Yesterday was a day for big games! For the first time in months I played rugby and it was awesome! We played against the Connecticut Jammers a wheelchair rugby club sponsored by Gaylord rehab.
It was inspiring to see atheletes who have been dealt serious injuries and battled through them to stay active. Many of them related that it was wheelchair rugby that helped them recover mentally and emotionally from their accident. It also gives them an outlet for their frustrations and a social network- like any group or organization.
Despite our best efforts the Jammers ran away with the game. At the post game social I realized that no matter our lot in life we are all much more similar than different! Let’s treat everyone as if they are us- the world will benefit!
Expect Health, Dr Matt
