Hello Folks

I'm a newbie just finding my way around. I am a victim of the DLA and Social Services Cuts and finding life extremely difficult to manage and cope with. I am a qualified hypnotherapist and psychotherapist working under the permitted work scheme.  A job I decided to do as I can work from home and I am in charge of my own diary and can try as best as I can to work around my multiple disabilities/health conditions. I came on the Scope site to look for advise and found this forum. I'm just looking for support. I know I'm not alone in what I am going through - but it feels like it. PS - is this forum private? 

Looking forward to getting to know you all. Hope I've posted in the right place.
