[personal profile] recessional posting in [community profile] no_pity
Hi. I decided to do an intro post, too, because as the subject line implies, I am a lemming.

You can call me M. I found the community via [personal profile] staranise, and it seemed interesting enough to be worth following.

I suffer from major depression and PTSD. I am somewhere on the high end of the Aspergers' section of the Autism Spectrum Disorder. My sister is Autistic, as is one of my cousins. One of my cousins is dyslexic, another is ADHD, my other sister is ADD, my father is pretty much Aspergers' and my mother suffered from depression for much of her adult life. I spent my entire life up until the last three years with "I am the normal one, with no illnesses/disabilities" in my head as a self-identity thing, so I'm still getting used to "actually, you suffer from these other things as well."

I'm also asthmatic and get classic migraines, but these don't have as much impact on my life as I want to live it, so I often forget them until they actually rear their ugly heads.

I look forward to seeing where this community goes.
