Spinal Cord Injury Sucks--If someone tells you anything different, they are not telling the truth.
Unfortunately, a large percentage of the public is largely unaware of how much they suck. This is because the people that are most profoundly affected by this condition are the least able to advocate on behalf of themselves. Spinal cord injury significantly degrades quality of life, strains relationships with family and loved ones, induces financial hardship and perhaps most tragically of all, shatters dreams and ambitions. Nothing compares to the suffering endured by a high quadriplegic. Curing paralysis by fixing damaged spinal cords as fast as possible should be pushed to the forefront of modern medicine. It is an emergency of epic proportions. However, it is not a top priority because the public is largely unaware of the condition, the afflicted population is not large enough, and most importantly, the research is critically underfunded.
