Hi Peoples, I guess "newbie" isn't what I am . Visited daily after my accident in about 2008 and learnt heaps and was confused by how many people were so knowledgeable of their injuries and treatment. Finally had my surgery in Feb. 2010 and thought life would be sweet, apply myself to rehab. and soon would be back to work. The pain and despair would be gone and my family would have the "old-me" back. So STUPID, since then I have battled the system, pills, pain and my poor family are stuck with a drug addicted, muscle-spasmed, wheelchair/stick using - wreck.
Finally I have grieved for the person that was and accept most of the limits but still want a life. This site was a positive in my life and so many people helped me, even saved me from suicide at one point. So here's hoping to offer support to others and on the way sure will feel better as well.
Will take a good look around and I am sure there will be people who I recall.
Glad to be back, hope to share Gig Gentle Hugs n' Loves- Paula
