Hi Butch, I'm a c6-7 very incomplete SCI woman and I've been in the chair 23 years. I'm 49 though I reverted back to 25 and that's where I'm staying. I'm unemployed at this time so i volunteer at an assisted living home. I exercise between 3-5 hours a day, because I believe, you don't use it you lose it. Also, God helps those who help themselves. I put God first in my life and believe in heaven, because I've been there. You take care, I'll say a prayer for you. God bless!
