Please feel free to reach out to me. We can build up each other. Help one another. I’m so tired of being the only person in my whole town that is in a wheelchair. The stares, the smart comments etc. The little town I’m from. I’m the only paraplegic in the county. We don’t have any support groups. My parents have been…

Looking for advice 1 year anniversary of my spinal cord injury is close.

Posted by Elizabeth Marie Cole on July 3, 2020 at 9:57am 4 Comments

With my one year anniversary coming up soon my mind is all over. Plus depression is still there. Any advice I’m happy to accept. I’m still learning basic task but am getting… Continue
