Hi, I guess I came here because of some troubles that are getting worse despite the fact that I'm ignoring them. After some trauma I was diagnosed with psychotic depression, PTSD, and OCD that is mostly with violent, intrusive recurring thoughts. I'm an introvert and I would still be agoraphobic if not for my wonderful mom and brother. I have a hard time expressing emotions and I'm kind of socially inept.
Besides that, I'm pretty awesome at functioning. I'll complete a training course in a couple months and continue in college. I love Elderscrolls, music, and drawing. I have a terribly dry sense of humor which is sometimes too hardcore for people.

Hi and welcome
You sound like a smart guy. I am not a common visitor but have occasionally checked in. I am shy myself although not an introvert but I know how horrible it can feel to feel unaccepted. I noticed your wording when you said you functioned. I hope I am not overstepping a line here but to me it sounds like you are identifying yourself with your mental problems. I would choose to say other than that I lead a fine live ;).

Good luck with working through your depression ( been there and am still sensitive. Being depressed is horrible in my case it took away my self esteem and took over my live in so many ways. It is cureable though. ).

That's okay. I understand what you meant. I'm just REALLY cynical right now because I've waited too long to deal with these particular problems and I'm in a fair amount of pain. That being said I probably am defining myself by my mental problems. I do lead a good life besides these things and I'm lucky because I survived when others couldn't handle the same situation. That makes me feel lucky and extremely guilty all at the same time. Life is bittersweet.

Hi ghosts and welcome to the forum.

Sorry to hear you're in pain. I hope the forum helps in some way. Nothing wrong with a dry sense of humour; I'm sure you'll fit in just fine :)
