    @jini Hello and welcome to the community, its nice to welcome you. I am a community champion here at scope. You say you are looking for support. Have you spoken to your GP at all to refer you for support, or maybe social services. You can self refer to social services through your local council this is called a care needs assessment and the form can be found on the gov.uk site. An occupational therapist will visit you at home and make suggestions and recommendations on any care, adaptions or equipment you may need. I hope this helps I will also tag in another champion who can give you advise on mental health support @thespiceman can you assist with this

    if you are able to get in touch with your social worker or OT they can arrange physio for your physical struggles and about speaking to someone professional about your mental health too. Also if you want to study and are bedridden you might want to try an online course try and get someone close to arrange it. Don’t let anything stop or anyone there’s always a way so stay positive.

    Hi @jini and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you and thank you for sharing with us.  I am sorry to hear of your health struggles.  You have been given very good advice and information above and I hope you will find this to be useful to you.  What kind of course are you wishing to study?  I have done a couple of online courses myself and really enjoyed them and I am sure you will too.  Good luck with finding what you are looking for and please keep in touch and let us know how you are getting on.  If there is anything we can help/support you with then please just ask.  All the best.  :smile:
