Didronel (Etidronate)

For some people, adjustment to spinal cord injury is relatively smooth and easy. Others can resume a stable and productive life only after a period of emotional upheaval and economic or social struggle. The difficulties presented by a spinal cord injury often stimulate a period of soul-searching and spark a person’s capacity for creative problem-solving. These processes can lead to a renewed sense of personal strength, transcendence of loss, and development of a more meaningful “way of being in the world.”
Our experience in working with people with spinal cord injury tells us that recovery and successful living after injury go more smoothly when people know what to expect during physical and emotional recovery. Being able to recognize and cope with medical and emotional difficulties, and having an idea of how to deal with changes in social relationships, really does help. In our current health care climate, priority is given to providing basic medical care and physical rehabilitation. Sometimes, not enough time and attention are given to helping people learn psychological, sexual, social, and vocational coping skills. A person may leave the hospital with the physical equipment for a changed way of life but unprepared for the emotional and social upheavals that lie ahead.
Learning to live successfully with a spinal cord injury and its associated disability is a long and challenging process. Unlike most acute medical crises, such as a broken leg or appendicitis, spinal cord injury cannot be “fixed” and its consequences do not go away once the immediate medical crisis is over. In almost all cases, even with the best medical or surgical intervention, a spinal cord injury results in some enduring physical disability that affects one’s life in many ways. The process of adapting to a spinal cord injury continues throughout life.
Spinal cord injury has a tremendous impact on physical, psychological, social, and economic aspects of life. After the injury, most people spend a significant period of time in the hospital, undergoing emergency treatment, acute medical care, and rehabilitation.
To a great extent, self-image and identity are intertwined with the experiences of the body. Spinal cord injury interferes with these experiences by disrupting normal movement, sensation, and sexual function, and sometimes by causing pain. Spinal cord injury can make your favorite activities impossible, limit your choices, and increase your physical dependence on others.
The disruptions and limitations caused by spinal cord injury can affect the sense of self, personal relationships, and social roles.
The road to recovery has many pitfalls. Losses and changes brought about by the injury can produce lowered self-esteem, depression, family conflicts, and social isolation. Passivity, self-pity, self-neglect, and substance abuse are some of the problems that may derail your progress. Social stigma and prejudice, environmental and social barriers, and problems with the delivery of health care and economic benefits compound the emotional and physical struggles and create further obstacles to living successfully.
Spinal cord injury, like any major life crisis, can be a catalyst for positive change. You’ll find that it can shake up old ways of thinking and doing and inspire a reassessment of your values, goals, and relationships. It can sharpen the appreciation of your mind, spirituality, and emotional connections to others. It can bring a family closer together. A spinal cord injury challenges you to find new and creative channels for self-expression and to discover new pathways to a full and satisfying life.
