I am disabled, my spine is collapsing in a very rare and unique way. Approximately 1/4 is now damaged leaving me little ability to walk, considerable pain and mental health issues due to isolation. With the NHS and Social groups having washed their hands of me because they simply do not understand I am trying to rehabilitate myself without even the help of my family. My condition is progressive so things are only going to get worse.

    Ty for the reply. I haven't been on a board for some time and I left the last one because all I ended up doing was moaning about everything that went wrong. Hope to do better now.
