    Hello and welcome @peaceofmind thanks for joining today, would you like to tell us a bit more about yourself?

    thank you for the welcome. 
    I joined scope 6 months ago now and have received and still do receive amazing support. For some reason I have missed this bit. 

    I live with chronic hidden disability and life long mental health issues which as I’ve got older have taken even more of a blow to my life. Had I known about scope supporting people like me I would have come on board a long time ago. Learning a lot and although struggling daily I am having the courage to keep going. So thank you I will look forward to checking the rest of the website out in due course.

    Ahh @peaceofmind as the saying goes "we're in it together" we are all the same with our own demons be it mental health or pain management, the forum is here for us to share our moments or for added friendship and i can also get distraction with the games etc. Glad to have you aboard.
