I have Multiple Sclerosis and have found that all the help that is suppost  to be there for disabled people is not. I have found this because I have had to do alot of research for my Clinical Negligence claim. I do know what I am talking about regarding the law as I have legal qualifications and was looking for a training contract before I became ill with Multiple Sclerosis.
When I wasn't disabled I took life for granted now I have changed.

    Hi and welcome glad you have joined 

    Have a look around and feel free to join in or ask any questions 

    I agree think we all take things for granted then boom it all changes and we have to come to terms with how our life has changed by becoming disabled

    Welcome to the community @MissA83

    Disabled people certainly aren't given anywhere near as much support by the authorities as they should, and in some cases as they desparately need.

    I hope all goes well with the claim.

    Thank you Tori_Scope for being so welcoming. I will go back to the MS Society's online community instead as you are discriminating against certain types of disabled people!

    You are so rude!

    Hi @MissA83 - I'm sorry to read you think there's discrimination against certain types of disabled people, & that we are rude. May I ask what has caused you to feel this way, as it's certainly not something that is tolerated here? I would appreciate you letting us know, so that it can be looked into. Thank you.

    I admire your patience and understanding @chiarieds
    I can only see the irony in the post of the op.

  • lisathomas50

    @chiarieds the op has read what tori scope  saud wrong I think depends how you read it I can see the point of the op in one sense 

    Tori scope welcomes the op then guides her to another site where tori scope says to talk to others with ms 

    So the op has taken the view that people with ms aren't welcome  but as I said depends how you read it 

    Tori scope was trying to be heloful

    Hello @MissA83

    Hope you're well this Saturday morning. 

    Firstly I wanted to apologise if you interpreted Tori's comment as trying to drive you away from this community, I can assure you that wasn't how it was intended. We absolutely don't tolerate discrimination of any kind here and I'm sorry that you feel as though that's what's happened to you. 

    In this situation Tori was just trying to provide you with a resource that will give you an option to meet other people who have the same condition as you. That doesn't in any way mean that we don't want you on this community, or that you aren't welcome, it is just a possible avenue in case meeting more people with similar experiences to you is something you want to do. 

    Of course, you will still meet numerous people on this community who can empathise with you, and you with them, given that disabled people so frequently have experiences, thoughts and feelings that can overlap. This is a supportive and helpful place to be, and I hope you continue to get involved here :) 

    Secondly, about the posts on this thread from Richard. I apologise if you feel as though these have distracted from the topic of your discussion in any way. Being a rather large community, with an occasionally confusing platform, we do sometimes find that posts can be made in the wrong place, most of the time it is completely accidental and isn't intended to de-rail the discussion. As Tori mentioned, we have been in touch with Richard to try and clarify the situation, so hopefully this won't happen again.
