γ-quantum, berlin, germany

ok, so i registered quite some time ago and have been posting for the past few days, but i thought i'd add a little info about myself, too.
who knows, maybe its good for something, e.g. meeting similar people.


i was born and raised in germany.
i learned english on the internet though, so the language barrier shouldnt really be one.

i'm 25 years old, female, orphaned, single and currently living in a flatshare - but am looking to move out to a flat because i want to live alone; having people and especially noise around me 24/7 stresses me extremely.

its too late to find out for sure, but i think that my dad had a lot of autistic / ADHD traits, so if a genetic component matters, i certainly got it from him.

i have the typical ADHD problems; i cant concentrate on the news or books, it takes HOURS for me to sort out stuff for an appointment, etc. - i am also very impulsive / aggressive and cant take stress well at all. i have trouble falling alseep because i think of random things - not nessecary worrying. i could just e.g. notice my breathing, think of the lung, and then HAVE TO jump out of the bed to look up how exactly the lung works again on the internet / wikipedia.

apart from that, i am very much what would be refered to as a 'nerd' - i hardly ever go out (though i occasionally do like the company of people who are alike me, but not every day), i'd rather sit and learn about things i find fascinating on the internet, where in some days, i can even go in hyperfocus mode and concentrate really well... and i like to do experiments, as far as that is possible at home... and collect stuff, like i have a working ECG to play with. i'm into medicine (i know most about cardiology and radiology but am interested in EVERYTHING), taxidermy, natural science / nuclear science, and enjoy just being with my computer. the screen, the way my keys feel, the incredible awesomeness of the internet, that's my world. its infinite possibilities cause it to never get boring. i feel true affection towards my computer and the internet, it's the greatest thing in the world, i couldnt live without it.

Hi and welcome!

What you wrote was quite interesting!
If you think you have AS (Asperger's Syndrome), you might check out wrongplanet.net ... that's another great place to visit.

Just don't leave here and never come back though!

Re: γ-quantum, berlin, germany

What a lovely introduction. I also love the internet. It is my looking glass into the world. When you feel better alone and lonely at the same time the internet comes in handy.

Welcome!

Re: γ-quantum, berlin, germany

thanks for the warm welcome, everybody!

thanks for the tip, wsmac - i think i heard of that place already. i think i'd better not go there though - this is currently the only forum i am at, as i get very confused if i am registered at more than one forum (i did that as a teen), like, i cant remember what was being said in which forum and by whom, etc. (i cant remember names anyway, im glad most people have an avatar - too bad if that avatar is their face though, as i cant remember faces either... but i'll then just try and remember the raw colors instead of the exact pattern they form. good thing it's a still image after all.).

anyway, yeah, i think it'd get too confusing and time-consuming if i registered on another forum... and, wether what if i have asperger's or not, i wouldnt be able to do much about it anyway... exept learn coping strategies or something. im not bothered by my 'nerdyness' anyway, while i am bothered very much with my concentration problems and impulsivity - and there's even medication to help with that! so, i feel like ADHD is more of a variable, while asperger's is a constant... well both isnt really, but one can be helped with medication, thats what i mean. thats why i registered on a US forum, too - people here are MUCH more knowledgable about ADHD, especially adult ADHD, than germans. in german forums, its 'ritalin, amphetaminsulfate, ritalin, amphetaminesulfate'... thats the only stuff that's available. if somebody mentions something like omega 3 acids, they get stared at like aliens.
ok this is obviously exaggerated, but you get the idea... you have like a dozen medications in the US for adult ADHD, while we have NONE and can only use two that are for children off-label (+ pay yourself) as adults. also, the research on the subject seems far more advanced in the US. so, thats why im here, and i typed out way too much again so i'm better stopping now.

lol thanks, and dont worry about it... first of all, german is an even worse language than english, with all the useless der/die/das stuff as well as capital letters for nouns etc. etc. - second, most people here wouldnt understand german i belive, so nevermind.
