I'm not exactly new to everything, but I'm still getting settled in. We're still restructuring things until they're comfortable for everybody. I'm a touch neurotic, diagnosed with either a fairly severe Anxiety disorder or a very mild Panic disorder, depending on who you talk to. It makes my life a very interesting place.
I use a lot of driving metaphors to describe the way our system works. They fall apart after a while, sure, but it feels more comfortable than a lot of the words we've already found.
Despite enjoying having the others around, I'm still pretty neurotic about it all. It's hard to just do what feels right, due to a fear of being ostracized or institutionalized. It's made harder by the Anxiety/Panic disorder I mentioned before, and my neurotic mother who might just think I'm certifiable and refuses to think this might be real to me. I mentioned irritating people that think it needs treatment? She's one of them.
So, uh, I have no idea if that was too much or not enough information or what. I am terrible at introductions. Hi?
