Hi to everyone just signed up. It's the first time joining a community..Hoping to make some new friends and hopefully reachout and try to support others. Having a disability can be lonely and everyday we face new challenges but knowing we aren't alone makes the world of difference. Thank you for reading.

    Hi Pugie, I'm new too! I joined for the same reasons as you said in your introduction bit. I can be a lonely journey but hopefully we will both find what we are looking for.
