    Introduction

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Shannon. I'm 23 years old. I just wanted to take a quick minute to introduce myself as I plan on using this site quite frequently. I was introduced to this site by my other half (Megan aka Seenkid101 as her username).

    From November of 2007 until recently (since she's gained her independence back) I was not only her partner, but her caregiver. I wouldn't have had it any other way.

    I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can. I feel that having a strong bond with people who can understand your situation is very important. We currently attend 2 spinal cord injury support groups a month. One here in Asheville,NC where we live, and one in Charlotte,NC where the accident occured. We've met many amazing people along the way and plan on meeting many more!

    Thanks for reading!
    True love doesn't have a happy ending because true love doesn't end.

    Welcome Shannon! It breaks my heart every time someone as young as you needs to seek us out yet at the same time I'm so thankful you did find us !!

    What ever your question don't hesitate to ask ..... and if you need to vent .... do ..... the Caregiving forum can be kinda quiet at times and then holy smokes someone lets the dogs out and all hell breaks loose ! Either way there's plenty of reading to read and learn from ..... please visit often!!

                Hi Shannon, remember me, we met last Saturday in Charlotte. Anyway, I'm glad to see you here. I can tell that you and Megan really love each other. That's great! Hang in there. My partner and I have been together 14 years. It hasn't always been easy (even bearable...lol) but love always stands the test of time, trials, whatever hardships life may bring. Keep growing stronger together.

                      Dawn, It was so great to meet you. You are a wonderful person. Thank you for all of your kind words. Unfortunately we won't be at the next support group, but we'll see you at the November one?

                          Welcome, Shannon. I feel like I should copy and paste what I just posted to Shelby Briefly, my partner, Debbie,and I have been together 13 years. Debbie's SCI occurred in 1969 when she was 13. Other injuries and illnesses have taken their toll over time on her health (she's had some incredibly back luck), but she was very independent for a long time.

                          It sounds like you and Megan could probably conquer the world together. Keep on keepin' on and I hope all continues to go very well for you both!
