Jumping in with both feet


Recommended Posts

Hi.

My name is Kathryn and I'm certifiablly nuts. But then again, I have been for my entire life. So that's not big news.

Any way. I found these boards through the forums on crazypedia.org.

So what to say about myself beside crazy? Ummm... I'm 29 (and have been for the last couple years). I am the primary caretaker for my grandmother who has dementia. I've been dx with depression, ptsd and borderline, most likely from a combo of screwed up genes and the fact that I was abused. I used to SI but have been free for 6+ years now. Been hosptialized too many times. Off meds for more than a year now, but conisdering going back on them.

Let's see. I'm into technology. In my free time I do tech support for software. I started blogging a few months ago. I'm trying to teach myself programming in C++ as well as trying to learn a bit of PHP and MySQL so I can actually do some nifty web development type stuff. I play the flute. I like art.

Pretty much your typical nutcase...

Thank you all for your warm welcome.

I will take a look at the Wiki. I don't have a lot of experience with them. Just fooling around on one that is part of Pirates@Home (long story... but you can Google it).

The atmosphere is interesting. Very unlike other support forums I've been in. Neither is bad, they're just different.

Hi Kathryn,

I'm new too- just did my intro a few minutes ago (yours is much more to the point, lol, mine is all blahblahblaaah) but I'm glad that we both found this place ;) I lurked for a while before joining and I agree with some others when they say that it's different than some of the other support groups out there. The big difference that I noticed is that it's not all people going "wahh wahh, woe is me" all the time- it's really based on helping other people through your own experience. Of course, everyone needs the "woe is me" post sometimes, we go through a lot of tough stuff with MI, but the attitude and understanding here gives me a lot of hope.

Hi Meg. Welcome to the place. I've been pretty quiet, but reading. There's a lot of humor here and that's a good thing for me.

I'm not usually a woman of many words. But hey. We're all different.
