Just read this and wanted to stop in and say Thanks for being a cool UPS guy. You could take shortcuts and throw boxes like a number of delivery drivers do, but you don't, and I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate that.

I've heard many times that when someone loses a sense, all of the other senses increase greatly in sensitivity, have you found this to be true for you? As in, can you taste the depth of the food better than before you lost your eyesight?

Hey man,

First off, I'm so sorry that this happened to you. From what I've read you are facing an phenomenonally large problem head on, and you didn't do anything to deserve it- just random chance of some fucking assholes wanting to steal an '04 BMW. It really stood out to me though that you had set a date to commit suicide.

I'm not here to convince you one way or the other, I have a nephew with severe autism and epilepsy, sometimes I feel as though his life would be more enjoyable having not lived- but countless other times I've realized I'm an ass for thinking that after seeing him bring so much joy to people's faces and seeing joy in his own eyes.

I'd simply encourage you to think about what you're passionate about, and maybe ponder the thought of someone you could possibly help or even just mentor? Someone who's been put in a situation just as terrible as yours, but maybe has no one at all to turn to. Maybe you could fight for better DNR & euthenasia rights? Or maybe you could just help one person in this world have a little bit better of a life, maybe even find peace with what happened to them- all the while finding peace with your situation as well, that is if you haven't already.

I'm just a random internet guy, but I'd be willing to listen to any PM's and share a conversation with a fellow person, we're all just people and some have it rougher than others.

Take Care man.

Hi! First of all, Good luck on your journey up Kilimanjaro, I'm sure it will be absolutely epic when you reach the peak!

I have a nephew with fragile X syndrome which had been considered a version of autism until just recently. My question for you is, Do you feel that mental/physical disabilities as a whole are misunderstood in the United States?
