    Hi Benjy, you don't give us much information. As I am sure you know, Hemiplegia means that one side of your body is affected usually as a result of some type of neurological damage to the right side of the brain if you have left sided hemiplegia. You say you are affected as an adult so is this an acquired disability - maybe as a result of an accident? How are you affected and how severe are the effects? There is a charity called HemiHelp which may be able to give you more information - just depends on what support you feel you need and what questions you have.
