I'm here to find community :) I'm 18 and am currently staying in a hospital in Hertfordshire/North London long term (so if anyone is around that area I'd love to speak to you, but I'd like to make friends from anywhere!). I have multiple physical and mental health disabilities and am neurodivergent. I have many hobbies and love nature (especially mushrooms/mycology). Talk to me about anything!

    That's okay, I have been in hospital since 2020. Glad I found this community, I think I went to one of the Scope shops a while back but didn't know much about it. Thanks for the welcome!
