Hi. I do too many things. I dissociate very often and have a good grasp on some other disorders like DID/OSDD, and I've been interested in robotics for years and am also a competent musician. I play the cello, the bass guitar, and am a bass singer in choir. I am still learning so much about myself. I have very mild autism, mild depression, pretty severe anxiety, DPDR, and pretty bad inattentive type ADHD. Your limits don't define you. Ask me about my combat robots, or don't, I just think they're cool

      @nik10 through everything I've done, it really just is about knowing what you can and can't do, The secret to learning a lot is learning how much you don't know. If you know where to improve and your capability to learn, you can improve there and achieve a lot, and a great way of doing that is by going and trying everything. I've invested myself and failed in trying many many different things and picked many other things up about myself along the way. I wanted to be an architect in 8th grade so I dedicated myself and looked deep into the field. I learned I can't sketch on paper and do math on paper. I wanted to be a programmer freshman year. I learned I can't sit still at a computer. I've also learned my boundaries through music classes, I learned where I could improve and practiced there and became section leader. I still have many things I am bad at, but knowing those things and how to work without or around them has helped me more than attempting to learn them more. Right now I'm in a cybersecurity phase. I still have so much to learn there. It's all about what you aren't. I'm still a teenager, and my advice has nothing to back it up and nothing is saying it will work for everyone or will make you successful or even achieve your goals, in fact it might overwhelm you like it did to me, but diving in deep has made me very aware and capable, knowing who I am not before I figure out who I actually am. You've actually probably used this method before, listening to music you try something out, listen to it, say if it's not right, you learn what you don't like, and moving on and repeating until you find out what you do like and knowing a lot about exactly what you're into and what you're not, so you can avoid something you won't like or something you wouldn't be interested in.

      I’m definitely taking your words as a take home message - “your limits don’t define you”. Thank you for this 🙏

      Hey ino, sounds like you are a very talented and creative person. It's inspiring how you do so many things even though you have some disorders. You must tell me how you learn all these things!
