Imagine waking up and you cannot feel anything. You try to talk, but there are no words-- only silence. You try to scream, and nothing comes out. The only sound you hear is your own voice, but only inside your head. You look around frantically. What comes into focus are the tubes sticking out of you that are helping you eat and a machine that is helping you breathe. You were in an accident and suffered a major spinal cord injury that has left you paralyzed from the neck down-- unable to speak, hear, eat or breathe on your own. Your mind is intact. Your body has become your prison.
