ABSTRACT
The article reports that spinal-cord injury (SCI) is a life-changing experience. People with SCI sometimes may be forced to correct healthcare workers' perceptions of life with SCI. Nondisabled people and those with SCI share almost the same broad range of emotions. While depression is common, particularly in the months following injury, many people with SCI have satisfying lives as do most without SCI.
