    Hi Everyone, l am new to this group, well actually a year but have never plucked up the courage before to write anything. Well here goes. I am 55 and have had to live on benefits for the last few years due to severe arthritis. I miss working so much. These days I never see anyone and can feel so isolated. Being on strong medication l find it hard to get out. I am also a brittle diabetic. And suffer with depression.Sorry for the long intro.
