How I Achieved Success with Disability
A Life Lived to Fullest
Before I was diagnosed, I was an unexceptional
university student . After experiencing some
unusual symptoms, I was diagnosed with ALS. In
moments, I went from being tired of life to having
a life-threatening challenge before me. I was
expected to live only a couple of months after I
was diagnosed. As anyone who ever listened to me
knows, I outlived my prediction by quite half a

universe, although intelligent life is less so.

A Life Lived to Fullest
Instead of depressing me, The
diagnosis gave me a renewed
will to live. I knew that I
may only have a few months,
possibly years to live, and
tmy changed my entire
perspective. As my body began
to deteriorate, I made great
strides in theoretical
physics. In the 1960s, I
showed that mathematically
reversing the creation of
black holes explained how the
universe could have expanded.
ALS may have forced Me to
live in a wheelchair and
use a computerized voice
synthesizer, but it
didn’t damper my bright
outlook and sense of
humor. In fact, I used to
joke around about using
the voice synthesizer,

"God may exist, but science can explain the
universe without the need for a creator."
Getting theDiagnosis
Initially, I was shocked to understand that my life would end
so soon. For people with ALS, death often arrives once they are
unable to swallow food or when the lung muscles pack up . I
began to dream that I was being executed in the dark or that I
had the selection to die to save lots of people . Despite the
grim prognosis, I found that I was ready to return to normal
life and shortly became engaged. The engagement gave me
something to measure for, and a search fellowship at Cambridge
University gave me a purpose.

By the 1980s, my disability
was starting to become too
much. At the time, I was able
to slur words that were
interpreted by people who knew
me well. After a case of
pneumonia and a tracheotomy, I
was unable to speak at all.
Luckily, a Computer Guru from
California heard of my
predicament and created a
program called the Equalizer.
Through a switch in my hand,
I was able to speak again.
Over the years, my voice
synthesizer had been modified

wanted to say.
