    Hi @JoLynn - & welcome to this friendly & supportive online community. Ever so pleased you read about this & decided to join. So many of our members have said they have felt isolated either due to the pandemic, or the pandemic increasing the sense of isolation some of our members already felt.
    I don't know if this is the item you saw, but Scope have put together some resources that may be helpful, in part relating to isolation. Please see: https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/75929/coping-with-stress-low-mood-and-isolation-a-support-thread
    We have many members with MS, & we all share an understanding about disability, so I'm sure you'll enjoy being a member. I look forward to seeing you about the forum; please do just join in with any discussions of interest, or have a look at our virtual 'Coffee lounge' for some varied informal chats. :)

    A slightly belated welcome to the community from me too @JoLynn :) How are you getting on? Have you had a chance to look around the community yet? I can see that you commented on one of the games in the coffee lounge, which is great. 

    Please just give us a shout if you need anything!
