awkwardsilence Posted July 7, 2011 Share Posted July 7, 2011 Hi, my name is Alex, but you can call me awkwardsilence (or not, I don't care). This is my second go at being on a mental health forum; I tried one last summer but it was tiny and died of inactivity. This one's a bit bigger than I'd like it to be, but it's the only one I've found in the last hour that doesn't classify all of the fora under specific diagnoses. Plus it's kind of silly, which allows be to be a bit silly which takes the edge off of introducing myself. I've been in therapy for the past two years, but have not been formally diagnosed with anything (as far as I know, they have to tell you about that stuff right?), but I'm self-diagnosed with depression and depersonalization disorder (those are kind of obvious, symptom-wise) and something which is probably avoidant personality disorder, plus a tic disorder and some stray symptoms that I'm not sure what to make of. Beyond that, I'm a university student, studying linguistics (I'm currently off for the summer). I'm very interested in language, I like reading, science fiction, games, music, and crappy films. I'm also transgendered; male-assigned-at-birth but I identify as genderqueer/androgyne/something/blurg, I don't really feel like explaining that one any further. I think I'm done with this introduction-thingy. I'm going to lurk for a bit, but I'll likely feel comfortable about posting more later, so see you around I guess.
