Hey there,

I've been gone for like a year now, many things have happened, but first I think so I should reintroduce myself.
I am Rick and I'm from the Netherlands.
I will be 20 in a few weeks and I am in my third year of college, though currently, doing an internship.
Last time I came here was because I had found out that the way I was feeling wasn't exactly normal.
After some trouble at college (skipping a presention class) I got my school counselor to call my parents and tell them what was going on as I could not get myself to do it.
They (my parents) were quite understanding and they set things in motion.
Got me a trip to the GP, who refered me to a psychologist. Psych had me do lots of tests.
She concluded that I have (classic) autism which in turn made me socially anxious.

This helped me explain a lot of things, not just anxiety related.

After that I signed up for something like a social skills training, although I don't think it has helped me a lot really.
I've improved a lot since I last visited this place but there's still a bunch of issues left.

Anyway I'll be around =p.
