Hey! Lol, I'm Chinese. Chibi Maruko-chan just happens to be one of my fav. anime characters. I don't watch that many Animes actually. xP
Wanna talk on MSN?

I think it would be interesting to one day have a thread about what it's like to be asian and suffer from SA since I think statistics show that asians are more likely to suffer from SA than any other race.
Culture has definitely had a say in my SA and it would be interesting to haer your stories as well.

yes I'm asian! like the above person mentioned, asians generally DO NOT PUT IMPORTANCE ON MENTAL DISORDERS! I don't even bother telling the majority of asians honestly, cept my "bestfriend" but only because she has mental disorders. sometimes i think my bf also belittes my SA & OCD as he just doesn't understand & says he has it too when I'm sure he doesnt !! I'm southeast Asian, if you want to be friends PM ME!

also, would you guys like to create a support group? "asians against SA" jk. a small online support group? i''m thinking of creating a group where we have weekly goals. and there seems to be good amount of asians, cus it'd be nice if we had a small group of 10 or less =)

I've been thinking that an eGroup for Asian sufferers of SA would be a useful thing to have but I wasn't sure how much interest there would be in it. Seems like there is at least a little bit of interest.

I think there are definitely social and cultural aspects of SA that may be unique to Asians and can serve as grounds for discussion.

yeah lets start one! take turns getting to know each other and then come up with a weekly goal program? i think having a small group is good because we won't break off into our own little groups and we can better develop closer relationships =D

Might I suggest forming an eGroup? Should be just the thing for this type of discussion. There is a link at the top of the page. they can be as open or as private as you like.

I usually don't like calling attention to my asian-ness, but I would join that group, if only for a little while.
Same here, can't say I'm too proud to be an Asian male, but then again I'm not too proud of anything. I am comfortable being judged by other asians though, so that's why I'm being kind of open about it here.

mmm hmm... wait what is? :)
