    Hi @Dan1975 and a warm welcome from me! How's your Wednesday going so far?

    If there's anything in-particular we can help you with, just give us a shout.  Otherwise feel free to make yourself at home, by browsing our different chat categories, recent discussions or having a virtual brew in our coffee lounge :)

    Also, if you want to tell us a little more about yourself then that would be lovely (no pressure!)

    Take care and hope to speak again soon.

    Hello Cher thank you for adding no pressure. 
    My name is Daniel I live in West Yorkshire but I was born and raised in Kent.
    I worked for the NHS for 20+ years. 
    I am now profoundly deaf. After my hearing deteriorated since the age of two and I suffer with severe anxiety disorder. 
    I am a very keen amateur photographer and hoping to make a new career out of it.

    Hello @Dan1975

    Welcome to the community, good to see you join us and thanks for telling us a bit about yourself.

    I live in West Yorkshire myself, isn't it a lovely part of the world? So much beautiful countryside on our doorsteps.

    Photography sounds fantastic, what sort of pictures do you like to take? I wish you the very best in making a career out of it, I imagine that would be very fulfilling for you. 

    Can I ask, do you receive support to manage your anxiety ? Is your GP aware of it?
