“You just try to push through it and think that’s all there is… Before (the shot) I used to take my kids to school, come home, and lay down. Now, I get home and I find something to do outdoors. Just being able to enjoy the sunlight, it’s just… it’s just amazing!
My daughter interacts with me so much more. She’s no longer scared to be in front of me. I just can’t wait to do more with them. But even more, it’s to help my (Marines) brothers. I see them suffering every single day. They see me and say “what happened to you?!” and it’s just awesome – I want them to have that. I just pray that it does for them what it did for me.”
