    Unhappy Am I alone again?

    Am I alone who don't believe anymore about real cure for SCI? I'm c4 15y post. and I heard so much that a cure is just around the corner. That corner is now too far for me, I gave up about this.
    Like God, we hear a lot about him but we never saw him...
    Am I wrong?
    I'm sure that some of you can easily understand my feeling.
    For conclusion, life in wheelchair is nightmare forever, even more when you are c4.

    Yo fool I am C4 and my life is not a nightmare. So take that and rewind it back. But then again it's only been four years so who knows. I could eat my words right now three years from now. Oh no!

    PS-ankle sores get infected and take my life ASAP!! Just kidding.

    I have neurotic pain but I can tolerate it without medicine. I do have spasms and I take medicine and it's not that bad so it's cool. For UTI's I don't believe I've ever gotten one. If I did I don't think I noticed. My health is really the only good thing I have. Just my social life sucks but I try to counter it with sports as best as I can. So yeah...

    Salut Steve! Where are you from in Quebec? Don't give up, I know how you feel, the cure will come. I am 23 years post and still believe, very few believed in it when I was trying to convince people 23 years ago, we are closer than ever (I know that it cannot be otherwise but I said it anyway ...).

    Hello again Dr. Young,
    Thank you very much for you encouragements. Thank you again for your great great work. It's remarkable. You are a phenomene.(right word in english? )
    I don't give up for life, I have to deal with it.....but for cure it's tough to still hoping when you read so many researches and still no real good result for us so far.
    I can't imagine how I would be mentally if I would not have an excellent health like I have. No pill at all...just paralysed...lol "just".
    Friends around me help a lot also, for sure. Even 15y later, they still organize softball tournament to raise money for me that allow me to go to Florida 3 months during cold winter here. Wow...finally life is too coool....just kidding!

    Ciao

    Steve
