    Glad you are back, Todd...you have been missed.

    Is there anyone else still here who was a member of SpineWire (the first site sponsored by Dr. Young) or Cando! (the second and predecessor of this site)? I joined the former in 1997 as I remember.

    For those who are newer members, here is a brief history of the three sites' development and transition, written by Dr. Young in 2006:

      Jeff, who was at one time the admin here, was one of several people who had this as their signature: "~See you at the CareCure-used-to-be-paralyzed Reunion ~".

      I am not sure if he is still in the Philippines or back here in the USA. He stopped by here last in Jan. of this year: /forum/member.php?222-Jeff

        I was active 10+ years ago on my first account, DaleB. Went more anonymous since then due to a doxing issue (which has long since passed)

          Howdy Todd,

          I'm still here, but like the site itself, a little older and mellower.

          This place taught me waaaay more about dealing with sci than any human I had interaction with, plus gave me a sense of community too. Besides the fighting that erupted here, this place is kind of like a university, we gather together, learn how to live in this world, then move on to dealing with the world. When we can, we come back and visit, and just like going home again, we find it different than we remember. There are new faces that have taken our place, which is a good thing, also bad because of why we are all here, but that is life.

          I had a bad run of 3+ years of wounds and infections that really wore me down, physically and mentally, but I seem(and hope) to be on the end run of things and am looking forward again.

          I too miss some of the oldies, FO and rdf also being two of the best. I remember fondly of sitting on FO's treetop porch in the Keys, and tried to reach him when the last hurricane hit the Keys with no luck, I hope he is well wherever he's at.

          Welcome back, it's good to see you again, I steadfastly refuse to do FB, so this place is my point of contact with my sci friends.

            Man, I miss FO, around here, too. Epic conversations. Smart. Even. Tempered. Rapier like wit. Awesome dude. He's still alive, and swinging, McDuff, right where you left him, I have on good word, from a couple months ago.

                    I remember the first conversation that you and I had here...it was about Princess Diana, whom we both love(d).
                    I?m sorry to hear of your troubles. When I read about our first conversation, it?s as if you replaced a memory I?d forgotten?I do remember that! I can?t believe it?s that long ago, both Diana?s death, and our conversation about her.

                      Sadly, I don?t; it?s good to have you still around. I think people check in every now and then. I still hear of people connecting by texts or phone calls.

                        Thank you, KLD; 1997 was the year of my injury. It?s been quite an interesting two decades. You?ve been quite the staple in these forums. That?s remarkable!

                          Oh, yes! I remember your older account. Doxxing? Wow! I?d love to hear more of that story; my inbox is open.

                            I notice myself mellow a bit with age as well; I suppose that?s true for a lot of people. Sorry about your health issues, but yes, I empathize with you there, too.

                              Howdy, John! It’s good to see you’re still doing well.

                                Yes! It was on the 10th anniversary of her death. She'll be forever young and beautiful to us.
