About Me Um... I never know what to write in these. I'm a very shy, 25-year old, genderqueer oddball, living in pretty much the middle of nowhere. Planning to finally start college in the [relatively] near future.

Passionate about mental health awareness -- particularly lessening the stigma attached to many disorders. I've battled depression and anxiety, amongst other disorders, for most of my life, and would especially love to talk with people with similar experiences, or at least offer my support.

Anything else you'd like to know, just ask; I'm friendly.
