    What do you want to do first?

    So hypatheticly. If you where to be cured tomorrow, what would you do first? Other than the obvious sex, bathroom, shower all that stuff. If I could I would sign up for the military, its one of my biggest regrets. Other than that I would pick up a baseball and play catch. I was still playing competitive ball when I was hurt so baseball is near and dear to my heart and I miss it more than anything. So what would y'all do?

        I would grab grass with my toes like Jake in Avatar and just run until I can't catch my breath...

            Have operations for all the parts of my body I messed up over the last 43 years. Then travel the whole U.S. by truck. That is if am still alive after all the parts I messed up after my injury.

              33yrs to think about it and it's never going to happen. These questions have been posited here before.

              I miss diving. Baseball. Sand and grass between my toes. Climb a mountain. Sail parts of the world for the rest of my life.

                Have always told my parents that one of the first things I would do is dive off of the pier where I was hurt.

                  Just trying to start a conversation. You can feel free to go be pissed of at the world in another thread if you would like.

                    gjnl has been a long time member of CareCure and he has a vault of knowledge on spinal cord injuries and their secondary complications. Its comments like yours that are uncalled for and against the rules for posting on CareCure; no personal character attacks.

                    gjnl spends a lot of time writing his professional answers to questions people post. He could be spending time with his family or doing other things with his time but instead he helps people here at CareCure. Several weeks ago someone attack him and piped in and asked him to return to CareCare because of his wealth of knowledge that he has acquired over the years. We don't want to loose people like him because of a smart ass comment.

                    This is the best web site on the Internet about spinal cord injuries and it is global. Don't piss off other member by immature comments. You asked a question. He gave you an answer. If you don't like it. Live with it. Don't attack other CareCure members because there are other people in this forum that have a wealth of knowledge and we don't want to loose them. Everyday someone sustains a spinal cord injury and they are seeking answers. This is the place to find them.

                    If I were you I would delete your comment or asked the moderator to remove it.

                    It's bad enough that we live with a spinal cord injury/disease let alone to be attacked on this forum. Grow up and exercise some responsibility by respecting the comments of others.

                      Er, gjnl actually asked a question to which he got a reply. If he isn't interested in the thread just don't bother revisiting it...

                        I would resume my tango lessons and dance in every milonga I could find.

                          I'm not pissed at the world. I've been quadriplegic for 35 years. I had a successful career, am enjoying a fulfilling retirement, have a lovely home, best of all, a beautiful and caring wife of nearly 49 years, and dear friends and family. I'm a happy guy.

                          I should have been more precise in my question. My take on conversations like this is that they aren't forward looking, really aren't very positive. Looking back on what might have been, what could have been doesn't help us look forward and make every day we have better than the day before. Just my take. Sorry I didn't mean to rain on your thread or detract from replies.

                          Note to Ti: Thanks for you kind words.

                            Ti,
                            I didn't attack anyones character. If the moderator feels it should be removed then they should remove it but I'm not deleting a damn thing. He asked a question and he got an answer. I did not attack anyone. If that hurt his feelings enough to quit care cure, then just....wow. You are correct he is very knowledgeable. I have read many things they have written and learned from them. I have been around care cure for almost ten years.

                            Somebody attacked some one's character "Grow up and exercise some responsibility by respecting the comments of others." but it wasn't me or gjnl!
                            I will wait for an apology lol!

                              No problem. Congrats on your career, family an life, I wish you all the best. I was injured 10 years ago and even though I don't have a wonderful wife like yours. I to have a wonderful family, friends and career. Which i have started two companies as a quad. Thank you for what you have done for the SCI community. Not looking for a pat on the back just saying you or no one else knows how much money I contribute to the SCI community. Having said that the reason I asked the question is because I had a dream last night about it and was curious what everyone would do. Not trying trying to cure or forward the SCI community with this thread I just wanted to have a conversation about it.

                              Thank you again for what you do and have done for carecure.
