    New to SCI

    Hi All..
    So I'm very new at this and was wondering if anyone would mind sharing how your SCI occurred?

    Thanks

    Hi Megs, welcome to Care Cure. My son dove in to a pool almost 9 years ago.

    I fell 20 feet from a tree and dislocated my spine at T12 L1. Sorry you had to find this site. It is a great resource.

    I plane crashed, too - the engine died about 30m in the air. We were going up for a skydive. I should have worn a seat belt

    For someone so freshly injured (December 27, 2012), this seems an odd question to ask. You don't have questions about how to maximize your function instead of asking what happened to each of us?

    From what we were able to piece together, I was riding my bicycle, lost control, veered off to the other side of the road, hit a tree, was thrown off the bike and landed on some rocks that were on the bottom a ditch, that was about 10ft deep.
