    Hello @younggirl21jc1 :) Thank you for reaching out. I am afraid it is common for people with disabilities to feel misunderstood. I acknowledged how difficult it must be for you right now. Do you ask for help? Do you accept offers of help?         

    Community Volunteer Host with a passion for human rights.


    Please note: if I use the online community outside of its hours of administration, I am doing so in a personal capacity only.

    Hi @younggirl21jc and welcome to the community :)

    You've reached out for help by posting here, and introduced yourself. I'm sure a lot of our members can relate to a feeling of not being heard or understood, but please know we are all here to support you.

    Is there a part of the forum you'd like to visit, or do you have a question to ask? 

    What can we do to help?

    Hi @younggirl21jc

    Welcome from me too. The majority of people on this website do feel misunderstood, myself included. The good thing about Scope is that you will not be judged for commenting on forum posts. I hope to see you commenting on posts soon  :)

    I'm glad it's helping @younggirl21jc :)

    Have a browse or join in whenever you feel ready to, and as @bg844 says, you won't be judged here.

    How are you finding the weekend so far?
