    Hey Chad,

    I think I may have met your father on the sixth floor lounge at the Shepherd center. I currently attend center IMT as well as beyond therapy. I have been very dedicated to recovery for...

    It has been a while since I've updated this thread. I think this is partially true because I was waiting on some huge recovery to share. There is no doubt that I've had recovery lately. Stronger...

    I am a very very strong believer and proponent of getting off of spasm medication. I do realize that some people must medicate for safety but in my own case I've never used spasm medication. I was...

    I too fit into a similar category as madproducer. From the beginning I was an incomplete Asia B. I remember hearing about the 90% statistic and thinking that I fit into that category. I later...

    Yes, that is exactly what happens to mine. I'll wake up in the morning and only one battery will be charged. Did you replace your charger? Did that fix the problem?

    Emotion wheels not recharging

    I have had my emotion wheels for almost 2 years now. Several months back the wheels were not recharging, so I replaced the chips that are in each battery. That fixed the problem but now one wheel...

    Hey Andrea,

    Your situation sounds very familiar to mine when I was around eight months post. I was asia b incomplete, and spent a lot of time in my standing frame, doing my own workouts, and...

    Hey Eric,

    I'm also curious to know when the facility is opening? I'm in Austin right now actually. I'm down here about once a month.

    The first and only center I have been at is the one in Atlanta. There is one guy at the Atlanta center right now who is from Illinois but I'm not sure if he has been to the one in Elmhurst or not. ...

    It's official, I weigh 167 pounds meaning I've gained 22 pounds in the past year or less. When the nurse told me at a recent doctor's appointment I did not believe her, so the following week I...

    Hey Martin,

    Great news in my opinion! Pat is right that any change is good, because guess what? The body wants to heal! A lot of times, all these things that we complain about, pain, spasticity...

    Hey Cripply,

    I agree, there is a great deal we don't understand. It boggles my mind to think how little we actually know compared to the infinite magnitude of all that which we cannot see or...

    This is interesting.... it seems like there may be something to the weights actually adding some sort of sensory stimulus which in turn activates the muscles needed. I notice a similar result with...

    Hey Rob! Good to see you in action. I can't quite put my finger on it but there is something about that "sweet dreams" video, that just ain't right. :) Sure had me laughing up a storm though.

    Betheny! :) sorry, it just excites me to hear that you are curious and interested in Francis. I tell people about Francis all the time, and probably 95% of the people I tell are disinterested.

    Hey Vicki,

    I too found myself and still do find myself sometimes wondering about certain aspects of IMT. When I first started I was told that I had to do a bowel program every day. I had been...
