    Just came home after 4 months

    Hi,

    New fella here. I had a motorcycle accident on Aug. 29th and was in the hospital, acute rehab and nursing home for a total of 4 months. I don't remember how I went down. I probably ran over gravels. My bro. says I slammed into a utility poll. Anyhows, I just wanted to say hi and hopefully learn from everyone here. Oh yeah, I'm a T3 complete.

    Hi Tin, I'm fairly new to the forum, too, although not new to paraplegia. This is a great site -- welcome. I'm learning that the saying here is "we're sorry you had to find us but glad you did" Nice, huh? Good luck. Every day's a new adventure.

              Hi Tin, this site is a fabulous resource. Hope you are doing OK, the first 12-24 months are difficult and this site can be a huge help. Stay strong!

                  Welcome home!

                  I was away 6 months total & couldn't wait to get home. I found it bittersweet though. It was somewhat isolating & hard being confronted w/ being unable to do things like before. Same 'ole house,different situation.
                  It got much easier though & there's now nothing like home.

                  Good luck. Post whenever & search whatever. The more you know, the better you'll be!

                    Hi Tin,
                    Welcome to CCC, and glad you are home again. The first bit being home can be overwhelming, but remember it does get better as you adapt.

                        Howdy Tin,

                        There's quite a few of us riders here. I don't remember my wreck either, and probably glad of it. I was sitting at a red light and got rearended by a car doing ~50mph, I'm a T10.

                        Get ready for some weird feelings being home. Rehab is kinda like a cocoon, coming home is like busting out into your new world. Lots of happiness, pissed off'edness, some oh shit, times ahead.

                              Welcome Tin! Great place to come! I have learned so much here as a caregiver for my daughter (C6/C7 incomplete).
