Last night when I couldn't sleep I stayed up late reading a thriller. The premise is that a girl was nearly killed and now must figure out who did it before they finish the job.
She wakes in the hospital unable to move her arms and legs - and also unable to feel touch. OMG, she's a quadriplegic!
The doctor tells her that nothing is really wrong "hypothesizing that my paralysis was in part due to swelling on my spinal cord and partially psychological. The swelling of my limbs was a result of the drugs and would go down soon." He adds that with luck soon she'll be "good as new."
Say what? In what world does it work like that?
I put it aside.
Do you ever have trouble suspending disbelief?
