Newly disabled and isolated
Hi everyone, I have been disabled for around a year, and have not seen any friends nor gone out with any in this time. I am unable to walk and am also unable to push myself in a chair so I am stuck with a transit chair. Which means I would always need someone to help me leave the house and get to meet my friends, which is something I just do not have access to. I am so isolated, and feel like I have lost my whole identity. I am an adult yet I feel like a toddler. Can anyone help me at all on how I can possibly improve my situation? I just want my independence back. I talk to friends on the internet but that is it. It is so upsetting that I am expected to just be isolated indefinitely.
