Right now just a huge sucking drain but someday will again be able to reciprocate the kindness I've found at CC.

    Hi Betheny,

    I sometimes feel guilty for not posting more. I have been injured for 43 years and still am learning things. Example: I found out yesterday that a pressure sore is no longer called decubitus(?)... it is now called a pressure ulcer.

    My regret is that I wish I had found this site much earlier. The amount I have learned from other members, the SCI staff and Dr. Young could never be learned in school.

    I applaud all the members, happy and sad, for their contributions.

    Thanks to all again.

    Do you think the newer social networking communities - Facebook for example - have had an impact on CC ? Someone pointed out the possibility to me awhile back and I've thought alot about it ever since ..... when CC was in its infancy they were still being choreographed. People's time is limited and perhaps the need for comradery has been better served in smaller more specific communities - which in turn has impacted the climate here a little (or a maybe lot )

    I'm spending more and more time on FB. Reconnected with all my old high school buddies, and gals, and we give each other shit all day long as if we were still in school. None of them have changed, most are rabid right wingers, lol, but we have fun with our differing political views, not like here, where there's animosity. We all love each other still, we were a very close class. The best ever, anywhere, ahem

    Seems like just yesterday to me, maybe that's why I'm spending more of my free time on FB than here. Haven't seen those guys in over 30 years, and it's as if I just saw them an hour ago. Weird, but in a good way.

    To me, life happened.... when I was newly injured with no kids or husband or home to care for I posted more.... I check in most days but rarely reply.

    Not quite, I'm not there with you too!
    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!

    thanks linda! for me fb is just easy to keep in touch with family members/large groups of friends that are spread out over the world.

    freedom is good but has left me exhausted. this is the first weekend that i have been home and it feels strange lol hows ur fam doing?
