How do you adjust to life as a para?

Posted by Sarah Parker on December 15, 2015 at 6:07am 0 Comments

This has been my biggest hurdle the past two years. I am so glad to have found this community. I didn't even know there was one... there are no support groups in my area for SCI. My counselor said I should start one, but am not sure how. How has everyone adjusted? I feel angry, sad, and long for my legs on the daily. I would like to share my story on how this happened to me if anyone is interested, later on. Thanks for any advice you may have.

Most of the time, people are normal but there’s always a few that seem a little uneasy. Sometimes it’s hard to get eye contact from them.  Maybe they think I better not get too close, I might catch what he’s got.  Some are afraid if they ask you something and you’d answer in grunts and hand…

Scientists Connect Neurons in the Lab for the First Time

Scientists Connect Neurons in the Lab

Injuries to the central nervous system — the brain and spinal cord — are particularly devastating because the body doesn’t regenerate neurons to repair connections between vital circuits and restore function. In other words, the damage is permanent or even fatal. A variety of early studies in animals and humans indicate the field of neural regeneration research is advancing. A 20-year-old… Continue Reading »
