It’s wonderful to know that I am part of a community that understands me.  As a disabled person, at times its a struggle and have very low moments like so many of you, but together we lift each other’s spirit, which gives me personally the strength to get through the everyday pain I am in.

Thank you all so much for accepting me into this valuable community.

    Hello Chell and welcome

    It is great to have you as part of our community, we all need support from time to time. Being disabled comes with its own trials as we all know but so does just living. Support is so vital for all people, the young need our support and guidance to grow, even though they don't apprieciate it. The elderly need our support even if they don't want it. Our partners and friends need our support and love even when we are taken for granted or we take them for granted. People in all walks of life are discriminated against out of fear.  Being part of this community with the support and love from all the members really does help even in the darkest times

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
