Hi, I'm new here, and my name is Andy :)
Hi, I'm Andy. I'm a queer transgender man, and I suffer with various severe mental health issues. Alongside this, I'm type 1 diabetic, have moderate hearing loss and am possibly neurodivergent (with the latter two currently being investigated). Sometimes it feels very overwhelming to have all of these issues mounting up, but I'm also very grateful for my awesome support network, and am hopeful for the future. I'm hoping to meet some cool new folk here, and chat to people with a bunch of different experiences, as this is something I really enjoy. I also thought joining this community might help me come to terms with my own disabilities, as even now, living as I do, I almost feel like an 'imposter' attaching that label to myself.
That’s enough of a ramble for now, but I can't wait to get talking to you guys. I think it’s awesome that communities like this one exist, especially with things as they are right now. Solidarity and support might be more important than ever!
