Picked on growing up as a child. Lack of self-confidence leading to other health issues, such as being overweight. Bullying resulted in tendency to be quick to anger. Suppressed into violent thoughts resulting in horrible social skills, a lack of self-preservation, and manic behaviour leading to several attempted suicides at an older age (16-21). Today, driven, more positive and hopeful […]

I hope you like reading! I want to provide a lot of backstory and details here, so this is likely to be very extensive. This is incredibly important to me, so I want to provide as much information as I can muster for this box right now, though hopefully without too much unnecessary fluff.

Was in therapy or counselling from age twelve through eighteen, due to bullying igniting temper problems in Year 6 (Aus). Starting high school, the temper issues faded giving way to anxiety, depression and hypervigilance. I was diagnosed with Depression and General Anxiety Disorder between Year 8 and 10. I don’t remember much from those years, possibly due to the mental […]

When I was in junior high, I began to develop anxiety problems. I’d be convinced I had a horrible illness and no one could convince me otherwise. It was incredibly detrimental to myself and my family. I was given a prescription for prozac and it allowed me to function again. A few years a later, I began to develop OCD, […]

It’s hard to know for sure when I started to feel extremely anxious in social situations, definitely at a young age, around 6 or 7. I have never been diagnosed with anything officially, but have always felt this way. That is also around the time I started to play a lot of games. Others (parents) might look at videogames as […]
