    Hi Alex, well what can I say? I'm 55 years old but in my head I'm much younger. By trade I have been a college lecturer for twenty years teaching mostly 16 to19years old, who have emotional and/or behaviour problems for a vast number of reasons. Demanding job,but so very rewarding. I am in the process of retiring on health grounds. I've had a few years of rubbish health culminating in an above the knee left leg amputation and a nice dose of sepsis. I have been diabetic since I was 7years old and had a kidney and pancreas transplant 5 bears ago. Unfortunately during my sepsis episode the pancreas transplant failed so I'm insulin dependent once more. That's jjust about sums up what led me to Scope, but I have more to me than that,it'll have to wait for now though, it's evening meal time now. Will be back ,probably in the next day or two. Toodle pip for now. Kay.
