    Hi, my name is CJ and I went from being a Master Instructor last contract working in Mexico, to being 98% bed bound. I have recently found a supplement that has given me my life back. So...after 5 years, I REALLY want to go diving again at Gulliver's Lake (Ontario - south of Guelph - Hwy 6/African Lion Safari) this Sunday.

    My friend Oren is willing to take me, but because I am still weak, we reasonable need 1 more person to help me exit the water. I am still regaining my ability to walk and I'm still using a wheelchair or crutches for energy conservation. I know I can get in the water, I know I can dive, even if I don't go far :) My only concern is getting back out of the water when I'm tired.

    I plan to gear up and gear off in water to make this transition easier.

    So anyone who might be willing to help this Sunday, could you please contact me: 226-755-2647

    ~~ocean hugs~~
    Ms CJ Janzen

    P.S. if anyone has a camera for surface/underwater, I'd love to document my re-entry back into scuba after 5 years of thinking I'd never dive again!
