Hi real name Lorraine, had a GBM stage 4 and so many issues since, lucky to be here after 2 years. Every day is a blessing even though stressful and demanding . disabled people need more assistance not hurdles to climb over.

    Hello Lorraine @Bobzzii and a very warm welcome to you. Glad to have you with us.
    GBM is a new one to me :blush: is it the Glioblastoma that Google suggests? Would be grateful if you could tell me more - provided you are happy and willing to. Whatever it is you've obviously fought a good fight and I am honoured to make your acquaintance.
    You are right about the 'hurdles' of course. I've just watched part 4 of "School" on TV, largely about the impact budget cuts are having on 'special needs' provision. The situation overall just gets more and more awful.
    Very warmest best wishes to you,
