9781478179719: Spinal Cord Injury: My Life Beyond the Outhouse: The First Two Years

I can hear the sirens, but where is the ambulance? Just how strong did I think I was? I cannot feel my legs, but I am too scared to look and see if they can move. Pete is kneeling at my right side holding my hand and reassuring me that I will walk again. Heather and Jessie are at my left side holding my other hand. Mandy is inside the house too terrified to face what had just happened. My head is spinning in confusion. My completed manuscript titled "Spinal Cord Injury: My Life Beyond the Outhouse" tells about a fateful autumn morning that would change my life forever. It all started with journal entries I wrote when I was feeling sad or discouraged. Documenting my emotions seemed to help. The more I wrote, the easier it became to cope with the daily struggles and the easier it was to talk about. I then thought maybe I could make things easier for others by sharing what I've learned through my own experiences. I have been a medical secretary for five years and am currently working full time. I am a first time author who has spent over two years putting into words my journey as a paraplegic. The general guideline for a spinal cord injury is that the first two years are the most crucial for recovery; after two years the chances of recovery are much lower. This is why I chose to focus on this timeframe for the book. I myself did not regain any significant function, but I still hold on to the hopes that there is something promising in the future and that the body never stops trying to heal itself. In the meantime, I will live my life to the fullest of my ability and share what I can to help others.
