Well, 'positive attitude' is probably one of the most annoying phrases there is, but I found one today. I was delivering Avon catalogues and knocked on a house door to be greeted by a smiling man in a wheelchair. He had one leg amputated above the knee and the other was bandaged and swollen. Rather thoughtlessly, before I noticed the missing leg, I said, 'Oh! What happened?' He answered with a chuckle: 'Well, they said I needed to lose some weight, so they chopped my leg off.' We chatted a bit and I discovered he had had an ulcer that he hadn't noticed until it had gone gangrenous and it was too late to save the leg by then. His attitude was so positive, he looked cheerful and carefree, and he said, 'well, you have to get on with life.' I know he must find it very hard, but I guess I'm a bit in awe of the guy for his fantastic attitude to the awfulness of what has just happened to him. This is recent for him, he is still bandaged and looking forward to having a prosthetic leg. And yes, the problem was caused by diabetic neuropathy. I just thought it was worth sharing the meeting with you guys. It sounds awful to be cheered by meeting a man with such misfortune, but his manner gave me that 'positive vibe' feeling. I hope he has a great life ahead of him still.
