    Hi @skelly1 - & welcome to the community. I'm not aware of any of our members having Brown-Sequard Syndrome, but we do have many members suffering from other neurological problems.
    However, most of us here are living with a disability & understand how many can feel alone, with no-one to talk to. So please know you are very welcome to talk about how you feel here.
    Please look around the different categories on the forum, & come for a chat in the 'Coffee lounge' too: https://forum.scope.org.uk/categories/coffee-lounge
