    Welcome @sam_tex20! I can imagine your puppy is a lot, are they keeping you company during lockdown?

    What are you studying at college? I hope it's going okay. :)

    Hi @sam_tex20 - Welcome to the community, Sam, & thank you for joining with your friend Dan. It sounds like you just might be an animal lover, as many of us are. I have one cat & she's enough for me to cope with! Anyway it's nice to 'meet' you too, & I'm sure I'll see you around the forum. :)

    Woa! Are there any animals you want but don't have at the moment @sam_tex20? I've always wanted a tortoise, but the house is such a mess at the moment I think we'd lose him.  :s

    Hi Sam,
    My name is Niamh and I am also from England and live with some of the conditions you have mentioned :)
    Your dog looks very cute! I imagine that training Texas-Toast might be challenging due to the unpredictable nature of FND symptoms and how quickly they can change, but I’m sure you’ll do a great job!
    I have FND, and a quick tip to shorten your list; NEAD comes under the umbrella of FND! I used to have NEAs as well.
    :)
