Video: panel of couples discuss how to maintain a healthy relationship


Here is the introductory text from the NW regionarl SCI system website:

When a person sustains a spinal cord injury, the impact is felt by the whole family, especially the spouse or partner. How does the partner feel, cope and adjust during this turbulent time when the injured person’s needs are so paramount? How do roles and expectations change? How can a couple survive the stresses and challenges of such a life-altering event and go on to lead a satisfying life together? In this video, a panel of couples who were together before injury and are still together talk about their experiences and what they do to stay connected and maintain a healthy relationship.

On Another's Sorrow
Can I see another's woe,
And not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another's grief,
And not seek for kind relief.

Can I see a falling tear.
And not feel my sorrows share,
Can a father see his child,
Weep, nor be with sorrow fill'd.

Can a mother sit and hear.
An infant groan an infant fear?
No no never can it be,
Never never can it be

And can he who smiles on all
Hear the wren with sorrows small
Hear the small bird's grief & care
Hear the woes that infants bear

And not sit beside the nest
Pouring pity in their breast.
And not sit the cradle near
Weeping tear on infant's tear.

And not sit both night & day.
Wiping all our tears away.
O! no never can it be.
Never, never can it be!

He doth give His joy to all:
He becomes an infant small,
He becomes a man of woe,
He doth feel the sorrow too.

Think not thou canst sigh a sigh,
And thy Maker is not by:
Think not thou canst weep a tear,
And thy Maker is not near.

O He gives to us His joy,
That our grief He may destroy:
Till our grief is fled and gone
He doth sit by us and moan.

— William Blake
