    A super soaker squirt gun will be just as effective, and not cause permanent damage...

    I wish the hair on my legs would recede. I don't like shaving them very much.

    I'm so tired today. I was told this would get easier. It's been 4.5 years and every day is harder than the one before. I'm a t3 incomplete. My spasms have gotten so bad I dread going in public, I have decubs on the bottom of bothe feet, nnever know if I'm going to cath 600 cc a day or piss all over my self, be constipated or have an "accident". My shoulders hurt, my feet feel like they are on fire. I'm dread transfering to bed because the seizures make it hard to breathe and then I can't sit back up to get my legs in bed. I am always afraid of falling. In the morning, it takes 30 minutes to get my legs to stay bent when I get in my chair. Getting dressed has gotten so hard it is easier to stay in shorts and not leave the house. I am afraid it won't be long before I need more help than my aging parents can give and I don't know where I will go when they are gone. I'm only 51 years old but I don't know how much linger I can survive like this.

    I know this is a long rant but there is no one in my life who understands what this life is like. I guess I just want someone to hear me.

    I think you mean "spasms" in your legs and not seizures as one has with epilepsy? Have you considered asking your doctor for referral to in-patient rehab. for a refresher to deal with the issues you have?
    I know it's much more difficult for someone paralyzed as an adult, especially someone at middle age like you. So difficult to make lifestyle changes and deal with the issues of paralysis.
    My husband and I are both paralyzed, now in our 70's, he's SCI at T-10. He used to have terrible leg spasms, but no longer as bad. He's used to making many changes to prevent trouble, such as wheelchair cushions, transfer techniques, etc. We both use high slick transfer boards and wipe on Pledge about once a week to make them slippier, . We have used hospital type beds for 5 years now as we must do "gravity transfers" and save our shoulders. We are always watching our weight so that transfers are easier.
    Sorry I can't offer much - this is a time to reach out and ask for help to make changes.
    SCI nurse at CareCure may be able to help.

    Sorry things are so rough 2timer. I can relate to depending on aging parents, it's a terrifying and depressing prospect. Like triumph, I highly recommend trying to address your issues one by one with sci specialists. There have to be ways to at least reduce the sucktitude.

    Thanks for the feedback and encouragement. As a former nurse I recognize my spasms are actually more of a reflexive "feedback loop". Some days are just so hard and they seem more frequent. I know this lifestyle is hard. Some days it just seems harder than it should be. I. Sometimes want to plead with my Dr to make me a complete injury. In the end I settle for finding some place like this to just vent.
