Hi I'm Lake, a 31 year old diagnosed with high functioning schizophrenia. I am a huge gamer and am looking to make friends with people who share in experiencing mental illness and game a lot. I used to be very well adjusted with a great friend group after diagnosis but they threw me out, and here is amazing and crazy story why.
I was once a very successful biologist but a semester off of graduation I was stricken with schizophrenia and my friends withdrew. After awhile I began to master my condition and they came back, be it an understandably awkward reunion. But life was good and continued as normal for a great many years. One day a friend I gamed with frequently introduced me to a friend of his, he turned out to be gay. This fellow sniffs me out, and before long were doing stuff and i'm officially out of the closet. The kicker here is that I had asked the roommate friend out first, to which he was simply not okay with it and despite being a furry apparently not gay. This sort of dynamic got weird and eroded the friendship until finally my social group ghosted me. Coming out as bisexual in addition scared off the remaining friends and family I had without a few exceptions.
I'm moving forward from this point on. You don't have to be someone else. You don't have to be super charismatic. You don't have to be super rich. Just being yourself is enough. So here I am looking to make new connections and friends. My name is Lake, I play video games every day on both PC and Xbox and listen to EDM. Hit me up and be yourself, message me or leave your info in the comments if your looking to network. Thanks for reading.

A furry is a subculture of people who own and dress up in anthropromorphic animal costumes for fun and meeting people. Some people know more about furries than others. On xbox I have 400 different games I never play, and on pc right now I'm working on stardew valley, classic wow, and looking into path of exile. Nice to meet you CrazyAndy, PM me if you would like to exchange info.

Haha sounds like fun. But most furries are gay? That's what your post said?

Gaming is a good way to escape the worries of everyday life..
