I am a 54 year old man divorced with two grown off-spring. I enjoy sunny days and spending time with my family. I had a wife and a daughter for the first 8 years so that gave me an inspiration. I have also received some excellent care especially with carers employed by a professional agency. I like to travel a lot and any chance to get out of Palmerston North city is gleefully appreciated. There are no short cuts with tetraplegia and I have learnt patience. Disappointed not to have found a soul mate and very disappointed not to achieved employment.
Your injury is new so learn everything you can so you can stay away from expensive medical care. Try to be involved in as many community groups as interation with others and keeping busy is the key ( in my view).
The US is embroilled in electioneering and I hope Barack Obama is returned. New Zealand/Aotearoa is small and we need a positive and thriving America. I am pleased that the Bush administration has gone for everyone's sakes.
Interested in your thoughts.
