Remaining politically neutral during General Election 2024

Under guidance from the Electoral Commission and Charity Commission, it's important that Scope remains politically neutral during General Elections.

While we understand that this period will see many passionate discussions and do not want to discourage open discussion, we cannot allow discussions which are purely intended to influence voting.

As ever, please make sure that your comments remain respectful of other people's opinions and keep to our online community house rules.

Good morning all.
Im new here and want to say hello.
I am living with chronic pain fibromyalgia and crumbling discs in my spine. I am unable to walk anymore. I also rattle from the tens of pills I need to take everyday.

    Hello @Alytude and a warm welcome to the community. We are very glad to have you and, of course, very sorry to hear of your pain.
    That said, how can we help you with it? One thing we can do is refer you to the categories here where fellow-sufferers 'hang out'. One good place for that would be the Dealing with chronic pain forum and the Dealing with chronic pain group which is the first post you'll see at the top of the forum. Feel free to join in and comment - it's a very good way to make new acquaintances.
    In the meantime don't hesitate to ask us any questions or to tell us anything about yourself that might help us to help you.
    Very warmest best wishes to you,
