I'm a former occcupational therapist, but now I'm severely ill & disabled, & pretty much bed bound. Of course, this, combined with severe pain & chronic fatigue & a LOT of medications, has caused depression, sometimes more severe than others.

It's almost 30 years since I was taken out of work at the age of 25, so my knowledge of disability rightss is somewhat rusty, so when the advertisement for this group popped up on Facebook, I thought it might be helpful - not only for advice, but for support & friendship with other people in similar circumstances to me.

Looking forward to making new friends, though I don't tend to get on Facebook daily, just so you know I'm not ignoring you! LOL!
