    was having a social worker evaluate patients regularly for suicidal tendencies I didn t want to be the weakling that needed counseling those thoughts simply came and went Then there s the cost issue My time in the hospital cost my father s insurance company roughly 100 000 That is a pittance now but was considered a king s ransom then I have no idea what my adaptive equipment electric wheelchairs special beds lifts for transfer from chair to bed has totaled since Then there s the costs of attendant care over the years the 7 surgeries I ve had from complications to the accident What have I done since the accident I have lived semi independently for nearly 23 years In 1985 I graduated the University of Southern Maine with a B A in Communication In 1989 I graduated Regent University in Virginia Beach with an M A in Creative Writing Journalism While there I also worked with a large non profit organization received an outstanding service award for working 5 years in an inner city project wrote and sold 2 radio dramas that were nationally syndicated wrote a one act play that was produced several times plus worked on a national presidential campaign After returning to Maine in 1992 I founded and published a Christian newsletter in 1993 I have been highly politically active serving on the Boards of multiple non profit organizations To put it simply my life has been and continues to be full and productive My past concern is simple What would I have done if PAS had been an option when I was first injured or during any of the critical complications I ve been through since In retrospect there were many times when I don t know I can t begin to express the roller coaster of emotional ups and downs I went through Now I m incredibly grateful that PAS wasn t an option My other concern is with the present In the past year I ve had to battle both the Legislature and the Department of Human Services to keep my attendant care funding from being cut lost all of my physical therapy due to insurance cost cutting plus am still wrestling with my insurance companies over who s going to pay for what on my much needed new wheelchair Given the current trend of insurance companies and government bureaucracies to cut costs any way possible especially by racheting back all benefits to consumers I find this to be a VERY real danger The bottom line is simple A traumatic injury such as mine is a life changing experience of indescribable dimensions When first faced with the reality of my paralysis I spent many frustrating hours wondering whether or not life would be worth living Fortunately every aspect of my treatment rehab was geared toward encouraging me to overcome my obstacles and move on toward a positive and productive life Next the financial costs of saving my life getting me ready
