Looking to make new friends in the Southwest.

Hello, I’m Elliot and I’m 23. I live in Devon and I’m currently studying oceanography and coastal processes at university. I have syringomyelia and oligodendroglioma of the spinal cord which was first diagnosed when I was 11. So far I’ve had five operations but can luckily still walk, although as a result of the ops some problems have been caused. I would describe myself as quite an active and outgoing person considering my condition. I’m just looking to make new friends in the Southwest with the same condition to me or similar conditions, as I’ve never met anyone with the same/similar conditions as me. My family and friends are great but would be nice to talk and hang out with people that have been through similar experiences in life as me.

    Hi @Elliot93 welcome to the community - this is a friendly place to chat with others so I hope you will get involved and enjoy it here.

    Have you ever seen Meet Up? You can find social groups based on location and interest and might be worth you looking at.
