hi there, I’m Dave. I been a member here for a while now(although I’ve never spoke) I wonder if this group has a meeting at all, I’ve been suffering with my mobility and depression for few years now n things just get worse and worse, I play Double Bass n music is the one thing that really helps but not sure how much longer I can cope. ☹️

    Scope do not arrange face to face meetings, if that's what you're wondering. You can browse around the forum and join in on any discusions if anything interests you.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Welcome to the community @dave50 :) It's great to have you with us! 

    As poppy123456 has said, we don't currently organise any face to face meetings, but you're very welcome to chat here and form new connections with likeminded people.

    As you're into music, have you had a look to see whether there are any music groups in your local area that you could join? 

    What kind of music do you like to play? 

    Are you receiving any support for your depression at the moment? 
    not sure how much longer I can cope.
    Would you feel comfortable telling us a little more about what you mean by this? 

    Sorry for all of the questions!
