Hi everybody!

Let me introduce myself. I am in my early 30's, I live in the Netherlands and I am currently unemployed. I have worked part-time in IT for several years but it always felt like a struggle. After a few years I couldn't manage it anymore and then I found out that I had Asperger's. I tried to keep working with less hours but then got physical ill and stopped completely. At the moment I only do some charity work for a couple of hours each week.

I believe I am a highly sensitive person. I don't function very well in environments with all kinds of different stimuli, which is one of main reasons why it's hard for me to find a normal job or to do more charity work. It also makes it harder for me to meet new people, start new relationships and to commit more to my current relationships.

Now I've decided to try out this forum as a means to come in contact with people who possibly can relate to my personality and the way that I view the world.

Welcome!
I had a lot of Dutch friends, and some I had who I lost contact with. Feel at home.
