Mind over Body | The Story of Anubis

Mind over Body | The Story of Anubis


Hello all. My username here Anubis. My real name is Lester. I was born and live in Puerto Rico. Let me tell you my story...

I was born on May 28th, 1986. I was a premature baby, yet I weighted 8.5 lbs., and was normal size. I started to talk complete sentences at 6-7 months. My little brother was born on May 27th, 1987. When I was 2 years old, my brother was walking, but I wasn't. This worried my parents. So they took me to various doctors. One of them suspected I may have one of the types of Muscular Dystrophy. So they did a lab test in which they remove a tiny bit of muscle tissue (I still have the little scar in my arm, but it barely noticeable). They test proved positive and I was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy - Type II (SMA). Because of this I am left in a wheelchair for the rest of my life and have low motor skills (hands tire out easily, I can't reflex fast; this is why I tell some people I may never go pro-level gameplay, as I am physically not able).

When I was 5-6 years old, I developed Scoliosis. My spine is at 90 degrees instead of 180 degrees, so my spine looks like > instead of |. Because of this, my spine compresses my lung, and I have 50% lung function and flues, etc. hit me very hard, to the point of needed hospitalization. I can suffocate easily.

I went to normal school one year earlier than usual, and I did always well, too well. On first grade, my parents where offered to make me jump to 3rd grade. They rejected it, because they though that having a handicapped child that was 3 years younger would bring mockery and poking from fellow classmates (a very sad thing, children are cruel).

So I went on normal school until 10th grade. (During those years, I became a gamer [my first video game was a Gameboy /w Tetris], and a partial artist, but my art phase faded away) I was unchallenged at school, I never studied and aced everything (i.e. I took the finals for 10th and 11th grade math in August and was in 12th grade Precalculus @ 14). I secretly saved my allowance and paid to take the College Admission Test, something the school didn't allow to 10th graders, but the school counselor backed me up. I got a 3125 score (with the average being in the 2800-2900). I got letters from all local colleges and some from the states (i.e. Penn State). But I was in the 10th grade.

In January of that year, I took the High School Validation test from the Department of Education, a test normally given to dropouts, but they made an exception. Results came in in February and I passed, so I went to school one last day and said good bye to my teachers and never looked back.

In March I started my college life, still at the age of 14. I took all summer classes, and made a Barchellor on Computer Science that takes 4 years, in 2 and half with a 4.00 GPA (As in School, I never studied for tests, it was all memory). I graduated and Suma Cum Laude and took my department's Excellence in Studies award. During that time, I took the LSAT (Law School Admittion Test). The Board didn't allow me for extra time because of my handicap. I didn't finish any part, what little I did answer was so correct, it was enough to pass.

At the age of 17 I started Law School. At last I was among thinkers, and I felt challenged. I finished Law School at 20, but graduated at 21 (my birthday being May 28th) with honors (Cum Laude). I took the Bar Exam and result came last December. I sworn as a Lawyer on last February became probably my jurisdiction's youngest lawyer (as Barchellor + Law School = 7+ years and people enter college at 18 or so). On April I had my first 3 cases and I won them. I've continued my Law cases and until now, won them all.

So there is my story. Thanks for reading.

New Entry: I passed


Back in October I took a special test. This test was to certify me as a Notary Public (which requires for me to be a BAR admitted Lawyer here in P.R.). What is a Notary Public you ask?:

I am happy to inform I passed. Why am I so happy? Because this is me second time taking it. I took it in back March for the first time, and as a handicapped person, I filled the application for extra test time. But they gave me less time than I asked. I couldn't finish one of the essays and out of the 596 out of 1000 score needed to pass, I got 594. Yeah, I didn't pass for 2 freakin' points. I filled the application for extra test time again for this past October and yet again they gave me less time than I asked. And like the first, I didn't finish it, but at least I did enough to pass. So now I can get an extra income apart from Court cases.

Wow man, this is probably the first story that, like, touched my heart... I'm glad to see that even handicap people can make something great of their lives. It annoys me that I see people (who look like they can get a job) asking for handouts on the street lol

Yep. My parents gave me my Xmas present early as a reward: A new Blue/Black DS to replace my damaged one, an Official DS Flip case (of matching color, Blue/Black), an Official DS Carlighter charger (for those rare on the go battery emergencies) and 2 DS games of my choice (Picking up Mario Kart DS and Chrono Trigger during the week).

I just bought a Hori Screen protector plus online for it, so I'm not opening the DS until I get it (to put it in a clean out-of-the-box DS).
