You are welcome to do this, if you are comfortable. I just decided I would mostly out of boredom and to help my fellow Dreamwidth users get to know me and my disability a lot better, since it seems more like I have developed both an online and offline persona that are both very different. XD

1.) I am the complete opposite of my online personality. In other words, I don't act the same way I do online then what I do offline. I am actually a very shy and quiet person offline who tends to function at the level of an eight year old. You already know my online persona.

2.) I have poor motor coordination in my left hand because my right hand covers most of my dominance. This can actually cause a bit of a disability for me since when I do use my left hand, instead of my right hand (IE, shaving my legs when holding a razor, using utensils, etc...) because it feels weaker and less able to hold things properly. You might think this normal but for me, I feel like it makes my life challenging because a lot of the times, a person uses both hands variously, while I always use my right hand because it's stronger.

3.) I do require sameness/structure, especially online. That means things have to stay the same and for me, i feel that when i am used to something being what it is, then I don't think it should be changed. It's always been difficult for me because of anxiety and dislike for changes when they do happen.

4.) I do take things literally, meaning that things can hurt me online and cause triggering affects, as they would offline. I do take the tone of your words seriously because for me, it's hard to tell what you are trying to say and other times it comes off as rude, when you might not be rude at all.

5.) I am an auditory learner. That means I can hear things and memorize them through auditory. In school, this baffled my teachers because where I had such a hard time studying from books or worksheets, I still zipped through my tests with flying colors because of this. My iPad is programmed so that it will read things to me when I tell it to do so, and helps me understand what is being said better, though my computer doesn't, as it doesn't have the right tools to do so.

6.) I have trouble hearing in my right ear. I have also failed my hearing tests and hear things I don't want to hear while also NOT hearing things I do or NEED to hear... if that makes sense. I've considered this to be due to numerous ear infections growing up that have possibly damaged my hearing.

7.) I take medication regularly. My first one covers both my sensory issues and ADHD symptoms as it is an stimulant medication. My second one helps regulate my depressive states and emotional problems that used to be very disabling. I also take another medication as needed for anxiety.

8.) I am a written expressionist. One of the reasons my writing is nearly college level like is because of practice and recognizing writing as a talent for expressing myself, especially when verbal and emotional expression tend to be more weaker. Most people have trouble understanding this and think I should be rediagnosed or evaluated.

9.) I am in therapy both for medication regulation and also see a therapist to discuss things like regulating my anxiety and emotions.

10.) I have terrible reading comprehension due to what I said in number five. It makes reading very difficult, even though I can read at almost college level. If you gave me a book, told me to read and then ask me questions about what I read, I wouldn't be able to tell you because I wouldn't remember.

11.) Music is like calming therapy for me. You give me music and I won't speak for hours. I will also be more calmer in stressful situations.

12.) I carry around my Kaito plush everywhere I go. He calms me and makes me feel happier because he helped me get through Saboten without any problem.

If you want to know more, feel free to ask. XD I got bored so... yeah.
