Thanks for your interest (even if it's only in passing :-). My story began in India. I am ethnically of eurasian extraction from Kollam in Kerala, but I was born and raised in Bangalore.
Whilst I was completing a graduate medical degree, my family came to live in Australia in 1987. After my internship, I moved to Melbourne as well and began working, first as a Hospital Medical Officer and then as a Registrar, in several Victorian metropolitan hospitals, between 1992 and 2001.
In March 2001, I became a quadriplegic after sustaining a complete C5-6 spinal cord injury in a road traffic accident.
In a quirk of fate, at that time I was working as a surgical registrar at the Austin Hospital and so came to be a patient on the same ward to which I had admitted two spinal injury patients, earlier in the week of my accident. After a year of inpatient repair & rehab, in 2002 I came home and began the integration of the new me with my old life.
I am a C5-6 quadriplegic, which means that I only have normal feeling and movement above shoulder level. I need help with pretty much all my activities. I have a team of 6 carers that work in rotating shifts every day to get me game fit, up to the action and then back home again in reasonable shape.
I have a large and remarkably loving family who along with my many trusty friends, ftorm a sturdy life raft for me that I use every day to do everything.
