90. Landmines In Cambodia: Letter From A Khmer Amputee
Letter From A Khmer amputee. By Hay Loeuth. When I, an amputee, was grief stricken and those around me were cheerful and happy, how miserable I was.
Letter From A Khmer Amputee
By Hay Loeuth I want to tell you about the suffering which struck my heart and I cannot rid myself of. When I, an amputee, was grief stricken and those around me were cheerful and happy, how miserable I was. I had no strength to struggle and continue to exist in this world. My heart was either full of sorrow or hopelessness. Living for what? Just a little food to fill the hungry stomach and waiting for the end of the day. But I wanted to tell you about my feeling after my legs were blown off by a mine. I lost all my sense of being and self-esteem and filled myself instead with cowardice, fear, and despair. I did not want to live. The words wouldn't stop ringing in my ears: "I am an amputee." There is no reason for living found in these words. Filled with sorrow, shame, and humility at being discounted by other people. Difficulty both physically and psychologically. Nothing to smile about, so never smiling. Always under stress from the disregard of other people. Like living in a hell. Living like a reptile which hides its face when it meets other animals or men, like a bird that gets its food from the female or like the kind of tree that grows on another tree. That's why others are frustrated and disregard me. I am a parasite. Everything that I could do before, walk, stand, sit, jump, run; I can do no more. Whenever I was in a group of people, I looked at myself and saw that I was the ugliest one of all.

The Amputee Series consists of 11 Virtual Conversations™ programs developed by IDI under a grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). These voice-activated programs allow recent amputees and their family caregivers to gain practical knowledge and emotional support through virtual dialogues with experienced amputees and caregivers. This Virtual Conversations™ series features 11 individuals (8 amputees and 3 caregivers ) each on a CD-ROM. The eight stories in the series include: Jonathon's Story Melanie's Story Ronald Austin Ken Rutherford ... Linda Edwards Place you mouse cursor over the Amputee's name

Amputees and caregivers who participated in the NIH-sponsored field test experienced significant learning gain and positive shifts in attitudes about amputees.

Heather's Story: In her early 20's, Heather Mills began a successful modelling career, but it was her first skiing experience that led her life in a new direction. "I started skiing in Slovenia on my first holiday there when I was 21 yrs old. I fell in love with it so much I went to live there and trained to be a first level ski instructor. The war started so I took 26 ski instructors to Austria (Bad Klein Kierheim) to teach English kids on holiday there."

Catherine Coulson (the log Lady in Twin Peaks) plays a woman who narrates her words of a letter she is writing, while a doctor (David Lynch) tends to her amputated legs.

ABSTRACT Introduction Method Discussion ... References ABSTRACT Introduction Psychological skills such as self-talk and imagery should relate with self-efficacy toward achieving performance related goals in soccer. Demonstration of links between psychological skills, self-efficacy, and performance should provide an empirical basis for applied sport psychology interventions. Further, empirically grounded interventions are preferable because they can be tested. The aim of the present study was to investigate relationships between self-efficacy and performance among a soccer team participating in the 2001 Amputee World Cup. Method Participants Participants were 15 male soccer players (Age range 19-28 years) in the England team at the 2000 Amputee World Cup. Players had an average of 11 years of playing experience ( SD = 2.81 years) of soccer. On average, players had 2.4 years (

100. Janson Media: Video And DVD: The Tom Whittaker Story
Story of 49 yearold amputee Tom Whittaker's record-breaking 1998 summit of Everest.
The Tom Whittaker Story: One Step at a Time An Everest summit attempt is a high stakes gamble. Over the years, 160 people have died making the attempt; never to return from one of the harshest environments on earth. 1998 was no exception. Several experienced climbers lost their lives. Climbing Everest couldn't be a more difficult or dangerous human undertaking, for even the strongest, healthiest, and most-experienced mountaineers. Which is why 49 year-old amputee Tom Whittaker's record-breaking 1998 summit of Everest has been called "one of the year's most amazing and inspiring stories."
The Tom Whittaker Story is a tale of remarkable resolve, tenacity and courage. Having failed twice before, 49 year-old amputee Tom Whittaker, missing his right foot and kneecap, sets out one more time for the "holy grail" of mountaineering. Award-winning producers Stephen Janson and M. D. Morgan take viewers on a fascinating and illuminating journey with Whittaker from beginning to end. The film features exclusive footage shot throughout Whittaker's incredible and difficult pilgrimage to the highest place on earth.
On the mountain, repeated failures and setbacks take their toll on the team. Longstanding friendships are on the verge of breaking apart. Whittaker's body twice betrays him. Finally, with time running out on his climbing permit, in the eleventh hour, Whittaker makes one final push for the summit. The expedition dramatically results in three major records inked in the tally books of Everest, and the human spirit's conquest of an enduring and monumental goal sculpted in ice, snow, and cold gray rock.
