SociableSeanTB - Good afternoon everyone!

SociableSeanTB Member Posts: 12 Connected
Good afternoon Scope community :)

My name is Sean and I have just emerged from the cocoon of hidden illness and fear over my disability and mental health. This online community seems as good a place as any to get to know more about help and support in living with disabilities (and the potential to get to know people, make friends and have a good old natter is a bonus).

After over ten years of tests, assessments and numerous conflicting diagnoses, I have been diagnosed with Dissociative Identity Disorder and Dissociative Seizures, as well as PTSD. Aside from writing a fledgling blog on my experiences so far, I enjoy speaking and learning languages, watching sports and meeting new people. I live in Reading with my wife; we have been here for just under a year (although I am originally from Milton Keynes).

I look forward to chatting to you all in he weeks and months to come.
