    So Beth . . . what color would you like the sidebars with quotes from you to be?

    LOL, I get sidebars? YAYYY! And thank you! Is it safe to assume the general theme is red, white and black? Have rarely seen it in print, but white on black would be catchy, no?

    I'm ALMOST FAMOUS!

    Girl, OF COURSE you get sidebars. You're pithy, snarky, and catchy -- not to mention a founding member of u2fp. The book idea is of course inspired, informed, and made possible by u2fp's magnificent achievements, but . . . it's not theirs. I'm doing it however I think is best, which is to say the color & design & sidebar collection are all in my hands. You're SO in.

    NRH in 1992 had 2 voc rehab types who didn't know how to even turn on the PCs they had. My last computer had been the size of a house so my entire time with them was how to fit forearm supports to the desk holding one. Only library was in the rec rehab area with the games and plants. I did like some of the books in my shrink's office bookshelves but he wouldn't share.
    Yea, torn between who would want it to who would need it. I'm thinking the acute hospital's PTs who got me to a tilt table as fast as they could would love it. If US PT and OT schools are still teaching the deal with it model then I'm going to actually learn real German and go there after a cure is found. They judge discharge on need not insurance reimbursement.

    Ppl that WANT it will find it...if we can get the ppl that NEED it to comprehend.

    My dr's at TIRR would have trashed it. My PT was good at his job but too opposed to that whole "false hope" conundrum.

    My OT introduced me to CC, via a fellow patient, a teenager that talked about how to work the old PC. Showed me to lay a mouse on its side; real basic and really useful stuff. Man I loved that kid. That talk was far more useful than the ones about "I stood up and prayed", I'll grant you that. Rafferty covered all the bases. He's getting a book from Kate!

    Does anyone know if TIRR and other rehabs still have libraries? Has digital really taken over the world? I loved the library in rehab, but I love them all.

    I know Shepherd Center has a dedicated and staffed library with books, videos and yes even computers and fax machines for staff, family and patients.
