The challenge I have overcome since my SCI that others might benefit from is getting over the depression, moving forward, and being fine with living your life from a wheelchair. I was depressed and wasn't happy knowing I'm in a wheelchair, and I would never be able to do anything I enjoyed. Well I was 100% wrong about that. As time went on, I realized I could do most everything I enjoyed from the wheelchair. This realization got me over the depression and made me move forward, to enjoy life again. So, all I can say is don't give up, keep your head up and keep moving along.
