i am very new to this and have just joined this group so I hope I’m doing this right (apologies if I’m not)
I am looking for some help not for me but my mum, mum has been diagnosed with MS for 3 years and is still coming to terms with her condition, just recently she has started to isolate herself a lot, she struggles to move about as she is very restricted in movement in one of her legs, therefore unfortunatly she has had to stop working, this leaves her with a lot of time on her hands, my mum has tried various support groups and is also a registered member on this site but what she lacks and really wants is some friends that can relate to her condition, she does chat to people on here but really wants to meet people in person maybe meet for coffee or go shopping together ( mum is still mobile and can drive) and just have a laugh with! Watching mum over the last few years is heart breaking as I can’t take away the daily struggles she faces and the new life she is having to adapt to! She is very sad and lonely and struggling, I thought that maybe I could find some people in the same situation that live local to my mum (essex) and are around the same age looking for a friend then maybe you could get in touch and I could pass it on to my mum!
I want to help her to smile and laugh again!!
