    I guess both
    A brother was visiting once during that time and I'm told I said, "Boy we must have done something really bad this time. Mom and Dad are both here in Clickers* office."
    *Clicker was the high school asst. principal and disaplinarian, I guess my confused mind was only able to think of "usual" trouble. I wasn't even thinking as bad as police or pregnancy trouble. All those combined would be a cinch.
    Oh, I can't imagine. Hopefully, when your mother realized the extent of your injuries she was more sympathetic than angry. She was lucky; she could have lost you altogether.

                  i broke my back out of the country. i also hit my head. and i was high as a bat. i had no idea what lead up to it, what followed, and i am fuzzy on most of the details for several weeks after. but, i suspect that if i had had a better idea of what was going on immeadiately following the incident, i would not have behaved in the madcap fasion that i did. i remember chun sewan and his aunt giving me a 1000 baht note, with which(in my mind) i was going to escape from the hospital, hire a taxi, buy a case of chang beer, and get a hotel near my apartment until i could figure out what had happend with my keys. i was observing the nurse's dining and toilet habits, listening to the electric door somewhere behind me slide open, making an estamation of its distance from me and design of its trigger mechanism. the only sane thing i did was read the books my iranian buddy brought me. it is not good to grope in the dark in these circumstances. the trauma short circuits part of your mind, and you need SOME outside info. don't start doling out supperlatives, but let it be known that this is a serious situation.

                    i might add that it is my opinion that that same short circuit may be instrumental in the coming recovery, if it is harnessed and driven properly.
                    good luck

                      That Shatner story needs its own thread. A sticky one. It may need its own moderator, and possibly an entire website. Because it Rocks. That. Hard.

                        TELL HIM... I agree w/ Betheny.. Don't use the term 'forever' tends to piss people off, especially new into this.. No one has that 'power' to use that term, you never know what the future may bring... But it will take some healing time... why delay that time to start?

                          PLEASE NOTE!!

                          This thread was started in 2006!!! I suspect that the person involved has long ago been told about and learned to live with his SCI.

                            Forgive me please. this forum is full of hope for us that wasn't availble before. He can start bolgging and hopefully hope will turn into reality. Might want to see what Wise says about this.

God bless him and his family and hope it works out for him...
