In July 1999, I found myself totally paralyzed from the upper shoulders down after sustaining a dislocated neck and spinal cord injury. Life as I knew it ceased to exist. In some ways, I ceased to exist. I no longer could do the things that had defined me as a person. I have spent the past ten years not only rehabilitating from my injury but redefining my existence. Moments of progress are celebrated but a restless desire for improvement continues. I am pleased but not satisfied.
