Hi, my name is TheoBreakspear!

Hello, I’m Theo, I’m 23 and I studied physics, but I’m taking some time out after falling ill with ME/CFS and I’m training as a massage therapist so I can work part time. I love science, music and nature.

    Hi @TheoBreakspear and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you and thank you for the interesting introduction.  How are you today?  Did you enjoy your physics course?  It sounds fascinating!  Good luck with your training to become a massage therapist.  It sounds fab!  You sound as though you have many interests.  

    Lots of us on here have varied interests also so you are sure to find other members with similar interests too.  I know music is always a popular one on here and you will find some threads on that on the Coffee Lounge, if you want to take a look.  Please have a look around the site at your leisure and join in any discussions that you fancy.  You will find us to be a friendly bunch of people.  I hope you enjoy your time with us and I look forward to seeing you on here.  If there is anything we can help/support you with then please just let us know.  All the best.  :smile:

    Hi @TheoBreakspear - Welcome to the community from me too! I'm sorry to read you have ME, as unfortunately so do other people here. I hope you may 'meet' some of them. This is indeed a lovely place to be, with very friendly people, & I see you've already heard from 2 of them!
    Here's a link to the 'Coffee Lounge' that was mentioned: https://community.scope.org.uk/categories/coffee-lounge There's a post there too about pets, if you have any, where we share photos of them, as well as music & hobbies, & so much more!
    I also share a love of nature with my son: he is particularly interested in big cats!
    I hope to see you around, & I hope your training is going well too. I know a fair bit about massage, having been a physiotherapist.
