Hello everyone.

I'm JT203. I have fibromyalgia, joint hypermobility syndrome, borderline and dependent personality disorder and depression, anxiety, IBS, and pompholyx (on my hands). I am a single parent and coming to the end of my first year at university which has been a total uphill hellish struggle but anyway. Sending solidarity to fellow spoonies, and hi to everyone else! Thank you for having me, this looks like a fantastic website on first impressions.

    Hello :) 

    As someone else with a personality disorder, congratulations for simply being able to manage so much. What support are you getting at university, if you don't mind me asking? I hope you're at least getting disabled student allowance.
