    New User Introduction

    Hello. I look forward to learning from the members of CareCure.net. I’m a para, T8 incomplete. My first SCI was decades ago due to a cancerous tumor on my spinal cord. Most recently I have had two additional SCIs during the past six years. I was born under a bad sign or maybe more realistically a bad spinal cord.

          Welcome to CC! It's a great place to get suggestions, support, etc. I've benefitted a lot from information about disability related equipment. I am paralyzed from Polio decades ago and currently navigating old age issues to try to stay independent. I push a manual wheelchair indoors; when I go out I use my ZX1 scooter which attaches to my wheelchair as I'm unable to push outdoors anymore due to shoulder weakness.
          Do you work or are you retired? Your profile indicates you stay active.

            I’m retired, not necessarily by choice, but do a lot of volunteer work at both the local and national level. I’m also an avid gardener, and have two hens and a cat which don’t require much time but somehow I spend a lot of time with them. I’m finding that I don’t accomplish much these days even though I always feel busy. No one has ever said this but I was born with a “bad” spinal cord as a tumor was discovered at T10 when I was 14. Then 40 something years later I had a bleed in the same area. Four years after that I contracted sepsis in the hospital which turned into an unusual bacteria which started eating my spine. Fusion T4-8 and hopefully threes the charm.
