Hi everyone, and welcome to my blog. My name is Choco McInnes, and I am a University of Essex Sociology student in the UK. I am studying a module called Digital Society and part of this module is to run a blog. So, here I go!
I am professionally diagnosed with dissociative disorder (ICD code F44.9, if you’re interested), emotionally unstable personality disorder traits (borderline personality disorder is a more common name), and comorbid anxiety and depression. I am also diagnosed with dyslexia and gender dysphoria. I am going to talk about my experiences with my mental health, my contact with the NHS, and what this means for my normal disordered life.
