About me

Hi, I’m Dally!

I’m a 28 year old disabled dude, with multiple mental & physical health issues…so bear with me here 😉

I’m autistic, which means I often find the world difficult in ways that neurotypicals don’t. I have several mental health diagnosis’, including bipolar disorder, psychosis, dissociative disorder, BPD, MDD & GAD. I am not under the care of the mental health team as the service has NEVER been helpful, I don’t trust the NHS at all, & medical appts trigger panic weeks in advance, make me extremely unwell & trigger bipolar mood episodes.

My physical health issues include Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, seizures caused by POTS, JHS, chronic pain & chronic fatigue. I am undergoing the process of being diagnosed with CFS/ME.

I’m pretty much a mess hahaha, but I’m doing the best I can.

I have a beautiful wheelchair that has given me freedom & a scrap of my life back. It was the first thing I bought when backpayment from benefits came through, & it’s one of the best purchases I’ve ever made!

Because of my disabilities I can’t work. My partner is my full-time carer, and together we’re trying to enjoy this thing called ‘life’ despite our limitations as a disabled-person-carer duo.

You can expect many triggers on this blog, as I battle mood swings, suicidal thoughts, syncope and seizures!

Welcome to my world 😉
