Synopsis

This work contains essays plumbing the depths of life with spinal cord injury. People with spinal cord injuries experience life beyond their medical and rehabilitative journeys, but these stories are rarely told. ""Deep: Real Life with Spinal Cord Injury"" includes the stories of ten men and women whose lives have been transformed by spinal cord injury. Each essay challenges the stereotypes and misconceptions about SCI - with topics ranging from faith to humility to sex and manhood - offering a multitude of voices that weave together to create a better understanding of the diversity of disability and the uniqueness of those individuals whose lives are changed but not defined by their injury. Life with SCI can be traumatic and ecstatic, uncharted and thrilling, but it always entails a journey beyond previous expectations. This volume captures this sea change, exploring the profound depths of SCI experience.
