Thread: Hello...new to the forum

    Hello...new to the forum

    Hi to all...my name is Patty. I was involved in a roll over car accident on 1-11-09, which has left me with several life altering injuries, including a C 5/6 incomplete spinal cord injury. Ironically, my accident was a result of falling asleep at the wheel, after the hospital, in which I worked as neuro nurse, forced me over into a second back to back 16 hour shift. After finding myself regressing backward in some of the progress I had made, both functional and neurological, I was thrilled to find this site. I appreicate the many informative posts that I have had the opportunity of reading since joining. It is my hope to make new acquaintances, gain useful insight and secure, as well as lend, emotional support. Thanks for listening!!

    Welcome, and hope you get as much as possible off this site. I know that rehab can cover only so much, so get the info you need here. It's so helpful to find out about the "little" things that you find out are everyday things for everyone, and how to approach them. Again welcome.

    Welcome Patty. I wish there was something we could do to stop the abuse that you were subjected to, and is widespread these days. I do not see anything in the current health care reform efforts that will address it.

    Hopefully, we can help you make the best out of a bad situation.
