Hi,  I'm 44 and a full time powerchair user. I have Ehlers-danlos syndrome and pulmonary fibrosis. I spend a lot of time stuck in bed,  so being online keeps me sane.

    Hello @Weebles1703, and welcome to the community. Like @gnmeads, I am very sorry to hear about your health issues and I hope we may be able to be of some kind of help.
    You are very much among friends here, so please don't be shy of telling us about yourself or of asking any questions. The better we get to know you, the easier it will be to find ways to try to help and support you.
    If you're looking for folks to chat with, that's easily done  :) whilst if you're looking for benefits advice or anything of that kind we have masses of resources on site.
    Just let us know what you need, and we will do our best.
    Warmest best wishes to you
