Learning Disabled
I’m a happy 21 year old male whom has a rare condition called KLF1a which is a gene mutation that has affected my walking mainly but I also have global learning delay. My disability is part of me not all of me and I’d like to be able to make new friends here as it can be difficult to make new friends when you walk differently from them or don’t understand complicated chatting...lol gets frustrating. I’m cheerful and kind and love animals and anything funny like fawlty towers or laurel and hardy. I’m a huge Pokemon fan too.

Brain Injured
Hi, my name is Maddi and I am recovering from a stroke two years ago that left me paralyzed on the left side. After spending two years on my rehab, I've finally reached a point where I can work full-time and get out and meet new people (while still spending time on my personal rehab of course). I'm the author of Fashion Fwd: How Today's Culture Shapes Tomorrow's Fashion, and am now working on my second book about my rehab experience and the role of positive attitude in dealing with setback. I'd love to connect with others who have dealt with major health setbacks and challenges and learn how you dealt with the challenge. Onward!

Depression / Anxiety
Not really sure what to write here so I will just keep it somewhat simple.
Have suffered with panic Disorder since I was young. Have also had some times of depression, but probably no more than other people just from life events at .
I guess I would like to find someone that understands the difficulties of even little everyday things when suffering with panic attacks or anxiety attacks, and not make me feel bad about myself like most people do.
If you also have an anxiety disorder, how does it make you feel when people keep telling you to just relax? Lol for me it's now like "on wow, I wish I had thought of that" just gets frustrating and sad i guess.
Well if anyone actually read this whole thing you are either bored by now of all my typing or maybe you would like to talk about things sometime..
Maybe we can each find someone who understands how difficult things can be sometimes.

I have PTSD, schizoeffective disorder (which for those who don't know is both schizophrenia and bipolar or depression) you can be depressive type or bipolar type. I'm bipolar type. I still deal with major depression. My mom is schizophrenic and has tried to take her life several times. My dad and one of my brothers are very bad alcoholics. I have 2 brothers. Biologically. 2 step brothers and one step sister. I have very little contact with many members of my family. Physicaly I have a bicuspid aortic valve 2 leaf instead of one. I have a heart murmur. I have fibromyalgia. Seizures, and unexplained white matter in my brain. I have really bad lymphedema.
Besides all that I love my life most of the time. I have worked as a CNA and a security specialist. I have worked with physically I'll, terminally ill, and mentally ill. I have taken care of my 2 grandmothers until they passed away, and I helped take care of my grandfather who has dementia.

I'm here to meet new friends, talk with anyone who's needing support or a friend to talk to. It doesn't matter to me if you're a caregiver or someone with disabilities. I just love to write and meet new people.
