    Tammyjane33......good for you to be so positive and I do hope your plans all come to fruition.

       I can't see me being around in 5 years, too many things going wrong or getting worse. I'll  be 76 by then and that's probably long enough. Not pessimistic, just realistic.

    Best wishes.

    @Tammyjane33 Getting married would be wonderful, hope it happens for you!

    @exdvr Sorry to hear that, I hope you have good friends and family to support you. I am sure you have made some supportive friends on our forum as well.

    If things go okay with where I volunteer, I would like to have got paid employment in the charity sector and maybe do some volunteering work in Canada.

    Not in Canada I am in London. At some point in the medium term I want to do a volunteering programme there for a while. I will be looking to go for a short holiday in Canada before this.

    Hi Tammyjane33 
    Over the last 20 years I have been fully aware of the nature of my disability, auditory processing disorder (APD), which first first came to light when our eldest son was diagnosed back in the late 1990s.
    When I started to research his diagnosed issues i soon discovered that i had been living with these issues all of my life. 
    I was the first adult in the UK to be diagnosed as having APd back in 2003, which was done partially to help the Medical Research Council (MRC) gain government funding for a 5 year APD research program, they needed some one to set up and run a support organisation for those who may have APD. I set up and helped run the APDUK , and MRC program ran 2004-2009.
    All of my family, 3 sons, my wife and me, now have a clinical diagnosis of having APD, which is a listening disability or the brain having problems processing what the ears hear. and is the main underlying cognitive cause of developmental dyslexia.
    But post diagnosis we have had little or no support from the local NHS or support agencies, I have been through disability discrimination in the workplace, and since then no employer would even answer any of my job applications, Our sons are having issues finding careers and sustainable jobs.
    I have had enough of the stress and the failure of UK audiologists, speech and language and psychologists the multi discipline team who the MRC should be providing life long support, to provide any support and understanding or even discuss the possible 4 types of our disability. So it is all down to these corrupt so called medical professionals who only want to hide their ignorance and incompetence while massaging their egos,
    I have had enough.
