They have a HC bathroom though and a lift but not any parking places. And I can't discuss this anymore because I am getting so angry, I am not going to sleep tonight.
    You are free to write about it in the SCI magazine, which by the way is distributed to politicians as well

    I think such a forum would be a great idea.

    Here in Vancouver, the new federal privacy laws prohibit counsellors from visiting a new spine injured person unless they are asked for by the patient. So people are falling through the cracks. Especially with a cure supposedly around the corner, kids are just denying the need for help. Hospital staff can only make them aware of programmes, the rest is up to the patient.

    well, this is interesting since "global partnering" is the proposed wave of the future and a big deal at my company. i'll run this past a co-worker who ran many businesses in asia.

    are we gonna get a work forum, wise, mods?

    I think I'll stick to self-employment, and droping the knife off the counter, into my very soft boned feet, I couldn't drink milk as a child, maybe it did alot to save me, as none of my neck, or back completly broke, or caused splinters into my spine, despite having a building fall on top of me

Questions regarding employment issues usually appear in the "Life" forum and while work is a part of life, life certainly shouldn't evolve around work. Is there just not a desire or need for one? I'm just asking....
    I 100% with Wheelieboy on this; I would prefer to see an Employment forum out here. So tired of people stating with that shocked look in their eyes; "you work" jobs should be the norm not the exception. This is not to say there is no room for an SSDI forum just would like to see the mindset be that SSDI is there as a fall-back for those who cannot work not an expectation for those who suffer an SCI.
