Hi, my name is Andrew!

jimmyAndrew Community member Posts: 4 Listener
My name is Andrew I have just turned 64 and I have mild cerebral palsy, which in my case hardly impacts my mobility so i am able to live independently and without any assistance. I do however have a distinctive limp and limited use of my right arm which has meant that I have been subjected to bullying and discrimination in the past, and because I am on my own with no local network of friends and family to support me I have begun to feel very isolated and vulnerable, particularly since i have had new neighbours move in who I suspect maybe trying to take advantage of me!
I am normally a happy optimistic person but along with all the other financial and discriminatory worries of these dark times we live in I am feeling increasingly depressed. So I am looking for some support, advice and like minded people in a similar situation who I can share problems with and maybe help.
