Hi everyone!

My name’s Adrian and I’m excited to have just joined the community team here at Scope.

I’m based in Essex and am a father to three fantastic kids. The eldest has just started secondary school, while the youngest is seven months and spends his days learning to crawl and posting things in the DVD player. I have a passion for sports and creative writing and when I’m not losing to my family at Monopoly, I’m always looking for the next great box set or book series. 

I’m still learning my way around, but I can’t wait to get involved across the community and start getting to know you all.

    @Adrian_Scope welcome to the Community Team and Scope.  Looking forward to seeing more of you on our community.  I have banned Monopoly in my house it causes too much stress :wink:.

    I love the fact that your 7 month old is posting in your DVD player that is what my son used to do, but to be fair they do look like a post box :smiley:

    Best wishes

    Good Afternoon Steve51
    Thank you for your kind reply, did you get the answers from your neurology Consultant? 
    At the moment they are ruling out things with me.

    Hi @Clarissa1

    No probs it’s my Pleasure 😇 😇

    I have been battling my little “demon since” 1998.

    One minute it’s gone & the next minute it’s back!!!!!

    I have had a good number of brain operation’s to date which has caused there own problems.

    The only consultant that I see now is the “Urology Consultant”

    As I have had problems with my stomach due to nerve damage.

  • Clarissa1Clarissa1 Posts: 23Member Listener
    My spinal Consultant said looks like Upper motor neuron and neurology Consultant is ruling out what it isn't if that makes sense. She told me about a rare condition that is (mnosd )which covers quite a few different areas I've done several MRI'S & cat scan, blood tests & lumbar puncture so far not all tests are in yet. 

    But that must be awful having for so long hopefully you will have light at the end of the tunnel. 
    2018 mine started all of a sudden lower back, then left leg, left arm, occasionally right leg..

    Hi @Clarissa1

    Yes mine has been more downs than ups.

    One day I was told I was 100% cured & the next day it returned.

    Please please don’t worry everything is under control.

    Can you please let me know how things go????

    @steve51 ;


  • Clarissa1Clarissa1 Posts: 23Member Listener
    I will Steve51, as soon as I hear .. they really don't rush ..

    Take care

    Hi @Adrian_Scope

    After being here a few months now, and having had time to get to know your Scope team colleagues, who does what, where, and learn more about
     all of the community members (not just these champions) how are you enjoying your new role with Scope?
    Is it what you'd thought/quietly hoped it would be?

    It was nice to see your team colleagues (username_Scope)
    posting on here to welcome you to the team.

    Enjoy every moment of it :)

    Hi @kohai and thanks for your message! 
    The role has been brilliant. It's very different to anything I've done before, but has been a fantastic experience and I'm very much enjoying it and grateful to be part of such a great team.

    I hope you're doing okay? :smile:

    Shwmae (Hi) @Adrian_Scope

    Diolch, da iawn :) A tithau?
    Thank you I'm doing good  :) And yourself?

    It's good to hear someone so enthused about their work :) I was lucky enough to have three amazing careers (the latter two ended up blending into one), where I've had amazing colleagues, loved going into work each day, I've met and helped thousands of people from all walks around the globe, been taught numerous languages by those I've helped, and its left me with many incredible memories. Hopefully working with Scope, you'll experience much the same in your career here :)

    Enjoy every moment of it :)

    I meant to ask in my previous post, do you all work from home? or are you all located in the same office?
