edited November 2023 in Start here and say hello!
I am 53 years of age. I have Cerebral Palsy Spastic Quadriplegia. I am married to Peter and I live in Swaffham Norfolk. I have 3 dogs who names are:-
☆Billie Spot Teacup Yorkshire Terrier (Emotional Support Animal) 6 years old.

☆ Poppy King Charles Spaniel (Trainee Emotional Support Animal) Born in May 2023.

Willow Shih Tzu Cross with Yorkshire Terrier
(3 years old).

I have DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder) and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am a qualified Integrative Psycotherapist and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am the owner and founder of Free Counselling Norfolk a Counselling service for those needing professional counselling but due to circumstances cannot afford the fees of my fellow colleagues. (This is not an advert I am sharing about myself)

I like reading,  personal development, colouring studying walking my dogs, going out to shows and shopping. I love going to church as well.

    Hi @Encyclopediagirl! welcome to our community :) I'm much more of a cat person but it sounds like you have some lovely and very adorable dogs! I don't suppose we could be lucky enough to get pictures of them?

    Just to let you know, I did remove your full name. Just some online community safety for you, while the community here is lovely you never know who could be reading.

    Hi @Encyclopediagirl - & welcome to the community. I seem to be a cat person too, as my cat 'adopted' me as a kitten. I get to borrow my son's dog too, when he & his wife are both working, so the best of both worlds! He's a little Bedlington terrier :)
