Hey whatsup, I just came back from my team building trip with my class today, and I was just wondering something. During the trip, which was in a rural forest area, I was in severe pain every single day because I had an acccident when I was 1 year old in which both my legs were severely burned. Needless to say, it hurt like :Censored:, but the situation was taken care of, I got to go to the locations by car. On the other hand, I had fun with my class and friends and I feel like we've grown as a team. We even slept in a cave one night, though I wouldn't recommend it, it was cold, dirty and uncomfortable. Though it was kinda fun seeing everyone stumbling around after a bad night :lol: So I was thinking: Was it worth it or could I have stayed away from the trip, knowing very well the immense pain it meant for me? I thought hard about it before I decided to go along, and I think it was worth it. What do you think about it?
I was climbing a tree once... and fell and split my leg open alittle... but I had summer camp the next week. I went anyways, I slowed my team down... but we still won in the end. simalar story
it was worth it. nothing goes over having fun with friends.
When going out with friends it is fun, cause you know the ppl and you really arnt trying to impress anyone.
So does it hurt to walk?
Accomplishing goals/events etc with your mates is the best feeling and you grow together :)
no one can decide that for you

i guess it depends on how tight you are with your team, and if one of your teammates be given the same roughness, that they would or wouldn't stand strong... how tight are you with your teammates? and would they cover your back and help you stand strong when you might feel weaker than typical? once you've figured out that, then you'll understand if it's worth you putting up with agony..... and whether or not sacrifice is virtue, depending on the true stature or youre teammates....
i think that it is great that you went with your friends instead of sitting around. the thing about it is that you went and hung out with your friends and that even though you are disabled you went and that is something that gives you a good character.
NapalmSo does it hurt to walk?[/quote] Yeah, it does after a while. See, the thing about my feet is that I have no footsoles. They had had to be replaced with skin from my thigh, and you can imagine that that isn't half as durable as the sole of your foot.

I certainly am closer to my classmates now. I had certain priviledges such as being able to go to locations by car but I only made use of them when my feet were close to bleeding. It wasn't really a problem for my classmates to go to the locations, but for me it was hell. I made use of the priviledges so late because I didn't wan't to quit so early so I bore the pain for as long as I could. But all in all, I did have a good time and now that it's over I'm glad I did it.
