Hi, my name is Ozziekaila!

I’m an 18 year old Non-Binary person from the UK. I suffer with a lot of mental health issues such as CPTSD, Anxiety, Depression, EUPD and DID. 
I also have undiagnosed problems with the joints in my legs. They originally thought it was Marfan’s Syndrome but wouldn’t diagnose it.
I’d love to make new friends and hopefully raise awareness and educate people.

    Hi @Ozziekaila - Welcome to the community. My family has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which is also a hereditary connective tissue disorder like Marfan Syndrome. The geneticist said he couldn't rule out Marfan's in our son. It seems there can be some overlap with these connective tissue disorders!
    Please have a look around & join in any discussions.
    I'll ask my friend @thespiceman to come & advise, as he has a wealth of information on mental health issues that should be helpful. The link given above is one of his posts.
