What is your new years resolution for 2021?

Mine is to get my first job and raise awareness about living with an undiagnosed condition

    That's a great resolution @RacheleLeahSilvera, any idea what sort of job you would like?

    Get a job (impossible, equal opportunities my foot) and pass at least 1 grading at Taekwondo. Not much chance of either when the whole flaming outside world thinks I'm a workshy waste of skin who should've been discombulated at birth!

    Sorry, as you can probably tell I'm in the mood from hell at the moment.

    My NYR will be the same as every year...not to make one. B)
    @MrAllen1976 are you ok?
    Be extra nice to new members.

    I hope to start 2021 with a better understanding of my condition and instead of accepting what I’m being told by my doctors that I need to find a balance with my pain control. Get off the Opiods which to be honest I believe I have become immune to. My nerve pain isn’t going away. I know I’m getting worse but after all the **** we have all faced this past year I’m not gonna focus on the can’t do to realise what I can do . Abilities instead of disabilities. With the grace of god we will definitely see a brighter light in the tunnel for all of us. It’s just wonderful thing that we have a place we’re we can go to talk with like minded people. I myself have been very silent on here . But I do check in every day. I haven’t written anything because of my being in a dark place for a long time. God bless and watch over every single one of you. And thanks for being here. For me..????

    It's fine @Paddyrooney62, no need to apologise, we all have the occasional slip of the tongue :) 

    Definitely sounds like you will be taking more control over things in 2021 and trying to have a more positive outlook on things, I like it :) 

    You should post here more often, that was a great contribution.

    Like woodbine I don’t make New Years resolutions.

    I tend to start the year with resolutions that quickly get abandoned or forgotten.  It would be great if 2021 could the be the year I learnt to swim mind so I'm going to make an extra special effort to organise lessons.

    My resolution is to start to get walking again with my prosthetic leg even if it is just around the house , I havent had much luck so far as my balance is affected with my eyesight issues and I need to build up the strength in my knee to be able to support using the leg

    @janer1967 That's a good goal to set yourself.  Take it steady and literally small steps at a time will get you there :)

    I don't make resolutions. My "goal" is to get my motorhome next week - to get myself settled in and to wait out winter at a friends farm (for a modest fee) and then I am hoping to get a well paid job in Milton Keynes which if I do- means I will re locate down there. There are places to park nearby and i will be OK.
