I am 38, C4/C5 quad paralyzed from the shoulders down for 14+ years now. Very lonely, VERY! Introducing myself, I guess!

    Hi! Welcome to the Community. I'm sorry to hear that you are lonely. What are you hoping to find here? Friend? Relationship? We do have the Peer & Family Support Program. You could possibly become a Peer Mentor. Please call 1-800-539-7309 or 973-467-8270 and ask to speak to an Information Specialist.  We can send you information on Support Groups and local resources in your area. We also have information on dating, if you are looking for that.

    Hi Munkypoop!

    Very clever name, by the way. This past year and a half social isolation has been more intense than normal. Hopefully things will improve soon. What types of things do you like to do for fun? What state do you live in?  

    I hope you have a good weekend!
