  • I have right-side spasticity:  my right arm is permanently bent onto my chest, my right hand contorted into a claw;  my right leg is bendable but sufficiantly inflexible to allow me to get around the house with a 4-wheeled walker,

    Tthese disabilities are neurological in origin [not MS, not stroke].  They started in 2006. and by 2009 I xould not right or walk unaided.  They gave up investigating me in 2006, being unable to provide a diagnosis.

    HI Chloe
    im just checking if it is ok for me to post the names of some apps that i found on the website of the local' talking therapies service. they are based on CBT and help to manage our emotions when needed. 'CATCH IT' to deal with intrusive negative thoughts.
    'MOODSPACE' For meditation, sleeplessness and anxiety.

    have you heard of them? just by reading through the apps and recording my thoughts and feelings i felt a bit calmer

    Re: project typing
    Hi Denise, thanks again for reaching out! I tried your email there but it bounced back. It would be great to arrange a chat at some point to tell you more about the project and hear your thoughts. What would be the best way to get in touch?

    Best wishes, 

    Fin

    Mentioning someone in a discussion (do so by putting an @ before the user name) is a great way to encourage dialog and let them know who you’re talking to.

    Hello Nicola,I also joined the group tonight .I am sorry that you are alone ,being isolated and lonely, possibly afraid too, is quite understandable.
    I am fortunate in having family nearby and my husband .
    Maybe  you could contact a church in your area to find someone to get shopping for you ,they may also have someone who could contact you to chat on  the phone .
