Hi, I have joined Scope to receive support when necessary and if I can help anyone along the way then, GREAT STUFF!
I have Fibromyalgia, Long term Anxiety & Depression along with severe Asthma and Bronchial issues.
I have a son that has just turned 18, and is off to Uni in September. He is my life and I am so very proud of all he has achieved and become.

    Hi @Debsy37 a warm welcome from me too. 

    Is your son leaving home to go to uni, that will be hard for you.

    I have a 13 year old son who is my rock and I dread the day he might want to leave home, I know it will be a while yet but something Im not really looking forward to

    Welcome to the community @Debsy37. :)

    How are you?
    Hi Chloe Thanks for your message. I’m not too bad at the moment but, like all the UK, it’s been hard. My mum has been very ill too so that made it that bit tougher- but we’re soldiering on xxx

    Hi Janer1967
    Yes he’s going to live on campus- it’s not financially viable to commute (trust me, I checked!! LOL)
    Ahhhh 13, the first steps into his teens! It is a dreading thought but when the time comes it won’t be as bad as you feel now xx

    Hi @Debsy37, sorry to hear your mum hasn't been very well. Do you have enough support at the moment?

    Your son's course sounds really interesting!
