Please forgive me if this comes off as an answer your already aware of. Its truly not my intention to come across that way. With that in mind I have to say we truly have the ability to wake up, and refuse a bad day. Does this mean I don't have a crappy day... HECK NO. However it means I am going to look for anything and everything positive and keep pointing it out until that behavior becomes "natural" to me. I do admit, I am FAR from natural. I never needed therapy, I never asked if I could walk again. I believe in God, and the best part of refusing to acknowledge the "limitations" put on us by the medical books they tell us how far we can improve or only with in two years of injury, the best part is here in my 7th year I am still improving. I am still gaining feelings, and movement. I love proving them wrong. I also had a great support system. Maybe you don't have this. CLING to positive people, they are contagious, keep it reverse thought in mind as well. A bad attitude is also contagious, AVOID, AVOID, AVOID! In the second year of my injury I experienced my first huge storm. I was lucky that day because I had a friend there. The intense emotions of that day sent me right away to my shrink. I know where he is and am not one bit afraid, or ashamed to say I need him during anything that effects my mind set or feelings. I have a great one. Ask around to people in your community, maybe you can find one like mine. I am not the first to brag about him so others may be bragging about one near to you. Good luck to you! I wish you the best.
FYI: I hate the chair with a passion; that's just where I get some of my determination to keep pushing my limits below that level of injury, squeeze that next muscle, over and over until it wakes up like the rest did. If they say I can't....I SAY WATCH AND SEE LOL
