    Number of Years Paralyzed

    When speaking about paralysis to family, friends, co-workers or medical personnel .. I want a new number. So here's the deal: 1 post per member (you quiet lurkers participate please!) and I want you to write down the years you have been paralyzed. At the end we'll add up the number of people. The numbered photo thread got me thinking about this.

    Example: 10 people report 23yrs of paralysis each ... 230 years altogether. That really hits home to me.

    I believe these numbers are going to have a huge impact and will compliment the usual numbers of 12,000 in North America per year. Okay really I can't sleep, lol.

    23yrs as of July 29th, 2008 (add the totals as the posts progress).

    TOTAL = 23 +

    What if we just say how many years it will be before the end of 2008 to avoid confusion? So including wheeliecoach's fiancé we are up to 160..

    160+ my 14 =174 CumulativeTotal
