Hi everyone, am new here. It’s difficult for me to get advice on things. If it’s not written down I forget within a few hours, I hardly ever go out even before the virus, as I find it difficult to face people and places especially new ones. I just go blank and go home. Had quite a few health problems and it all gets too much some days. I hope I can get advice about things here that I find normally difficult. Hope everyone is safe .
          Regards Gillian.
