Hi Cap'n,

You're one of my heroes :-)

On the subject of rehab, one effective modality for learning to function again is the Feldenkrais Method. The functional and systems approach, I've found to be very powerful.

Best wishes

Do you do any special therapy or physical training?

Congratulations on getting an education for yourself. One of the ideas of the Sudbury model is that kids, when motivated by something they like, can study with incredible concentration and sustain it for many hours.

So creating an environment that lets kids find ways for their interests to catch fire seems to be a wise approach. Even kids who like to burn things can take that interest and develop their knowledge of chemistry and physics... if they don't burn down the school in the process.

Seems about as sick as one can be from flu without dying. Lucky you made it through.

My question: how do you feel about flu shots?

.... appears to be very accurate.

Did you read Anatoli Boukreev's account of the same events?
