Hi. Thanks for the add. A bit about me. I have a disability called Spastic Paraplegia....cause unknown. I have lived with it for 20 years and a bit. Hate it as it make me very dependent on other people for many things and I get really frustrated.But there`s not a thing I can do about it. Anyone else got the same?

    Hi @pollyanna1052 and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you and thank you for sharing with us.  I too have to rely on support from others because of my disability (I have Spina Bifida) so can understand how frustrating this is as I sometimes feel like this also.  I hope you enjoy your time on the Community as there are many great people on here all willing to support.  If there is anything we can help you with at all then please just ask.  All the best.  :smiley:
