After reading the stickies, I thought now would be a good time to introduce myself to everyone.
My name is Shaun. I'm 21 and live in sunny England.
A bit about me
I apologize in advanced if anything is a bit graphic. I don't wish to offend anyone at all. So I'll begin from the start.
Since I was 5 I've had terrible problems with my bowels from terrible constipation to having some bad accidents. I had been taken to see many doctors and I was never given a diagnosis as to what could be causing these problems.
When I was 11 I was close to having a diagnosis of what the problem was but unfortunately in December 2002 I was diagnosed with a brain tumor so all focus went to that.
I had managed my condition for about 3-4 years but lately it has been returning to how it was. I went to see a surgeon not too long ago and I was offered an operation to try and correct the problem which is open to me any time. For now though, I occasionally use diapers to control the situation and avoid embarrassing accidents.
After the tumor I have been left with many mobility problems and I have also been diagnosed with Short Term Memory Loss.
Ok, I think that's enough of the serious stuff for now
I am a musician and I play Guitar, Drums and Bass. I go to a Buskers (Open Mic) night on Wednesdays and perform with some amazing people. Sometimes when there isn't many people in, me and the guys just have what can only be described as a big jam session.
I also love playing video games. My favorites are The Sims 3, GTA, Euro Truck Simulator and Train Simulator. I use my laptop for gaming and I couldn't think of anything better.
I like to spend my spare time with my family, talking to friends online and watching a lot of tele. I would love to learn how to cook because basically I'm terrible in the kitchen haha.
I spent 3 years at college doing Music Performance and I really enjoyed it. I'm currently training as a makeup artist and I'm looking forward to doing something I really enjoy.
I came on to this website to hopefully connect with people who are in a similar situation as me and to find some new friends or even acquaintances to talk to.
Before I found this website, I was looking for information on the operation I have been offered. I found a post on here about it and decided to sign up to the website after i read it.
Thank you for reading my long introduction and I look forward to talking to all of you,
