Hi Lily
I have just been reading your post about support ( Can't find it) and how you are struggling to know what support you need.

I don't know whether you use Facebook? But I was going to suggest it might be an option for you to have a sort of social life without actually needed to meet in person.

As you write such brilliant posts on here it might be something to consider. I actually find its my way of keeping in touch with everyone without the hassle of leaving the house.

Thanks Toosh. I can write well although I'm slow and write in Pages first and then copy and paste onto the message board because I have losts so many messages before pressing post! but I struggle to read, I only skim read messages and don't understand everything said especially Prof. Allan, so I think Facebook would be difficult plus I forget after I've posted that I've written something. I think I would like some face to face contact although it's not been successful the past few years I am ever hopeful that there is someone out there who I can like and vice versa. Thanks for thinking of me. I currently waiting for social to get in touch, we shall see. Love Lily :smile:

[SIZE="2"]Hi all

I think I'm in the right category here.

I’m surprised that we haven’t been made aware of this new HDYO venture: [URL="http://en.hdyo.org/land"][COLOR="Blue"][U]http://en.hdyo.org/land[/U][/COLOR][/URL]

I came across it on Steven Beatty’s excellent website: [URL="www.insidehd.com"][COLOR="blue"][U]www.insidehd.com[/U][/COLOR][/URL]

I’ve kept this message short having just seen that Lily’s been “telling me off”.

Now, do I have to say to Lily that I've just written that in good humour. If it was my son he would think that I was "having a go at him" - it's how HD works sometimes.

S used to be an avid reader but no longer. He finds it very difficult to scan text on a page or screen from left to right, down, left to right, down, etc. He loses track, forgets - and has to start all over again.[/SIZE]

Hi Lily
I understand where you are coming from my hubby struggles to read now. He was such an avid reader (mostly books on wars)

The good thing with facebook is it can be quite humourous too. You can share photos and view other peoples photos like our lovely Jaq's pictures of her gorgeous garden and flowers so it doesn't need to be all reading and txt.

You can also look at your history to check what you have previously posted. There are lots of posts about current issues / research on HD too.

You could always give it a go and if it doesn't work for you, you can just leave,
Mind you if you are anything like me with technology you will need the help of your kids to set you up. I had to get my niece to help me initially. It would be good to connect with you but I totally understand if you are not interested xxx

No worries Allan you made me smile! Then I saw your next sentence and you made me smile again, realising your comment had the potential to do either and I totally get what your son is saying but no, this time it made me smile. Thanks.
