I am a grown man that spends most of my spare time in the gym. No I am not Greek-God muscular or look anything like Arnold, nor do I wish to be. I keep fit because I enjoy the past-time, and it kills off any momentary bouts of depression, which are of little use to man nor beast in my experience.
I am a serious tech-head, but please I implore you with all my hart and soul, please do not ask me about your computer. I spend endless hours doing this at work, and for friends and family and neighbors, and never is there a bigger untruth in the world than, 'It will just take five minutes!'. Believe me it won't.
I chose to join ADISC on a complete whim if I were to be completely honest, having surfed across it by mistake and recognised it as an intelligent place to chat. With any luck I might be able to impart many years of Ab/Dl knowledge to those who may need it, and just maybe learn a few things about myself in the process.
I have known about my condition since I was seven years old. I have met a number of Ab's and one which I currently look after from time to time. I was incontinent until I was 18 years old, so I know how that one feels I can assure you, and it's not the end of the world despite how difficult it is to deal with.
Though I do not suffer depression per-say, I do suffer from what would appear to be indifference. By this I mean that one minute I am deeply involved with forums such as this, and the next I disappear for months on end. This is absolutely nothing personal, but I have a diverse life-style where other aspects often take over without warning. If I do this and mistakenly annoy anyone here, I humbly ask for your forgiveness here and now.
What am I looking for then? Well my mind tends to race from one important topic to another, from current affairs, environmentalism, the latest in health care discoveries, to writing short stories that often take over my life, and what at times seems to be an endless stream of visitors and friends.
However, when I get the opportunity I surf forums such as this and often find posts that have been answered in terms that I believe are incorrect, or insufficient in their response, and I find myself itching to add my own perspective. Especially so when I note that the person asking is frequently someone very young, obviously lost, and in need of some sound advice based on real experiences, not a subjective, agenda based ideal that will only help to confuse, frighten or alienate the poor soul asking the questions. So I guess I want to help by passing on some hard found knowledge and experience.
I am eccentric, sorry about that, and good examples of this are that I do not have a mobile phone, nor have I ever owned one. I do not watch television, though I do like my movie DVD's/Blue-rays, and my friends and I write on my living room walls, usually amusing anecdotes we have found or simple statements of fact that often get ignored by the general populous. I do not have a facebook account, I do not care about the X-factor, Big brother, simply come dancing, or any other reality show, and neither am I interested in social networking beyond forums such as this.
So there you have it. I do hope this can become a long and fruitful past-time here at ADISC, but again I ask that you forgive me if I suddenly stop answering posts for long periods of time. Thanks for your interest. OH BTW My avatar picture... I really like the Ben10 artwork, not Ben10 :-)
