    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    My hats off to all of the members who’ve been injured so many decades.

    I read through some of the old posts and laugh at the good zingers we threw to one another and all the things we discussed. Mon dieu !

    I know many have passed on and are no longer with us, and I keep them in my heart. Others maybe don?t come back here much at all because of their lives or whatever reasons they may have had. I was just wondering who is still alive and around living the best they can. I hope everyone is as happy as they can be.

    Yes, I realize I?m more sentimental than many; the Portuguese have a word for it: Saudade; I?m stricken with it for life.
    Still here as well...check in approximately once every two weeks. I'll "swing" through as a guest every now and again.
    No one ever became unsuccessful by helping others out

    Jumping very late into this thread - I'm still around also, although I mostly post on FB these days if I'm using social media. I was a SpineWire/CanDo user here, although I read a good deal more than I ever posted. Got a lot of very good information here, but usually tried to stay out of the (sometimes very intense) discussions and debates.

    Referring back to one of the earlier posts in this thread, I believe it was Jeff Weeks, one of the admins, whose signature read "See you at the 'used to be paralyzed reunion'". Hope he's well.

    And also speaking of people we haven't seen in awhile - anyone heard anything from Joe 'NoDecaf'?

    Many of the CareCure old guard dropped off because:

    • the site's platform, though it still has useful features, has become antiquated. (Avatars in 2019? User handles?) Facebook changed all that.
    • many CC veterans were turned off, permanently, by the pointless, malignant in-fighting that prevailed here.
    • surrender: a cure for SCI never materialized and the prospect for one is still light years away. Members moved on with their lives.
    • sadly, more than a few of the CC originals have passed on.

    Plenty more bullet points could be added.

    Sadly, we lost a lot of women members to a few male members who were very sexist in their remarks, and which Wise was reluctant to ban. By the time they were banned, many woman had left. This was a sad period for our site; I wish some of them would come back!

    It is sad to think of the number of members and moderators who have died over the years as well.
