I have always worried a lot. During my first 21 years in California, I worried about things like getting away from my parents, getting through school and getting laid. After the shooting that left me half paralyzed, I worried about all the same things — but now there was a lot to distract me. Like living in London for four years. A brief stint working in the disability rights movement. Writing about science, then writing for high tech companies. Then marriage. Then another marriage. Interspersed with efforts to stop gun violence and deal with its aftereffects. And travel. Lots of travel.
