I'm a freelance writer with personal experience of disability. I'm writing an article for a magazine about loneliness with the emphasis being to include ideas for overcoming loneliness. In this context loneliness is about not about feeling alone per se but not feeling connected.

I wondered if there was anyone using these message boards who has found them useful in terms of overcoming loneliness and feeling more connected?

I'd just need to ask you 3 simple questions via e mail so I can put together a couple of quotes.

If you could get in touch it would be great to hear from you: emma_bowler@yahoo.com

My deadline looms so if you could get in touch as soon as you can that would be great!

Many thanks.
