sonic_seven3 karma

I did not see anything because I wasn't really dead, my heart just stopped. I did not know my heart had stopped until I read the surgery transcripts.

So what's your view on the whole Lance Armstrong thing?

sonic_seven11 karma

I have no opinion on that. I have no interest in it and as such I have extremely limited knowledge of it, only what I see in a passing headline.

I am a Christian but I am not interested in arguments about beliefs.

Uh, why even bring this up? Pretty bizarre.

Parallel example: "I eat rats every morning for breakfast but I am not interested in arguments about breakfast food."

Reddit is known for being anti-religion. I am not ashamed of my faith and will talk about it with anyone who wants to, but in a civilized manner. I knew that in the course of my responses that it would become obvious that I am a Christian, so I stated that I would not be interested in arguing about it but I am fine with discussing it.
