Hi All,
I have just registered to these forums. I hope we can help each other get through day to day. It’s a hard slog being disabled as I’m sure you are all aware. Stay strong and keep smiling x

    Good morning @Silent_Exile  


    Wishing you a warm welcome to the community, thank you for your lovely opening post. It can certainly be a challenge being a disabled person but it's important to support one another :) 

    This is a very supportive and welcoming site to be a part of so I’m sure you’ll find it to be a positive outlet, feel free to have a look around and get involved wherever you’d like 😊 A few notable pages I’d recommend visiting would be:

    • The virtual coffee lounge which is one of our categories, in which we play games and talk about general subjects such as hobbies and interests
    • The recent discussions page, which shows an overview of everything happening across the community
    • The categories page, which shows a full list of discussion groups on the community

    If you have any questions at all then don’t hesitate to ask.

    Hi @Silent_Exile. Welcome to Scope’s forum. It is great to see you have joined us. How are you today?

    You are really kind to want to help others to get through day to day. Please remember we are here for you too though if you need anything.

    I hear that you are finding it a hard slog being disabled. What does a “hard slog” currently look like for you? We are here for you if you would like to share more with us.

    Also, is there anything which usually helps you the most to get through a “hard slog”? I know this varies from person to person and I would be interested to hear more about what helps you.

    Take care for now and I will look forward to hopefully hearing more from you again soon  :)
