My most feared disorder is without a doubt being a paraplegic. I can't even imagine what it would be like to not be able to walk, and have to sit in a wheelchair for the rest of my life. I think that I would almost rather die than become a paraplegic, because it would take all of the fun out of life. One of my cousins best friends got in a dirt bike accident last year riding at the sand dunes with his family, from what I heard he was going towards a jump really fast and he hit a rock right at the base of the jump and it shot him forward onto his neck. He ended up breaking his cervical vertebrae and I think some other bones to but worst part of it all is that he ended up being a paraplegic because of it. Now he can't do anything but sit in a wheelchair and watch all of his friends do things that he only can wish he still could do.

This is my most feared disorder because of what I have seen it do to people who have had great life's up until the point of becoming a paraplegic. This disorder would affect me a ton. I wouldn't be able to do anything that I like at all; because everything I do I need my legs and arms for. I wouldn't be able to ride my dirt bike, go snowboarding, or even walk anymore. I would hate to be a paraplegic, so I better start watching and thinking about the things I do before I do them, so I wont have to end up being able to take away everything fun in my life.
