Why have the Greater Orlando Spinal Cord Injury Network?

The character Leo McGarry on the show The West Wing tells a story to a subordinate/mentee in the second season episode, "Noël":

This guy's walkin' down a street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can't get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, "Hey you! Can you help me out?" The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole, and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, "Father, I'm down in this hole; can you help me out?" The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. "Hey, Joe, it's me. Can ya help me out?" And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, "Are ya stupid? Now we're both down here." The friend says, "Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out."

Before I get a lot of angry emails and calls from doctors and clergy, they both are groups of wonderful caring people who do great things and help in so many ways in their own manner. We still need other things they can't give us.  They are still on the outside looking in and don't personally know all the feelings we have.

We all fell in the "hole" when we recieved our injury.  We have learned things ourselves or from others that we can pass along to those who haven't learned the same things. Even if you feel that you are only learning from others, there will be a newer injury you can teach when your time comes.  This learning can happen in a support group, at a social event like a picnic or a party, and at lectures with speakers.

Not everything has to be about learning. The Greater Orlando Spinal Cord Injury Network is a group where you can just be yourself. You aren't going to stick out or be different. Sure your situation is unique. On the other hand, please believe we all have had all the feelings and struggles you have had. So why not laugh, fellowship, share, support, ask, and answer with people who are closer to understanding you then almost any other person on the planet?

You already belong, why not join?
