    Good evening Tarot
    Welcome to the online community.  I am absolutely sure that you will find support on here.  I am relatively new here also and found the community to be open and supportive.  I look forward to 'see you around'!

    Welcome to the community @tarot! It's great to have you with us :) How are you doing today?

    If you're looking to have a casual chat with other members, I'd definitely encourage you to visit our virtual coffee lounge and join in with one of the fun discussions or games. You might also be interested in checking out our category for discussions relating to less visible conditions to find people who have had similar experienced to you. 

    Please don't hesitate to give us a shout if you need anything at all!

    Hi @tarot

    Welcome to Scope's forum. It is great to see you have joined us. I am sure you will be able to talk to many of us with invisible conditions and disabilities. In fact, @Tori_Scope has already signposted you to the same resource I was going to share with you! It is a discussion board called 'invisible impairments'. You will find many people with invisible conditions and disabilities there. I certainly think we are a friendly and supportive community and I hope you find the same  :D
    I have expertise in the following subjects, gained through professional settings such as high level education or employment: autism spectrum disorder, dyslexia, down's syndrome, social, emotional and mental health difficulties, assistive technology and education. Pronouns: She/her.
