    i've had some support but i also pushed alot of ppl away. i'm only now starting to get back into society. i wish i was in a different frame of mind early on. i still would've had those who'd desert me but maybe i wouldn't have pushed so many away either.

    Ever since Kev had his accident I thank God fervently for our family and friends (Timaru you are not "Robinson Crusoe", I would have folded many times over).
    They are very special as they stil see Kev and not his injury .
    I don't even want to think of the alternative .
    Eileen , JenJen ,I wish that I could lend them to you , are some good people out there ....everyone with SCI has my deepest admiration for simply surviving such a trauma and seeing a positive side to it.

    One of my greatest disappointments was from my boss. I admired her so much and aspired to be a Vet half as good. She visited and kept in touch for a couple months. The visits got longer apart, phone calls started dwindling and e-mails got shorter. Now....well. I keep telling myself she's really busy.

    I think this is the true test of friendship.

    Although, there are those who don't stay in contact, even though they want to, because of the fear of the unknown.

    All my pre-sci friends are now gone, but I have soon replaced them, so it works both ways!

    "There are plenty of fish left in the sea" doesn't only apply to personal relationships.

    This is very true in some ways. I have some close buddies left, but the, say “network” is of course gone, mobility in general is to blame, I believe. Aside of that, it is replaceable and doable like you write, sometimes.

    I would have to agree. SCI has atleast created better friendships, contacts and opened different avenues.

    My best friend and I were just friendly aquaintances before and my SCI brought us to be so close. I'm so blessed for that!
