It's Not Over Yet

I'd like to thank you for the 'Body Bravery' article (May 2012).

A year ago I was involved in a horrific skateboard accident. Having hurt my back and almost fracturing my spine, I had to quit hockey and became the school 'vegetable' as I couldn't participate in any sports. The kids mocked me and I felt miserable. I gained weight and lost all my self-confidence.

When I read this article I realised that I shouldn't allow my body take over my life and control it - I could do something about it. After this article I'm on the road to recovery, eating healthily and visiting the gym regularly to lose the weight I gained.

Thank you COSMO - you've rescued another isolated 16-year-old from self-destructing.
