Going out and socialising
Sustaining a spinal cord injury (SCI) can feel socially isolating and you will probably be removed from your “before injury” environment for some time while you recover. Making that decision to get back into socialising whether you are newly injured or not, can be fraught with obstacles and can appear overwhelming. If you are newly injured, you may not have been with friends or family in a social setting for some time and you could be feeling nervous. At Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA) we say that practice makes perfect so we recommend you prepare as best you can and allow yourself plenty of time – and no doubt you will learn along the way.
Our friendly team members are here to help and guide you, answering any questions that you might have.
