Hi, thanks for the support. :) The OU are great and I think they have kind of an untapped niche when it comes to disabled people. I looked at many a brick university and they all said roughly the same thing; any help you want with the education side of things, no expense spared, help with personal care apply through the local ss. I don't think anyone needs a degree to know what the answer was.
There you go, my first of, hopefully few moans.

I am looking for a second hand molift smart portable hoist. Does anyone have or know of someone who has one that they are willing to sell? I have checked ebay, disability gear and preloved. Annoyingly adverts did come up but they were old ones. I am not looking to get it for dirt cheap just cheaper than the £1995 access at last price tag!
I would be grateful if you could ask around and let me know.

Hi all, I'm a newbie, used to visit the ouch website but it was normally just to read the articles and have a giggle when I was feeling down.
I am 25 and have Cerebral Palsy, affects everything apart from my communication skills, something my parents bemoan from time to time I'm sure! To continue the debate that seems to be going on, my family has a dog, although I like cats too. I say family because kinda, sorta live in my place. It's a long, complicated story. I am currently studying for a health and social care degree with the Open University and have just started my second year. I want to become an advocate and help people with disabilities to navigate the systems, forms and anything else the government thinks of that is written in gobbledigook.
Well that's about it for now but I would like to know if people ever tell their life stories on here? I am going through some stuff and could do with a sounding board and advice but I don't want to be the moany one or burden anyone with my problems.
