My memory is severely damaged and I cannot speak English.
Because of this language problem, I can't communicate with anyone

    Hi @mostafa338, welcome to the community. Thanks for sharing your story with us, and I'm sorry to hear you have pain. I hope you're doing well today.

    I can understand that it must be difficult to find places to talk to other Iranian disabled people in your native language. I found a charity called Pouyesh that have a database of organisations for Iranian people in the UK. Perhaps you could email or phone them to see if there's anything they can help you with.

    Unfortunately, we can only speak English on the community, but I hope you can still find some support here 😊

    Hello Mostafa

    I hope you are feeling better today. I also know about pain and have been treated for chronic pain for 35 years. It is very wearing and debilitating and can lead to emotional and mental problems. Mostafa, never give up fighting, tomorrow is a gift, another beautiful day. I fight every day for my children and grandchildren. Seeing them growing, smiling and being happy means I can endure my pain (most of the time) with a smile on my face too. Sending you best wishes.
