    maybe I have this wrong but I thought amongst other things this is what you can help with, is there somewhere local I can go where I wont feel out of place  either or keeping fit and socialising  I cant swim cos I cant walk into the water I cant stand up I would feel out of place anyway I would feel out of place at the gym do you know what other disabled people do how can I get a bit fitter  how can I meet people like myself thankyou
