Even if you are "able-bodied", you may realize that there are some days or periods when you actually feel quite "paralyzed". Your body feels heavy, you don't feel like moving an inch. Your minds feels even heavier. It seems as if your whole life is stuck and you are not able to change anything... You live but do you really feel alive? It's just time for a challenge, to unfreeze your mind or your body, or both...
For us, disabled bodies, one way or another, the "real" paralysis is omni-present, every single day, in most if not all aspects of our life and should not be minimized. But let us move in any way we can! Spinal cord injury "sucks", in many ways, but it does have one advantage: our brain and our mind still work!
