    Hello @Doglady and a big welcome to our online community.  I'm glad you stumbled across us :)

    Well, what a shock that must have been for you.  I just can't imagine.  Did you get a diagnosis?  

    Lots of our members have had similar experiences of becoming 'suddenly disabled' and it certainly takes some adjustment.  I hope we can offer you support.  

    I think you'd enjoy our virtual coffee lounge where we like to have random chats and play games.  Also, browsing our categories might bring you to a topic you can relate to.  Feel free to jump into any conversations and get involved.

    By the way, going by your name I'm guessing you either have a dog or like them!  If you have one, what breed is it?  

    Talk soon and give me a shout if you need any help.
