Marzillier quote

“I waited for Tom to get ready for the interview, I felt apprehensive. I had no experience of interviewing people who are paralysed and no grasp of what might be acceptable to say or not to say. At the same time I berated myself for failing to see Tom as a person rather than a man in a wheelchair. Could I not treat him as I treated all the other interviewees for my book? My apprehension speaks volumes about how difficult it must be for those who are paralysed, how they deal on a daily basis with the prejudices, uncertainties and misconceptions of others. ” J. Marzillier from his upcoming book on trauma
