    Hi @Rodger and a warm welcome to our online community. It looks like you've cracked how to make a post, is there anything else we can help with?

    You can get to know the topics we talk about here by looking through our categories, whilst our recent discussions show you what people are talking about right now.

    I'm sorry your degenerative disc disease has progressed to you now using a wheelchair, have you adapted okay? And, do you feel supported enough as you're learning to navigate the world differently? It's a big change but I hope it makes mobilising that bit easier and less painful for you than before.

    Take care and I hope to speak more in the future.
