08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

Ok, I am finally saying this. I have shared this with my certain friends, and vaguely touched it with others. In one of my previous posts I had mentioned how I can't work. This is true, but I never really went over why. I am 27 years old, yet my knees are that of someone about twice my age at most. Most days I have a hard time standing for any period of time. If I am walking, that period of time is longer, but my legs still hurt alot. On top of that, there are times sitting makes my legs stiff. This is one of my barriers, the reason for my knees is a condition called chondromalacia patella. My leg problems started when I had osteomyelitis as a child. I could try and get a job where I am sitting, and not have to worry about my legs. But as I said I have other barriers. I have been diagnosed with severe OCD when I was 11-12 years old in grade 7. And within the last few months, I had myself officially tested, and was diagnosed with moderate aspergers. I know this is alot, I am not looking for pity, but I am posting this as information so people can understand me better. I don't get social cues, I rant and can get very obsessive about certain things.

Aw, I understand the situation you're in.  Just keep the faith friend and everything will work itself out in time.  Don't let those conditions disable but empower you!

Best of luck!

Thanks. I'm actually in the process of hoping to get financial funding from the goverment because of my barriers to employment.  I just can't get a job, I've tried, and I just can't.

Thanks. Yeah, for so long I was afraid of mentioning the OCD to people, and now that I know I have aspergers. Its bad, One of the things about it, a person with aspergers would act 2/3 their age. Which is what I do. I may be 27, but I act and feel like I'm much younger.

Don't worry about it. First step in keeping problems in check - don't worry. :) The rest will fall into place likewise. :hug:

Thanks. Its tough, especially since it makes my parents frustrated. I mean, though they know about my issues, they still try and tell me I have to learn to change my behavior. Be aware and adjust. And that the aspergers is no excuse for certain behavior. nothing horrible, just things they don't like and find in appropriate and irrating. I don't act out in puplic, (maybe a tiny tiny bit if i can't help it.) But I can't help it, I try to adjust, but they say I'm not trying, or I don't because Iknow myself, and they get mad.
