"My name is Benny Diar (@bennydiar). In 2008 I was in a bad car accident, breaking my neck. I had to be resuscitated on scene, car on fire having to be extinguished, and the jaws of life used to get me out. I was now a C3,4, & 5 complete quadriplegic. In the hospital, my heart gave out multiple times, and the defibrillator was used on five separate occasions to bring me back. Along with bad pneumonia, at one point I had a fever of 108.0°, where I was expected to die or have brain damage. The doctor convinced my family, that if I were to live, I would have no quality of life. A couple days later, they woke me up out of a sedated coma.
_______________
I have been artistic my whole life, and have been a graffiti artist for a lot of it. During recovery, I did tons of physical therapy, Eastern medicine, and breathing exercises. Once I tried painting with my mouth, I was hooked. It felt so good to be creating again. After tons of therapy and fighting at the facility in LA, I was able to eat real food again, breathe on my own, and completely get off a ventilator. Although my fingers and wrists don't work yet, I have been able to get back a good amount of movement in my arms. After becoming more independent and learning to live on my own again, I was able to move back home to the Bay Area, where I still live and paint to this day." #yoocandoanything #yoocan #quadriplegic #spinalcordinjury #sci #artist #graffiti #graffitiart #spinalcordinjuryrecovery #physicaltherapy #easternmedicine #breathe #painting #creative #therapy #recovery #independent #happy #instagood #photooftheday #bayarea #bayareaartist #sanjose #bennydiar #mouthpainter #bayareaart #sanjoseart #artcollective #paralyzed #paralyzedartist

For a long time I’ve been struggling with my long hair due to my vaccine injury. Many times I’ve contemplated cutting it all off so I could care for it easier. Then I kept saying Nah. I’m finding ways to deal with it. And I’m happy I’ve kept it long. ☀️
