Hello, just joined. Recently started using a wheelchair so just thought I'd pop on to see if anybody else is in a similar situation and has advice maybe? Not sure what to ask lol. X

    Hi @nicolamkerr
                               How are you? How are things going? I hope that you are ok and if you wish to talk or ask questions please just ask. It can be difficult to adjust to using a wheelchair and it is not just the practical side, it can also have an impact emotionally. Please may I ask are you in your wheelchair full-time? Please remember if you feel like you need to talk, there are many lovely people on the forum who will be here to listen. Thank you.
