  1. So... Something that has been a persistent thorn in my side since my diagnosis... To what degree should one accept their limitations because of their condition, and to what degree should it be challenged? I understand, absolutely, that the answer is mostly subjective to oneself, but I’d be keen to hear other people’s personal experience of such scenarios. Is it OK to say, “No, I know I can’t do that; I know it stresses me out too much “...? Or is that being defeatist? I often feel guilty trying to impress that upon someone/myself - like I should be trying harder. My own example would be something like speaking on the phone, arranging an appointment or booking the car’s MOT. I feel so awkward, so ill-prepared for their questions and unable to process quickly enough that I plead with others to do it for me. But then feel worse for it. I should be able to do it... And maybe it’s not that big a deal... Maybe I just need to “get over it”... I dunno. Any input from you lovely folk?
  2. I have no intention to take frustrations out on *people*...! Unless they like pineapple on pizza and think Daniel Craig is the best 007. And no, no, no. Liverpool isn’t “North “....! It’s basically Midlands at best! XD

    Um... Hi!

    Just a tentative and speculative "hello" from a Northern boy and his baggage - currently three suitcases, a holdall and a hat box (and they're all packed with questions, confusion and frustration. Consider this me moving in. I'll start unpacking in due course). I dislike talking about myself, generally, though, so will not recount "my story" here (I'll maintain an air of intrigue for a while, maybe). Suffice to say, it is a pleasure to find this site and to make your virtual acquaintance. I look forward to getting to know some of you in the process of getting to know myself. D x
