Hi, my name is CAC!

Hi, I'm new to the community and have only just discovered SCOPE, despite being disabled for over 3 years after major spinal surgery. No one tells you where to go for help and advice, they just say sorry you can't stand and walk like you used to!

    I wrote a long piece about my experiences that I thought I had posted, but don't see it here.  I am a bit confused about how to post or reply. I don't do social media at all, so if it is like that then I am stumped.  It doesn't seem to work like any forum I have belonged to before.
