I'm not sure what I hope for or expect from this group but I feel so isolated and alone I want to connect with others in a similar situation.

    Hi @Babushka68 - You are most welcome to join us all, as this is both a friendly & supportive community. Many people feel isolated at the best of times, & many more now. We all care & support each other anyway, & now more than ever. So, very pleased you have joined this group, & do join in with the discussions as Han_ suggests, or pop into our virtual 'Coffee lounge' where we chat about just about anything. See: https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/coffee-lounge

    Hello @Babushka68 and a warm welcome to the community. I'm sorry to read that you feel isolated. Lots of us here on the community have shared those feelings, so you're not alone. Do you want to tell us a little about yourself? Or pop into the coffee lounge and get involved with some of the discussions there? It can be a good place to figure out the community and get to know some of the other members.

    Hi @Babushka68 and welcome also to the Community.  It is nice to meet you.  I'm sorry to hear you are feeling isolated and alone.  It is a really difficult time at the moment so completely understandable to feel that way.  You are not alone, but are amongst friends on here.  We all pull together and support each other and you will find lots of friendship and kindness on here.  We are a friendly bunch of people too so as others have said, please feel free to have a look around the site and join in any discussions you are interested in and as people have been saying, the Coffee Lounge is a really good place to start.  I look forward to seeing you on here anyway and anytime you feel like a chat please do so as there will always be someone on here.  If there is anything at all you need help or support with then you only just have to ask.  All the best.  :smile:
