IAmA guy who broke his spine and doesn't walk again. AMA
I just saw that the AmA about the guy who broke his spine and walks again (http://redd.it/1bbt3r) seems to interest a lot of people, so I thought it might be
a good opportunity to collect Karmainteresting to share an other point of view.
I broke my neck in August 2011 (C 5/6) when I jumped on a bank of sand in the Danube. The result is a traumatic spinal core injury, which lead to a complete paralysis of most parts of my body. This means now I am only able to move/feel my head, my shoulders and parts of my arms/hands. Most likely for the rest of my life.
I am typing this with the knuckle of my little finger. AMA
edit:sorry, I am now back on my computer and trying to answer all the questions. Normally I am dictating most of my text. But I am German. I tried switching Siri to English, but I guess my accent is so bad that it doesn't really work, hehe. JAJA KRCHKRCH

edit3: http://imgur.com/IE0hHhX a pic of my hands. cant move the fingers, but I am able to hold/lift stuff, because my fingers close when I bend my wrist
edit4: Because you are so nice and curious I uploaded a video which is really precious to me! I guess it helps you guys to see me in action. my friends made it when they surprised me at my homecoming: http://youtu.be/p74xTxO-2Po
