“If you’re comfortable with yourself, people will be comfortable with you. After a period of time, people you interact with frequently won’t even think about your amputation.”
“Give yourself grace and be patient – you’re going to be presented with new challenges all the time.”
“You can still do anything your friends can do. Missing a limb doesn’t define who you are. Enjoy life and be the best you, you can be.”
“Be patient and stay positive, take things one day at a time and do not be too proud to ask for help.”
His advice to other amputees is that no matter how hard a situation is or how bad a day looks, to always be positive and try your best.
Josh advises new amputees to get up and get moving immediately, and to not let themselves “get into a pity party for yourself.”
