Hi I have Cerebral Palsy I'm on looking For pen pals from all over the world with similar interest and know what I'm going through as a disabled person I love music of all kids and love to be outside and will read anything

I'm a 51 year old woman. I live in Whittier California USA. I have a disability called cerebral palsy. I use a wheelchair to jam around this big wonderful world!! I'm living on my own with 24/7 support I love life and do my best to enjoy It! I'm looking for new friends to chat with..and maybe we can share a cup of coffee one day! I have an amazing story to share with you of how it was for me and how it is today...if your a man or a woman with a disability let's talk..let's be friends!!

I am 45 and had a stroke almost a year ago which has left me with some difficulty walking and a wonky arm. My friends seem to have done a vanishing act in last year so I would like to make new friends to talk to and have a laugh with as it can get lonely. I have a good sense of humour which helps a lot when I end upon my backside trying to go a different direction than my leg was, we dont always go same direction at the same time! If you would like to have a chat please feel free to contact me,

I'm 43 and I've had moderate to severe M.E. for 5 years and am mostly housebound. It would be nice to have more contact with the outside world via letters. I live with my boyfriend and Buddy the Chihuahua. I enjoy reading, art, writing, photography and crafts.
