Never heard of hoosiers before, had to use Mr. Wikipedia - an education :-)

Dear bexamy,

I think, since this is the Internet, your answer will be 'anywhere'. However, in my experience, probably Most Members are based in the UK.

Eastbourne, I was there a few months back, a VERY pleasant town.....I found anyway.

Please DO have a lovely Christmas.

Warmest wishes

Lol I just wanted to see where we were all from , and even something as bad as the pain we are going through we can still all come together.

Yes it's quite a nice town , I live just on the outskirts and it's very nice and peaceful by the sea

Thank you hope you have a wonderful Christmas too

Hi bexamy

I am just down the coast from you in Hampshire between Portsmouth and Southampton. And in true British style I will share our weather :-) a dry start with little fog and a good deal warmer than it has been!

When I joined there was a facility in the profile to type in where you are from which is helpful when people need information relative to the country in which they live but contributors rarely seem to use this so I do not know if it is still a function available.

:-)

I would love to move, but being on housing benefit makes it nearly impossible. As in in the private sector, know one day my landlord will want to put it up for sale. Having said that Inhave been here 17 years, as they have kept rent as low as possible considering it London, as in their words, I am such a good tenant.

Dread the day I have to move as will probably be in 60s by then. London councils are putting people up North to be rehired.

Anyway, hope you have a lovely Xmas. x

I'm in a little bIt of a similar situation, i live in a one bedroom massionete with 3 different sets of stairs to the living room bedroom bathroom etc and as I can't actually get up and downstairs without excruciating pain it's a nightmare but as I'm on housing benefit and in a private property it's just impossible for me to move or to find private landlords anymore than will accept a "single mum on benefits" I hate being put into that category even though I'm disabled I don't get much help.

I hope you find a problem to your solution soon and things work out for you x

Hi 👋🏽 there x

I'm in the uk

London

Lewisham to be exact.

Where you from . Lol just retread you post 🙈😂 Corrections your from Eastbourne Doh!!

Pain is my enemy everyday!!😩

Nice to meet you. Bexamy 👋🏽

Been a member a few years but came a way as my kidneys shut down quite suddenly and don't dramatically within three months!! 😳

I was born with kidney disease Renal Tubla Aciocious but my my GFR kidney function dropped out the blue last year right down to 4%!! I Was put on emergency chest line dialysis immediately as an inpatient and kings until they made a proper access fistula in April this year three operations the first one in a my right arm failed so they had to do two operations on my left arm to join the vein and artery together to bring bring the artery to skin level for easier access for dialysis 🙈 It was horrific!!

I've been dialysis now for about 8 months this is in top of my osteomalacia in my spine arms and shoulders. Now on top of that due to the kidney stud down I now suffer with severe bladder pain spasms and toilet urgencies 😳🙈.

Dialysis which she have now at a satellite unit in Sydenham is traumatic due to so much pain and discomfort having to sit for hours without moving much and having bladder weakness every ten minutes 🙄🙈.

So that's my introduction hope it wasn't to long ??!!

Take care would love to hear your story. I'm am willing to listen to your frustrations or concerns xx
