About Me

    About me
    To start things off, I may have Asperger's, and at any rate I have Asperger's-like tendencies, so I might say things that come out wrong. I sometimes can't tell if I'm being rude.

    I have more to say here but that seemed more important, for now. I'll just say more random things.

    I probably love Sherlock Holmes because (in the original stories) he is in fact quite theatrical, in a way that I always wanted to be but real life does not permit.

    Putting this last, because I want to have it out here but I don't want to make people read through this to get to other information...
    My issues/problems/things that give me difficulty/personal history:
    *Started cutting myself in December 2007. (Haven't cut since April 2010, though.)
    *As I said, I have Asperger's-like tendencies which means I sometimes have trouble understanding what people mean if they don't spell it out (like, don't expect me to read between the lines).
    *I take no responsibility in my life which hurts my self-esteem, but I'm too apathetic to change that. I'm working on it, though.
    *As of December 1, 2012, I consider myself a recovering Internet addict.
    *I get obsessive over people--to an extent that bothers me. "People" can be people I know personally or actors of whom I'm a fan.
    *My childhood was dysfunctional, but what's worse is that it didn't look dysfunctional so my family is only going to counseling now, after my parents are divorced and I, the youngest of five, am 18.
    *I am a fan of so much British media that my mind practically lives in Britain (sometimes). I occasionally use British English without meaning to.

  • Signature
    My verbal rejection, if there was one, of whatever you just suggested does not reflect how very useful it is to me, nor how very grateful I am to you for taking the time to respond.

    Also I have trouble knowing what is acceptable to say. The above is sincere and meant to be polite/reassuring.
