    2 years today

    Well...2 years today my life was forever f*****d up .

    After losing my legs, marriage, farm, religion and finances, I guess I have no where to go but up.

    Here's to hoping for a better future for all of us...C'mon researchers!

    Rough day, I can imagine. Shortly it will be 6 for me. Never lose hope, but meanwhile we have to find a way to get a life for ourselves. Best of luck.
    T6 complete (or so I think), SCI since September 21, 2003

    ChipS, I didn't realize it'd only been 2 years for you. I passed my two year mark recently too (6/16).

    Here's hoping that the next 2 years will be much better!!!

    I turned 15 on Monday. I was feeling really torn up about it--depressed, tired, sick of life--and then I met a young woman with Cerebral Palsy, today, as part of my job, and she said: "You were injured in an accident? So you got to walk, once. I envy that."

    It was heartbreaking, and it corrected my perspective a bit.

    You still have your mind, right? Yeah, heads up!!
    From the time you were born till you ride in a hearse, there is nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse!

    All fringe benifits must be authorized by Helen Waite, if you want your SCI fixed go to Helen Waite!

    Why be politically correct when you can be right!

    I was right there with you when I was two years out, lost everything, friends, boyfriend, job, house, and even my dog. We all play a sad country song, but things do get better! Hang in there buddy, it is always hardest around our anniversaries.
