Hi dudes


Been having some issues with depression recently, something i've always had but minor enough to try and deal with, sans medications. This last year has been a doozy in terms of things going wrong.
Someone on an unrelated forum called me a Sperg the other day about something i said it it suddenly clicked. I did a couple of online tests and some soul searching... the pieces fit.
I'm more than likely Aspie.

I'm obsessive about silly stuff, i stimm rubbing my hands or somewhere on my face or scratching my head, and i bite my nails. I have trouble regulating sleep, I have an excellent memory for facts and things i enjoy, but can't remember people birthdays, my empathy for people troubles or problems is way low, i find it hard to be sympathetic, making friends, keeping friends, keep apointments, or return phone calls. i'll often sit on the web all day and browse the same 3 forums reading the same threads, or then open wikipedia find a topic and read EVERYTHING i can about it. but i'm not a numbers guy, i hate math and i'm terrible at it.

I can usually keep a job once i get one, but finding one and calling people about work is tough. I always end up arguing with employers about the best way to do things, and i always want to do it my way. I'm a outside the box thinker when it comes to problems at work, i love pouring over plans and working out the best way to tackle something, then building it.

I'm extremely obsessive about sport fishing, that's my happy place and i go all out with it. If i meet someone fishing i can talk to them for hours... about anything. without a rod, no chance.

Anyway that ended up being a bit longer than i planned.

Howdy !

Cool, another Aussie. Welcome! I'm also recovering from depression. This place certainly helps, especially getting to know like-minded people.

This made me laugh – it sounds way too much like me:
