    Hi all,

    I am already a member since April 2009.
    But I never introduced myself.

    I'm mostly a forum "reader", so don't except many many posts from my side ;).
    Well lets go.

    I am Rik de Graaff, 20 years and live in Holland.
    I love gaming on my Nintendo consoles (i.e. my 3DS and DSi).
    Also I own a PS3, so that is the only non-Nintendo console, haha.

    I don't have a job, because I can't work.
    That's because I have Autism, and also a social phobia.
    But I have therapy for my "problems".

    I also love to build my own PC's, and have already made three PC's.
    So I am spending most of my time on computing and gaming.

    This was my story folks.
    If you have a question, don't hesitate to ask it.
    I hope to get some welcome messages here ;).

    Have a nice day,

    Greetz. Rik

    Both thanks for your answers.
    I didn't dare to go outside, I was always in my house.
    I'm now 8 years at different organizations in therapy, but from the last 6 months, I make big big steps.
    I can now go outside, make a phone call.
    All on my own, so it is much better now.

    Thanks again for the interest and messages.

    Greetz. Rik

    6 months is a big step.
    Are you in single therapy, or group therapy?
    Sorry if it's not the best place to speak about that.

    I can't make phone calls (even with family)
    I can't take therapy, because I would need therapy to be able to go to therapy first... humm not easy
    I can't go to shops
    Though, I'm working with lot of people, which seems contradictory (but I don't have to make any first step to go to them)

    in a way, my work helped me, little by little.

    I'm in single, one on one, therapy.
    I cannot work in groups.
    3 people is already too much for me.

    Well, I don't mind talking about it.
    Only if you don't feel happy about it.

    I don't think users would want to be introduced to your long member. :tpi:
