About Me

Born in 1982 in Toronto where I lived the first 2 years of my life. My parents and I then moved to Asia where we lived for the next 4 years. My mother is Chinese (of Malaysian decent), my father white. We lived in Malaysia, China and Taiwan. These formative years have left an indelible mark on me and a sense of South East Asia being a second home. Since the age of 6 I\'ve lived in Vancouver Canada. I\'m currently a student at BCIT trying to earn an IT diploma. While I never finished a degree I have previous education in math, physics and other subjects from SFU. I\'ve had a few interesting retail jobs at times as well. I\'ve also suffered for years from a mix of social anxiety, depression and other issues. I\'m at least a decade behind in some ways developmentally, though I\'m considered an \"old soul\" in other ways as well. I\'m learning to overcome and grow with time and most consider me to be an awesome person once you get to know me. Feel free to drop me a PM any time if you wish to chat about anything!

Doing better.

I'm sure no one remembers but I've posted here off and on about my emotional struggles. Have been semi suicidal in the past and posted here a bit during these dark times.

Well I'm far from solving my problems, but I'm glad to announce that I have been doing better of late. Been back working at NCIX (a computer hardware retailer) for the past month and I'm just about to start a night class today. Just one class to ease my work load next year when I go back full time. I'm exercising every day, 40mins, and losing weight, I've lost 30+ lbs. I'm also seeing psychiatrist and I'm on a couple of meds which seem to be helping. I'm still anxious every day at work and off work but it's at a more manageable level, and it feels good to be back in the real world.

Course I've been here before under almost the same circumstances. I've lost weight before and was working, taking meds and felt better before slipping. And I've slipped emotionally quite a few times in the past, so this is no guarantee I won't again in the future. BUT at least things are looking up instead of down.
