    Hello @Joewalsh

    Good to meet you, welcome to the community.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are struggling at the minute, I imagine it feels quite lonely when you don't feel as though you have others to talk with about it. 

    This is a very supportive and welcoming community so if you do ever want to talk about your experiences I'm sure our members will be happy to read what you have to say.

    Hi @joewalsh - & welcome to this friendly & supportive community. :) We have had a couple of members with HSP, as I remember chatting to one of them, but I don't think they're active at the moment. If you haven't come across this website, you might find it of interest. Please see: https://hspgroup.org/      Perhaps you might also like to try Scope's virtual 'Coffee lounge' to meet other members & play some word games.
