    Hey! My name is Kyle, I am 23 and I’m from South Africa. :p

    I was misdiagnosed with ADHD for many years and ended up severely depressed and suicidal due to my family, peers and teachers not been able to understand my behavior. My first psychiatrist was not very helpful and ended up making things worse for me. My second one was very helpful and helped me get through a lot. A while later I was diagnosed with ASD after I became curious about aspergers during a trip to Croatia.

    I have an IQ of 174 and it made things a bit complicated when trying to find out what was wrong with me as people with extremely high IQ’s often show autistic traits. I failed nearly every subject since grade 3 but, I was programming and creating modifications for my favorite games since Grade 4 (TES Oblivion mostly). I dropped out of school after finishing grade 10 and made music as method to release some of my emotions (I have AP). I got married very young to a girl from Croatia that I met in 2014 whilst doing music. We’ve been married for 4 years. I’m lucky enough to have a wife who is very understanding and does everything in her power to support me. :)

    I was very hesitant on joining this forum since I am extremely anti-social, but I decided to do so to try recover my ambition which has degraded after years of chronic depression and emotional trauma. I’m hoping to make some new friends and hopefully regain my ambition! I love games, anime and music! If anyone has Steam or a WoW account I’d be very happy to add and play some games with you!

    Thank you for reading. ^^

    Hi and welcome, I hope that you enjoy it here, people are friendly. Sounds like you're emerging from a lot of challenges.

    I am very unsocial, always have been, but it hasn't meant I can't have a career or some very enjoyable times with others. (I noticed now you say you're anti social, but for me, I say unsocial, I need a lot of space and I don't enjoy unstructured social interaction or gatherings, as I can't navigate these really.)

    A forum's ideal for me!

    Welcome to the forums Moshi moshi!
    I've never been a social person either. This is a good way to communicate without being in a real time
    situation.
