    Hello @redchicken43   Thank you for your post.

    Where to begin as so many.

    Main one being clean from addiction for 12 years ongoing.

    Being a community champion on this marvellous, wonderful forum and community. Two years.

    Being supportive of others and making new friends. Many are an important part of my life .

    Lots of experience, qualifications in many aspects of employment and business. plus running one.

    Highly successful for ten years. Riches to Rags now.

    Changing track to looking at diet, lifestyle and wellbeing getting qualifications around that in my middle forties yet I tried unsuccessfully to be employed.

    Became and found my faith again through the addiction the road to recovery.

    Lots of volunteering and using my skills and knowledge, attributes to create herb gardens for resource centres.

    I am now middle fifties .

    Take care.

    Throughout the last 20 years of living with a chronic disability, I have offered help, advice through my own experiences, to help other people with their own illnesses.

    It always feels good when someone says my words have helped.

    This is my positive side to disability.

    I should have really got the ball rolling. Got to say that my biggest achievement and success in life has got to be my kids. Both are doing well at school with one off to university next year with any luck and being employed the most part and of course contributing to forums like this.Truth be told I would like to go on an adventure to raise money for Scope and have some ideas floating around in my head at the moment.

    Working part time after leaving education. My biggest achievement is holding down 2 jobs at the same time.

    This is a great idea @redchicken43! Thank you for posting!

    I think my biggest achievement has been writing my blog and the opportunities I have had from that. :)
