I just found out that my physical disabilities should not be called tetraplegia or quadriplegia. They have a more precise term to refer to my physical condition ? tetraparesis or quadriparesis. So now, I officially suffer from tetraparesis and I shall describe myself as such from now on. That is enlightening!
Some may ask what the difference is between tetraparesis and quadriparesis? They both have one and the same meaning ? partial paralysis of all the four limbs and loss of sensation from the neck or chest downward. Tetraparesis is British and quadriparesis is American, just like you eat your biscuits and I eat my crackers. The world is such a confusing place.
