Hi, I’m a disabled, queer 27 year old guy from Scotland. My main diagnoses are SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus, or just “lupus”), hEDS (Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, hypermobility type), and MDD (major depressive disorder)/borderline bipolar II. (My psychiatrist says I’m borderline for bipolar type II, but I’m not sure if I actually have the explicit diagnosis. His main issue with the diagnosis was that my hypomanic episodes are not long enough.) As the lupus and EDS in particular are systemic, they bring a whole host of secondary diagnoses with them! I use a motorised wheelchair.
I plan for the blog to be mainly about my health, but also to include miscellaneous posts including those for my hobbies (e.g. crochet). I used to have separate blogs for both studying language and crochet, but it was too much to cope with three! I also want to use the blog as more of a journal as I have in the past, i.e. not every post has to be a succinct* set of points with an overall take-away message. (* Relatively succinct. I’m not known anywhere for being short and to the point, lol.)
