    I know nothing of where you live so can't offer local information.

    However, you're on the internet and you know where you are. Perhaps you can look for support groups in your area? Or look up places that you can travel to or be taken to whereby you can sit and talk with either others with the same disabilities or professionals that will understand your situation and help you through it.

    And I know it's not helpful but I know a young women (she's 25 now) that is now blind due to a bungee jump four years ago.

    Of course she struggled enormously with the total loss of her sight but with help, love and support she's now adjusted and leads a wonderful life - you'd struggle to find a more content person.

    I'm not in your position and can only imagine the difficulties you're experiencing. But I'm not wrong when I say that you're not alone - and don't need to be.

    Start looking for support groups. Turn to family and friends and if they don't understand - then you will have to find the strength to deal with this yourself.

    It's all very new to you, judging on when you seem to have become paralyzed and it is early days. Give it more time, look for help (where you can find what it is you need - HubPages is a writing site I'm afraid) and hopefully you will learn to accept, understand and adjust to your situation.

    I wish you luck and hope you manage to find the help you need.

    You may want to check out this website   http://www.betsysupportpage.com/

    You may find the support you need there?  I wish there was more I could do to help.

    First I'd like to say I am sincerely sorry for your situation, and that I hope it improves soon.  There has been some pretty good answers so far, however I'd also like to encourage you to continue to reach out to the HubPages community, because I've seen a wide array of situations addressed here.  It appears many have gotten satisfaction through communication with fellow hubbers.
