Time is always the best medicine

A bit about my story...

My name is Judeland. I would like to share with you my life-changing experience that happened during the Civil War in Sri Lanka on September 24, 1996. My family and I will never forget that day. It was the night of September 23, 1996 and there was a fight in the village. Thinking it was too dangerous to leave during the night, we stayed until morning. Once daylight broke, we decided we had to make a run for safety.

I jumped on my bicycle and peddled fast down the road, hearing a strange noise, getting close and closer behind me. The next thing I knew a bomb had exploded and a piece hit me in the lower back – I was in shock! I tried to move but the pain was terrible. I couldn’t move my legs.

This war gave me a new name: Paraplegic T12. It's been 21 years since my accident, there were times at the start where I wanted to end my life but I'm so glad I didn't! These days 24 hours isn't even enough for me to do the things I want to do, so many goals to achieve and I love waking up and going for it. Time is always the best medicine who ever thought I would enjoy being the odd one out!

I am in wheelchair, but with a determination to never to give up my dream of living a full life, with all of its challenges.

Collapsible text is perfect for longer content like paragraphs and descriptions. It’s a great way to give people more information while keeping your layout clean. Link your text to anything, including an external website or a different page. You can set your text box to expand and collapse when people click, so they can read more or less info.
