    Hello David, @Davidfwchair and good to meet you. Welcome to our community. Perhaps you'd like to tell us a bit more about yourself and what we might be able to do for you?
    Warmest best wishes to you,

    I am mainly in a wheelchair and, I just want to connect with 
    other disabled people in wheelchairs.  Sometimes I find it boring 
    we will have to deal with it and, they say life goes on.

    Hi again, @Davidfwchair! So glad to hear from you.
    I've only been around here for a little while yet, so am mostly a 'listener and sharer', but I know there are plenty of others who will know more and will respond to you to support and advise you.
    I'm not in a wheelchair myself, but if that doesn't disqualify me as a 'friend' I would be very glad to hear more about you. Have to sign off for tonight as I'm not 100% well today, but I look forward to learning more about you.
    Warmest best wishes,
    Richard

    Hello @Davidfwchair
    welcome to the forums.
    i am not a wheelchair user myself, but am a white long cane user as am registered blind. 

    @steve51 you learn something new every day as I did not know that you are a wheelchair user yourself.

    Although I am fairly mobile I have my share of mobility issues especially with public transport!

    Be great to hear more from you @Davidfwchair
