Hi,

About Me:
I'm from Vietnam and went to the US when I was six. I was active and talkative as a kid. 1st-5th grade I was normal with a few friends but never really hanged out, only played tether-ball most of the time at school. Also played with some friends closed to my age out of school sometimes. 6th grade it started changing for some reason, went to middle school, didn't know how to make friends to hang out and no tether-ball to play so felt that I didn't fit in. No friends since then. School recommended a psychologist in 8th grade and they said I was anti-social, took some medications but it didn't work, only made me sleepy in classes. 9th-12th grade I felt every year that the next year will be my end since I didn't fit in with people. But I ended up graduating high school and finished 1 year of college. I'm 19, almost 20 years old ri now, using up most of my time watching anime/manga, drama, playing computer games, etc...I thought that its time to change myself cause I want to continue living without being a burden to my family so last year I joined the Navy hoping it can change myself. I'm not officially in yet but will be going to boot camp this September so trying to exercise to get ready. I also noticed recently from browsing the internet that I have SAD because I have most of the symptoms, not anti-social like the psychologist said. Anyway I'm happy to find out about this site cause there are other ppl who have SAD like me here :)
