Hi I'm new

Ocdbunny22 Community member Posts: 2 Listener
My name's Emma, 
I live for my two cats, I've been disabled ( leg) for nearly two years,  I've just had an op on it, trying to stay positive but it's so difficult.  My daughters have left home, but I have carers, more for mental health issues than anything else.  
So that's me, hello to everybody and hope you're all OK today

    Hi @Ocdbunny22 _ welcome to the community, & thank you for introducing yourself. It's good you're trying to stay positive as that's the best thing we can do. I have a very mischievous cat, tho she can also be adorable. I'm OK today, thank you, as it's been decent weather & I've been doing a bit in the garden. Do you have any other interests or hobbies?  Hope you make a good recovery from your surgery.

    Hiya, I'm a trained horticulturist, and before I wrecked my leg I grew tomato, cucumber,  chilli, peppers, I still have the chilli's hanging in my kitchen,  I dried and threaded them, way too hot for cooking, hopefully next summer I'll be able to grow again, I had my cast off Thursday,  and it's infected, but the antibiotics are working,  even though they re cast it, it feels better already, wow, you can tell I don't get a chance to talk to anyone, you have a cat, what is she like, colour character etc, mine are bonkers x
