So... where to begin

My names Adam, 21 and stuck in the middle of nowhere, Ohio.

Currently diagnosed with depression, anxiety, aspergers, and ADHD.

I had a pretty decent childhood, certainly not the best, but also not the worst.

Consider myself to be bright. But had no drive academically. Leading to a lot of fights between me and my dad.

Didn't have any true friends as a kid (only ones that only pretended to enjoy my company, but never went out of their way in the slightest to accomidate for it)

awkward when attempting to try and be social. But fortunately my humor and my general "wholesomeness" (as the younglings are saying these days) is whats keeps me socially afloat.

Almost never get out of the house, live with mom 57 and dad 65. Also have an irrational fear of driving (everyone in my family has been involved in an accident. And have seen firsthand how it lingers on to affect you and your family dynamics.

Never been in a relationship. Never seem to be in any position to form one, and aspergers makes reading people a bit difficult. Hoping to find someone someday, but know deep down its probably gonna be another dozen years or so...

Having a self image issue that comes and goes (some pot belly that refuses to go away)

Don't drink or smoke or do drugs or anything. Addictions are not an issue

This basically sums me up. Can't wait to explore and hear from others =^)
