    When I was in 2nd Grade, my teacher suffered from a kidney stone. I was extremely sad and terrified for her but now she's okay.

    Separation disorder is very hard to over come. How did you do it?

    Not sure actually:

    All I remember was that when I was in preschool, I didn't want to be away from my parents. Fast forward to 3rd Grade, I was not comfortable having sleepovers at friend's or even other family member's houses because of missing my family (I had friends sleep over at my house;but I never went to their houses for that reason). Even as late as 5th Grade this was an issue, but suddenly, for some reason, it was over.

    Might as well bump this up.

    I have Asperger's Syndrome, which means I have a hard time socializing with people, I'm very sensitive to loud noises (which is why I hate thunderstorms), and I tend to obsess over certain things (Homestar Runner is the big one for me currently, as a lot of you know by now).

    I'm also really picky about some things, and I tend to apologize over every little thing... :oops:

    Oh, and I just recently learned how to tie my shoes, which is something I could not do before. :)

    Here are my issues:
    -Depression
    -ADHD (and I HATE having ADHD)
    -Anxiety

    And, I think in @Old Thunder's opinion, an "unhealthy" obsession with my cat.
    (I'm just kidding about that last one. Actually, my cat is a very good form of therapy for the depression)

    When I got tagged in this I thought people were insinuating I wasn't normal. Other than a bout with depression I am a perfect specimen of a human being, thank you very much and pass the caviar.

    Depression is really a silent killer of so many people. I have suffered it for years, and it's almost taken my life a couple of times as wel l

    No, I was just making fun of you making fun of my obsession with my cat, that's all.

    Oh, and to add on to that, I don't like making eye contact with people.

    I used to kind of be like that, not so much anymore.

    Though I'll be honest. I don't like making eye contact when I'm about to walk past someone. :smirk:
