    Hello @Doug1960 and welcome to the community :) 

    Sorry to hear about the struggles you've had with HSP, you have joined a very supportive and helpful community so I'm certain our members will offer their advice and support for you.

    How are you managing after retiring from your job? Are you planning on looking for work?

    Hi @Doug1960 - welcome to this friendly & supportive community. Have you had any physio, which might be helpful? I don't know if you know, but there's also a support group which you might find useful. Please see: https://hspgroup.org/
    Have you taken up any hobbies or interests since you retired? If so, you might enjoy looking in our virtual 'Coffee lounge,' where we have some discussions about these, & all sorts of things not disability - orientated, & even some word games.
    If you have any enquiries about benefits, or any other questions, please say, as there's often members that can advise. Anyway, thank you for joining, & please do look around the forum & join in with the discussions. We have a section on 'Neurological conditions,' which may be of interest, where you will see we have other members with HSP, tho I don't know if they are active at the moment on the forum. Please see: https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/neurological-conditions  :)
