hi there,

my name is sakinah and I have been a member for a while but have not really been on this site very much, but since I have got a new gift for a computer from my partner I can now easily come online. and get more involved.  I would love to get to know people in the same situation as myself and give advise support and feedback on this site.

I have end stage kidney failure and on dialysis, I also have osteomalacia and arthritis, with depressive disorder, bipolar and severe hearing disorder, so quite a complex variety of medical issues, so you can imagine how I can be to live with lol. anyway, I welcome anyone who wishes to post me messages and anything else.  im still new and learning to navigate the site so bare with me if I go away for a while or find it difficult in certain areas of the site.l

I do love to write, but I have not exactly practiced it at all yet, ive been to creative writing courses, iam also a trained secretarial admin, but unfortunately for many uy=years my medical conditions have held me back from achieving a lot of what I want to do with my various ambitions, I love sci fi
 stuff, and conspiracy theories.  I love to give my views, especially with those who are vulnerable and disabled, so I look forward to make many post hopefully and receiving post etc.

    @sakinah thankyou for sharing your story with us. I'm Tammy one of the volunteer community champions here on the site if you need a chat just message me and I'm happy to help. I read above that you are good and enjoy writing, I doing do it professionally I just journal alot to distract me from physical pain and find it can be useful.
    Hope to speak soon, stay safe.

    hey tammy,

    thanks for getting back to me so quickly, i used to journal too alot but i always stopped half way and never finished them, that just a thing with me starting and never finish have to get round that lol, anyway know you mentioned it i think i download an app on my desktop and start again it used to be so refreshing i just have to find a routinely quite time to do it all the time and continue with it, it would end up being about ten volume books lool !!  i also would like to share my experience on here to in the discussion groups etc and help share advice etc and make friends.

    you know what its a shame they dont have chat rooms it would be great to chat to people all over the world in the same predicaments and be able to relate so much to each other in so many areas either in one general room or many variety rooms depending on their medical needs and issuses what you think, you seem quite experienced on her as a champion  o:):).

    i look forward to more contact with you at any time feel free to message me for anything you need or advise etc.
    take care
