  • 24th Anniversary

    Turned out to be just another day, I did not even realize until 9 pm when my wife said something about the date and I looked at my watch.

    Congrats on being a survivor...and all that you have done with your life since your injury. Many people look at their injury date as a new birthday, but always tinged with sadness too. We're glad you survived!

      One, five, ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five, thirty, thirty-five years...were they milestones. Not for me, just another day...but that doesn't mean NL and I didn't raise a glass of champagne, just because it was another opportunity to raise another glass of champagne to a life in passage.

      Donno, NL and I toast you and your 24th!

          Congratulations! You are one tough fella.

          I call mine "Unhappy Anniversary" - this year my 68th.

              I'm glad to learn it was the anniversary of your injury and not the anniversary of your wedding.

                  Well done Donno. I don't know if I can go that far but, if I do, you can congratulate me then. Rock on dude.

                      Thanks, everyone. I did have a happy 50th Wedding Anniversary back in November, and I did NOT discover that at the end of the day!! (I can tell 'cause I still have my testicles...)

                        Congratulation, I know what you mean, I had my 40th in February but now I can't even remember the exact day. Never thought that would happen but I think it's a good thing, it means I'm not dwelling on the past. Here's to the next forty. Cheers

                          20 hit me and started an escalation of worry. (I was 32 then). 25 I started to have failures with my bladder. The last ten years have progressively been worse with pressure sores, infection, osteo, prolapse of the uterus/bladder and now bowel, though I'm stable now that I've been off work for 3yrs. I'm 32yrs in as of the end of July 2017 ... you're just a young'un! lol

                          This life isn't for the weak.
