    Hi @Kimld, welcome to our community! How are you doing today? It certainly sounds like you've had quite the journey this past year. I've had a near-death experience but I've never been in a coma before, how has recovering from it been? I'm glad to hear you're walking around again, I'm sure with time things will get faster :) It must feel good to have some mobility again? 

    If you'd rather talk about something other than your health then why not tell us about a hobby or your favourite thing to do during your free time? Got a favourite show you love to watch?
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
