    When I was first injured, fourteen years and five days ago, I had an expectation that a cure would happen in my lifetime and defined a cure as being completely fixed. When I first found CC I looked at the Cure forums and hardly looked at the other forums. Now I have stopped expecting today to be the day that a cure is announced so I check the cure forums with less of a sense of urgency.
    I still have hope that a cure might, possibly happen in my lifetime. My defintion is still the same but now I would be ecstatic if only a partial cure were available. For now, even if I just recovered enough sensation that going to the toilet was a result of feeling the need to rather than because it was part of a schedule and if I was not worried about being ambushed by pressure sores that would be fantastic. Walking would be excellent and I am still convinced that it will be the normal state of recovery from SCI within the next few decades.

      I agree. These same predictions, recovery expectations, and close proximity to a cure were posted back in 2002 by many forum members based on the work of Giles Plant in Australia, John McDonald, Carlos Lima, and others.
      Somehow I doubt revisiting a topic after 9 years is going to traumatize anyone.

        Yes i have read them too and learned a lot about realistic expectations.
        However i refuse to be pessimistic.it only takes that one good solid breakthrough for a tidal wave of researchers and medical companies to ride this this wagon.
