Example text

I switched easily between all three identities. The problem arose when the separate worlds met.

My sister from Nottingham – my loco parentis – on picking up on the differing and conflicting standpoints and likely 18 Aphasia inside out difficulties, took my side about the land issue and represented me to the family.
