    I feel like I'm at a safety meeting where I used to work and they are showing the scary pictures.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Amen, to that.

    I've often wondered what it would be like to have an SCI from non-physically violent trauma. When I'm at intersections, waiting to turn, with cars whizzing by right beside me, and I'm doing all I can not to lose my ever-lovin'-shit...especially at those times! It wasn't so much the crunch as the noise leading up to it and the sinking feeling catching a glimpse of the orange bumper in my side view mirror at the last second. Gives me goose bumps and a pounding headache, just thinking about it. There's certainly nothing prepotent about a violent SCI, IMO.

    Every SCI is traumatic, in and of itself, to be sure.

    Thx David, and I hear that, the non-tramatic SCI's, I had a spinal cord tumor in my c-spine, resected in 99, not very dramatic but horrible all the same.
