 Hi everyone, I'm Lisa. 

I have multiple health conditions and my employment allows my to work with people with health conditions and disabilities and that is how I've found my way to this forum. 

I'm very excited to work my way round what Scope has to offer as we all need support and a lifeline, especially in the current climate, isolation is a horrible thing!  I'm currently working from home, whilst it suits me and to be honest I'd quite happily stay here I know not everyone feels the same.  Isolation can increase anxiety and other mental health issues so what a great tool to have to speak to people.

I can't wait to have a bimble about and see what's available on here.  As we say everyday is a school day and the more society learns to support those of us with health conditions and disabilities the more the world will become a better place to be!

Have a safe and happy day all.

Lisa x

    Welcome @lisajane73 and may I compliment you on your use of the word 'bimble', it's totally one of my favourites.

    Thankyou ? love the old words,  my mom potters, loves pottering about, what she does is anyone's business ? I've just been pottering! Love it!  Day has been good,  welded 2my sofa working from home.   However I'm a lucky one,  I have a job and I'm safe.  Extremely lucky in the current climate.   Very scary uncertain times.   I have told everyone about the Scope site today,  helping to grow such a fabulous community and helping each other along the way...... stay safe,  stay well xx
