Overview

Forty-five people. Forty-five diverse yet personal life stories. All of them are connected by a powerful, shared life experience - spinal cord injury.
From There To Here: Stories of Adjustment To Spinal Cord Injury is certainly about hope -- but not by way of mere inspiration. These essays are the stuff of whole human lives, and illustrate the real and complex process of how people respond to sudden and overwhelming change. They start from trauma and confusion, their vision of the future challenged to the core, and ultimately arrive at a place that each of them in their own way calls "adjustment." A place that none of them could have imagined when they were There. The heart of these stories is what happened in between - the actual journey to adjustment, acceptance, meaning, and possibility. The journey to Here.

    From There to Here

    It is rare that a book can make your jaw drop every three pages. 'There' represents the time period following a disabling accident, usually involving depression and a significant adjustment to the life of the spinal cord injured. 'Here' indicates the time period where the individual is currently. Generally these people have found happiness and success in their ¿here¿ state. From There to Here gives insight into how adaptive and resourceful humans are. While these stories all involve unique individuals with different personalities, there are themes that run throughout the book. For instance, the help of having a family/friend support system, feeling depression and anger, and the helpfulness of having others with SCI share their stories and successes are all examples of themes running through the essays. This book is helpful for anyone who has suffered an SCI, as well as useful for those who seek to gain further perspective into this life-changing event. --Disaboom.com
