Hey everyone, I am finally able to get back on after the 18+ rules today and thought I would reintroduce myself
Most of you probably don't know me so I will tell you a little background about myself. I can be very shy due to my social anxiety but when people get to know me I am very friendly and fun to talk to or be around. I have been struggling with self harm since I was about 15 and trichotillomania since around 11 or so. I have been fighting the odds and doing alright with my recovery but nobody is perfect and when it comes to things like this its hard to keep a perfect record.
My struggle with self harm makes it harder but I have been training to be a Firefighter/EMT because I love to help people and what little boy never wanted to be a firefighter right? I have gotten to know the chief and he has been helping me out and telling me what I need to do to get in but I first am going to have to finish sorting everything out before I can fully start the process to my dream career.
I have always enjoyed coming to the Adisc forums to just browse it and see what is going on around the world with other's who are just like me. I am not exactly a frequent poster but I get them in here and there when I am interested in certain things or need help with something. Certain things can be hard for me to talk about but I always try to push my own limits to try and defeat my social anxiety so I can talk freely with people rather than get nervous about what I am saying or freaking out that I talked too much. However, Since I try to push my limits you can ask me whatever you want and even if it takes me a couple days to answer I am pushing myself to respond to it, so please feel free to ask anything if you are curious.
Apart from my interest in becoming a Firefighter/EMT I worked as an advice blogger on mental health with 19 others and helped people on a daily basis for anything they needed or any questions that they had regarding mental health. When I am not doing this you could probably catch me working on my computer, Gaming, or talking/hanging out with the select few people I can be open with.
Like I said before, if you have any questions feel free to ask me because I like trying to answer them :P
Thanks for the read, -Secretlyme
