This is the first article I wrote and the first video I created when starting this blog.

In this article, as well as in the video, I wanted to lay the foundation for my future posts and commentary.While I will be posting objective strategies and techniques for coping with an amputation, there is a need for a deeper connect after a trauma like this.

If you are an amputee, I want to express my condolences for your loss, while at the same time congratulate you for being alive, and getting a shot at a second life. At least, that is how I look at my life post amputation.

If you’r amputation is recent, I want to assure you can create a great life for yourself, even after this loss. I’m a living example of an ordinary good life after amputation. And I know of examples better than myself.

However, in order to create that great life, the first essential component is belief.

You need to believe in yourself, in your capability, in the fact that you are going to create  and live a good life, a life better than what you had before your amputation.
