    2 years post today

    Well, today was my 2 year anniversary. I was very busy running around doing errands which was good. I didn't have to sit at home thinking about how much i missed doing everything i used to do. I get to do all that thinking tonight as I sit in bed.

    What have some of you done on your anniversaries? I had thought about getting a cake but didn't do that today since I was out of the house all day. I just hope this year will be a better year. No hospital stays or surgeries!! Thanks everyone for your encouragements and support! It really means a lot.

    Congratulations! That's a great achievement, to make it 2 years.

    I just hit my 2 year anniversary about 2 weeks ago!

    What do I do on anniversaries? Once a week, I meet with my friends at the park, so we can chat and all of our kids can play together. So far, on my 1st and 2nd anniversary, I have brought popsicles for every kid at the park, both our kids and every other kid who happens to be there.

    Sometimes I think people might think it's a strange thing to "celebrate", but I tell them that I look at it this way -- I'm celebrating that I've made it through. Look what I got through for 2 years. And what you got through, too! It's pretty impressive of an accomplishment. That's why I'm celebrating! :-)

    Let us know what you end up doing for your anniversary.

          I'm <10 months post, I've often heard that the first 2 years is the "make or break" interval for most sci's. Do you guys feel like you're over the hump, so to speak? I still have bad days, emotional times but no more than pre-sci considering I don't work nowadays..

            Ya, I do feel like I'm over the hump. Somewhere around 1.6 years I started feeling that way. :-)

                i think you should seek help.. it is very sick to celebrate the day your life was fucked up for ever...i dont think anyone sane would do that... and you say that you celebrate that you got through it, but everybody does get through it..

                  Wow, that's a lovely thought.

                  Blessings to you on your SCI day, Anna.

                    Congratulations Anna! I wish you a hospital free year next year.

                    And MV 740, not everyone gets through it. I celebrate every month that I get to spend time with my family, watching my grandson grow, and spending time out at movies, eating, and just plain having fun with my husband.

                      I personally think you are the one that should seek help. People deal with their anniversaries of their injuries in different ways. You saying no one sane would celebrate it is totally wrong. Some are happy they are alive, and that is why they celebrate it. Some have reflection of what was lost and what they have now, and some do not even realize they passed their anniversary.

                      It is also an uneducated statement to say that all gets through it. Many people do not. Some retreat and some take their own lives.

                      We all lost something...but do not state uneducated statements about how people deal with their anniversary. How you deal with something is not how everyone deals with it.

                        Congrats! I think it was about 2 years before I felt over the hump. When I made it through my first quarter back in college was just about that point.

                        I never considered celebrating the date. Now it's been so long I couldn't even tell you the date.

                            Congrats for getting through the first two years Anna and best wishes for your future.

                              You hit the nail on the head wheeliecoach! "We are happy to be alive, that is why we celebrate it". We are SCI survivors!

                              Congrats on your 2 years and I hope there will be many more celebrations.
