    Hello Everybody,

    I am from Houston. I am 35.
    New to the site Just reading through the posts.

    Two monts ago I had an severe accident and changed my life. Now i often think What was i and what am i. I was like a bird love to fly. but now I could not move away without a while chair, I can't get into my favorite car without the swivel. It always worries me that My flying nature is only begin controlled by some of the device.:sick::sick:
    After all it's also part of human life.
    I am happy find an abundance of advices and info here
    I am really happy to be a part of you.

    Hang in there. I'm 41 and getting my first set of wheels soon, but I don't look at it as a downside of things I can't do. I look at it as opening up my life to more things that I wouldn't be able to do without the wheels. To me it is opening up more doors than it closes.

    Yes, there are things that I wish and miss that I used to do, but without either a chair or a scooter, there is a lot less that I would be able to do.

    Just look at all you couldn't do without yours and you will be surprised how it changes your outlook.

    hi like yourself I found myself in a wheelchair due to accident at the age of 37 and it was one hell of a shock but hang on it does get better .

    I was sued to wheelchairs as ds uses one and have friends in them .But going from walking running round to wheels does take time to adjust and i am still in that akward stage myself.

    But I have decide that since it will be permant ( spinal cord injury )~ that I am not going to let it affect me .To the point I have decide that we are still going to do the trip to Florida next year that we had already booked before the accident .Mad maybe but I am refusing to let it curtail my life .Ask me after i been i may say something else though

    Think the key is preparation oh and pratice self propelling though will hire powerchair to .
