    Hello @dem63 and a warm welcome to our online community.

    Wow, I am very envious of you having been raised in Greece! How are you finding life in Manchester? I can imagine it's a little different (and colder  :D).

    I'm sorry to hear you had a stroke that's left you with some problems, are you receiving any support with that and your diabetes?

    I can see you've already made some posts on the community which is fab.  Please let us know if ever we can be of help.  Take care and I hope to speak again soon.

    many many thanks for the welcome Cher !!
    when I first came it was WINDchester , then it was RAINchester , after I got the message for no carrying umbrella with me at all , it was just Manchester :) 
    Stroke happened from uncontrolled diabetes , this incident took place at Greece , I came here and worked all these years with one hand , the right one , left is with spasticity , but because of this some time now I started to have pain with the "good" hand , so I started the PIP procedure .
    I found you accidenally , but you have lot of info and support , so I am happy to be here !!
