    Hi folks, Happy New Year one and all. 
    I am oblate I have various health related conditions.  MPTSD, Depression,  Osteoarthritis Chronic Asthma an Atopic Eczema. I was a Regisard Clinical Nurse Teacher and RN.Psychiatry, 
    I have had various posts in training and lecturing. I have been self employed an employed. Now I am lost! I had many an varied hobbies which I enjoyed. I have mobility issues though I can walk I use walking aids. Employment would be difficult as I do have a lot ofweeks off sick. I feel there is no future I see posts advertised which I could do like compliance audits. 
    I do want something different. What can a person like me do?

    Hi @Oblate - It's good to hear from you again. I'm hoping you may be able to get some help from others here in Scope. To the right you'll see a link 'Support to Work' which you may find of interest. There's also some general information in the Online advice section, parts of which may be relevant to yourself. See: https://www.scope.org.uk/advice-and-support/work-careers/
    So many people with disabilities are valued by many employers that I hope the above information will help; if not please do say as other members may know of other resources. Just seems like a good idea to start here on Scope as they help lots of people. :)
    Please know here in this community we will continue to support you too. Have you stopped work at the moment?
