    NYT Disability OpEd: Revelations in a wheelchair

    Nicely written opinion except for the groaner cliched paragraph:
    "The doctors could not guarantee that I would walk again, but I persevered. A year later, I had regained some ability to move. I did not regain feeling in the lower half of my body, but I could walk again."

    Can't believe the NYT editors continue to allow this kind of misleading language in their newspaper.

    Revelations in a Wheelchair

    A recently disabled New York City photographer gets an education in the discrimination that people like him must face.

    I moved this to the "Life" forum as the News forums don't get read much. Hope that is OK.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
