Becoming a paraplegic has not stopped James. James still has issues with his bathroom difficulties but he still likes to work on things outside . James also likes to go fishing and hunting .
He told us that he is and will always be in recovery . James will always be learning something new in life . He urges others in his shoes to keep trying , keep learning and keep going ! James says “ It’s best to adapt to the best of your ability . And always remember someone else out there is struggling worse than we are “.
