Keep Rolling Life is Great
Hello! My name is Catarina Oliveira, I'm 28 years old, and I live in Oporto (Portugal). In January of this year I had transverse myelitis while on vacation in Rio de Janeiro, which left me paralyzed from the waist down. Initially it was a shock because I thought my life would change drastically, but I quickly decided that I had to try to get the best out of this whole situation. So nowadays I do everything I did before the injury; study, work, travel, I'm a DJ, I do a lot of sports and obviously a lot of physical therapy because after all, hope is the last that will die and I will walk again!
Life is great
My friends and family are just amazing and I don't let anything stop me from doing what I love! The message that I would like to leave to everyone is that the human being is much more than a standing or sitting body, so do not judge us by our incapacity. Deep down we are all equal regardless of our current physical condition! Be happy and above all enjoy life to the fullest because: LIFE IS GREAT!
