Hi I’m jade, 24, uk and I’m wheel chair bound and have been for the past 7years, before that my condition were gradually worsening until now when my power chair is my best friend :) I’m looking to meet people, make new friendships, I’m easy going and don’t take life too seriously because we can’t change how it will turn out

    Hi @jaaidexox - welcome to the community, & thank you for joining, Jade. A good place to start on the forum is our virtual 'Coffee lounge' to meet some of our other members, or have a look at the 'Recent discussions.' I hope you enjoy being part of this friendly & supportive group. :)

    Hello @jaaidexox and welcome to our online community, it's lovely to meet you! 

    It's great that your power chair has given you more independence, I've only heard good things about them  :)  Do you manage to get out and about much?  I know that it's not been easy given the restrictions of the last year but I hope you can go on some jaunts over this summer!

    You sound really upbeat and positive so it's great to have you here.  I can see you've already replied to another thread which is fab.  Please do check out the categories @chiarieds mentioned - our virtual coffee lounge and recent discussions - and if you have any questions, just give us a shout.

    I hope you have a lovely week and looking forward to speaking again soon!
