Introducing myself!

Good morning, afternoon, evening!

My name is Sirius, well technically it is my nickname but I don't go by my birth name. I am 25 years old, I used to work on psychiatric wards both private and NHS run but I quit my job as a support worker before the recent pandemic hit the UK. 
I have always had a love for BSL, I have learned little bits a pieces here and there over the years but never anything substantial enough to communicate properly. I have decided to fully educate myself now because of a couple of reasons, i.e. a general love for BSL, wider range of opportunities surrounding BSL, but the main reason is that I have Dissociative Identity Disorder; so my brain holds alternate states of consciousness as well as my own(a.k.a alters), and one of my alters is mute. They do not speak, they only communicate through writing, typing, pointing or facial expressions. This makes it a bit difficult for myself to communicate with them and for them to communicate whilst they are fronting if people don't know about their being mute. So we figured that a good way to try communicate visually would be BSL. Not only will it help us, but possibly others aswell.

Now we just need to convince our friends and family to learn as well, it's a brilliant skill to have and I am looking forward to learning more.
