my soon to be brother-in-law has aspergers. He's dead set on becoming a pilot. He knows just about everything about the titanic and helicopters. He's extremely smart and gets a lot of really pretty girls (he's a playa xD) He will argue with a brick wall and he never forgets ANYTHING. There is nothing wrong with him, he just has some difficulty relating to people.

O.O I know almost everything about the Titanic too and almost everything on animals. But I can't for the life of me remember math

Open your eyes
Now is the time
To rise up
With darkness we'll still shine

I remember just about anything with the word aquatic in it. Aspies rule and to think evil autism speaks is trying to get rid of autism.

I can safely say today two of my problems are getting the best of me, depression and anxiety.

I think the reason so many people get into fish who have what society calls 'issues' is because they are so calm and yet easy to care for in some ways. Right now I have been dealing with my anxiety and some serious depression and I have noticed having this episode is stressful on my rats because normally I let them out with me and right now they are locked in their cage while i sit locked up in my closet.

I'm not blind but am considered legally blind. Really the only thing I can't do is drive. I often feel isolated. I have no friends in real life except a friend in Indiana and my second mom in Colorado. I often feel frustrated because I have no social life. I think that's why we have our fish. We all need to love and be loved and our pets fullfill some of that need. I have also suffered from anxiety and depression.

Watching fish swim around actually does have a theraputic effect on people. It's been proven to help lower blood pressure, and help with anxiety. :]

depression, social anxiety and rage issues, as well as chronic recurring bronchitis that might be COPD and probable diabetes that i'm too chickens**t to get checked out. none of it really affects my ability to care for our fishies, except when a particular object, tank or decoration is really getting on my nerves (setting up dividers is particularly annoying, felt like throwing the new one we got today across the room by the time i got it just right.)

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

I have/do suffered from chronic depression and anxiety. I have always been able to connect with animals better than people.
I think it's interesting how people with these mental "diseases" seem to be more caring and practical towards animals and people.. Or is that just me? Doesn't there seem to be a correlation between the two?

i personally think animals are worth more than people. an animal can do horrible things if pushed to it, or if it's in the animal's nature, but they never do them with any kind of malice. if there's one species of animal that NEEDS to go extinct, it's humans.
