    welcome Daisy, I had multiple strokes which left me with no feeling down my left side, apraxia, eyesight problems, PTSD, severe depression and anxiety amongst all the things. I’m still getting used to using this. I have to use a microphone to text as I cannot, type yet?

    I am hoping to find people with similar problems who I can relate to and also find friends as I seem to have lost mine since my illness unfortunately. I hope we both find some comfort in this group

    Thank you for the welcome Hammy57.

    I am so sorry to hear that you lost your friends when you became ill. Seems we share some similar illnesses so if you would like a new friend who understands then you've got one in me.

    I hope you find comfort in this group too.
