About aspiebabe

I live in south western Ontario, Canada. I am energetic, love animals, love to lead people, but can have a hard time doing so due to Asperger’s Syndrome, PTSD and General Anxiety Disorder. My goal in life is to help other people in any way I can, and if something is hindering that, I want to work through those issues to be able to help others more efficiently. I love music, animals, recreation and leisure, people and I generally love life. (at least when my depression and anxieties aren’t taking over.) I am me, and I sometimes find it hard to describe myself, although most of the time I am quite articulate. I am open minded and when feeling alright I am up for a challenge.
