    Hi to Adrian who emailed me at 2.56am to welcome me, thanks @Adrian_Scope, thanks for the welcome. @Libby_Scope @Teddybear12 @janer1967 @Tori_Scope thanks for your welcome messages today. I’m sorry I haven’t been able to get on here sooner today, all’s  ok it’s just my sleeping pattern, I don’t have one! So I have a sleep disorder, which does help when I’m trying to plan things.
    So now I’ll  introduce myself, I’m Steve, I have my better half Carol who’s put up with me for 28 years! We have 4 daughters and we live in Shropshire.
    I’ll continue with another message shortly.

    I suffer from anxiety, depression and stress, some days are good and some days are not so good. I have asthma (work related) which is manageable while I’m taking my meds, although we all caught Covid towards the end of October, this obviously made my asthma worse and so now I have Long Covid, hopefully only for the next few weeks.
    Just over a year ago I was referred to the ADHD Clinic, and shortly after I was diagnosed with Adult ADHD, which you may know means that I’ve had ADHD since early childhood. This diagnosis was a real game changer in that it answered so many questions as to how ADHD has shaped and controlled my life, and many more new questions as to how will I deal with it?
    I also have OCD, which is also very controlling, I have to do things a certain way, do things several times over, over many years I’ve learned to control certain aspects of OCD, but it still has a high level of control over what I do.
    Anyway I do hope I haven’t sent you all to sleep lol, my next message is about our recent move to change over to Universal Credit.

    Hi @Ste777 and welcome to the community, thank you for reaching out! Just as a heads up I've removed your surname and specific location, as part of our community house rules we encourage members to avoid sharing too much personal information, to help keep everyone safe :)

    I'm going to split your post about universal credit and move it into our Universal Credit category so members can find it more easily, share their own experiences, and offer advice. 

    In the meantime you are more than welcome to browse our categories for any other topics of interest. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
