Hi. I read the discussions here and I have decided to have a say. I appreciate all the uplifting discussion on being active and athletic, but I am not and never was very physically adapt. I always wanted to be but hard as I tired I am just not athletic. So I keep reading all the stories of people that snowboard, ski and marathon after finding themselves in a wheelchair. I am SO proud for you, but I can't do that. I was reasonably active and fit, and find myself stuck in a chair. I can't run, ski or achieve an spectacular event now as I couldn't before my accident. I am an average person, trying to lose weight, stay healthy and most important become a happy active giving part of society in a wheelchair. I have lost my job and my home and have to live on the disability. I can't invest in special equipment. I can't even afford to modify a car to drive myself. I feel stifled and dependant. I love that some people can peruse special events and talents, but there has to be many people like me that can't even get physical therapy, never mind special activates. Please do not think I begrudge those that have wonderful talents, or abilities. But I don't have finance or abilities. I just want to hear from average folks that are broke and lonely and want to resume some semblance to the caring, giving life we tried to live prior to our accidents. Terrie

I ran across this on a friend's facebook page. It's not quite my style of coping, but you may be interested. I'm just offering so you can check it out. No obligation at all. Deborah

I would like to speak to you about the book I have written to help people with "disabilities." It has now been published and is available on amazon, barnes&noble and trafford.com.

I am trying to get the word out about it and help as many people as I can. I have many tips I have learned over the last 14 years since my accident, positive messages, jokes, importance of staying close to those around you and those you have lost, and the importance of achieving your dreams and staying positive no matter the circumstances.

Please get back to me when you can. Thanks!

hi Jesse. If you tell me the name of your book, I will order a copy online and perhaps I can make better recommendations then. But in general, there are several things you can do. Of course there is the social media and in Facebook,, you can pay extra money for a few days to get a "boost" and people who read your page and you could even have it targeted. You could start a webpage with a discussion.. Have a virtual book club.. Of course, you could also hire a publicist, but that can be pretty pricey. You can give talks to schools, parent groups, religious organizations, rehab facilities (for both patients and staff)
anyway, hope that is a good place for you to start. Good luck!

thank you my dear friend. Perhaps one day we shall meet. In the interim, I have an Indian friend who returns to India every year.. Perhaps if you tell me a bit about where you live I could get the information back to her. It would be nice if we met by proxy!

Happy Birthday, Dan!!! The Bruce Springsteen concert you went to sounds like it was a lot of fun; just sorry you're suffering the day after!
