I think that it is important that members are assured of their safety using social media and I for one believe that HU platforms are amongst the friendliest and safest. And to reassure you I gave HU my full contact details to HU so they know who I am and where I live, as members safety is paramount to all of us and we want our members to not only feel protected but know that they are protected the best that we can.
So what are the advantages of social media to those of us with special needs? The ability to communicate with others in similar situations and most importantly on the HU platforms know that all members needs and rights will be respected.
For me being a coeliac who has microscopic colitis I have to be very careful with everything that I eat and drink and have to avoid all alcohol. Unfortunately socialising usually involves eating and drinking to so I feel self conscious and end up explaining why I don't drink alcohol, so socialising on social media is a perfect medium for me as I can admire food that I cannot eat and chat to like minded people. And I don't feel isolated.
So we want you to know that you will get unequivocal support on here regardless of your needs or skill sets.
If any members feel that they have special needs and want extra support then please just say by contacting 'us' your admin moderators by pm as we all have special dietary needs: healthunlocked.com/healthye...
Here's a link with a well written blog by Rebecca Thorne a blind person but the fact that they have felt bullied on social media is unacceptable as we will not tolerate bullying of anyone full stop. And you can have that in writing.
Thank you all for your support and contributions as this is our forum...
