    Heya @flick79 I'm so sorry to hear about your ex husband.  It sounds like they're wanting to hurt you by calling you used goods, so please don't take any notice of them!
       Many wheelchair users are in very happy, loving and fulfilling relationships, there's even several dating sites/app made especially for disabled people.

    @flick79 navigating health challenges demands extraordinary strength and courage. Always hold onto the understanding that your worth transcends external judgments. Despite the current difficulties, the future is brimming with endless possibilities. I acknowledge that your ex-husband's hurtful words about being "used goods" have affected your confidence, but with time, I truly believe you will rediscover both your confidence and inherent worth.

    Your ex-husband's role in your life is just a small chapter in your remarkable story. Brighter days await you, and I'm confident that, in time, you will find a new, meaningful relationship with someone who appreciates you for the incredible person you are.

    Hello @flick79 I am sorry your ex is being so nasty. Do you go out to social events where you meet other people? Perhaps in the New Year you could join a local club near you. Your Council should have a list of those available. Take care.
    Unfortunately i don't have the confidence i haven't been out socially since becoming poorly
