At the end of rehabilitation I really made some big gains – independence in using the wheelchair, better self-care and being able to position my body...I also hope to get a car and be able to drive. The most important thing for me is to be able to work once I’m discharged. The support I’ve received [from the vocational rehabilitation counsellor] has been a tremendous help. I’m now even thinking of asking my old boss at the moving company if there is work that I could do there.
