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.
