Hello! I'm new here! :)
« on: June 27, 2014, 03:16:53 AM »
Hi, I'm AKRaven (because I couldn't think of anything better), and I am from Alaska. I decided to make a topic here in the introduction forums because I got a message prompting me to do so after posting in the GAD forum. I was kind of intimidated at first, but this is coming from the girl who doesn't like multiplayer games because I feel like people are judging me. After getting a very motivational reply to a topic I posted I decided it was worth the risk. So here goes...

I am a young teen starting my freshman year this August and I was diagnosed with GAD just five months ago. I found this site when looking for a place to get help with an issue I've been having regarding my anxiety (luckily I found the help I needed). I am a bit of a nerd and enjoy watching anime and gaming when I get the chance. I also love Sci-Fi as a genre for anything, be it books, movies, video games, ect. I can speak fluent Spanish and am learning Japanese.

I have a near two-year-old little brother named Ethan (and I'm pretty sure he's the main cause of my anxiety!). I am one of his main caretakers this summer by putting him to bed, getting him ready in the morning, and some more work in between.

My dream in life is to become a chemical engineer or a theoretical physicist. I also want to visit and possibly live in Japan.

That's all I can think of. Just a warning, I'm not the best at spelling or grammar! Thanks for taking the time to read this! I hope I didn't waste your time! :)
