    Hi @HayzB4 :) 

    Thanks for making a post about this, as I'm sure it's not too easy to speak about. I'm really sorry to hear that you've been left without any support, despite all that you've been through. That sounds really tough. 

    This isn't something I've personally been through, so I can't offer any support in that sense. I hope that another member who's been through something similar will see your post and reach out to you. 

    If you could create a 'wish list', what kind of support would you like to receive? For example, would you like more help to manage your pain, or more support at home?

    Morning @HayzB4 welcome to this great group.
    I'm sorry i do not have any answers for you, i just didn't want you to think we hadn't noticed you.
    I think Tori's idea of making a wish list is great and if you are willing to post it on here i am sure it would create a lot of response and may answers for you. Good luck and i look forward to seeing you around.
