Always felt different to everyone else, but I'm recently coming to terms with the fact I am 'disabled' still hate that horrible umbrella term, but that's me, I'm different, I'm weird, I'm an oddball. I'm hoping to meet some like-minded people who understand that.

    Hi @JonnyCosmo - Welcome to this friendly community. I've still not come to terms with the fact I'm disabled even tho I have a genetic disorder that has 'disabled' me. As Steve says, we all have disabilities here, acknowledged or not! I'm sure you'll find this a very supportive community, as we all try to help each other. Please join in with any discussions; visit our virtual 'Coffee lounge' for somewhere we talk about our interests, etc. rather than our disabilities (there are links at the top of the page to these), as well as chat here too. :)

    Hi @JonnyCosmo Welcome to the community great to have you on board. It is hard coming to terms with a disability and the feeling you are different but everyone is different not just those with a disability 

    As the others have said you have come to the right place and we support each other where we can

    I look forward to seeing you around
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can't help I will
