    I think you should mention it and maybe suggest some of the events you've seen that would be more accessible? And possibly look for some more chilled bars with seating areas to show you're wanting to go out and have fun good luck for uni x
    Yep I'm definitely going to try that! Thank you!

    If they are decent mates they will be impressed that you are one of only 24 in the world! How many people can say that?!

    I know, it's probably the only good thing about it!

    Mines actually more mild in comparison to others so I'm actually quite lucky! Some websites have symptoms included which I don't have so it might not be as bad as the one you read.

    So I have found 3 of my 7 flat mates, and we have a group chat going. They are all saying that we are all going to go out together and we would be doing all these freshers events together. The only thing is I have a rare type of Muscular Dystrophy, which while I look absolutely fine, I cannot really do anything other than small amounts of walking. I can't do long walks or dancing or the majority of freshers activities. How do I tell them that I won't be able to go out with them without being a downer and without them being awkward about it? And should I tell the 3 of them now on the group chat, or wait and tell all of my flat mates in person? Thanks guys!

    I have epilepsy and was really nervous about telling my flatmates, especially as I didnt know them that well. When I registered with my universitys disability service, they let my lecturers and residence mentors know (residence mentors are accommodation staff who are also students theyre there in case you have any problems) Then my residence mentors (who they also informed of my epilepsy) came to see me and let my flat mates know. If you have residence mentors at your uni you can ask them to let them know
