I wouldn’t say I am gifted or genius but I was pretty good in college before my sz. I got invited by teachers to paid math competitions. After sz while on Abilify I finished 5 semesters of university but I had better grades before the sz.

I think I’m a fairly good songwriter. I don’t play guitar as well as I used to, but I can still write a tune.

You also know a lot about computers. I think you said you were a computer programmer.

@Aziz I was a computer programmer, but that was twenty years ago before my accident. I imagine I could still code, but not fast enough to make a living at it

I was told by my music composition teacher that I “had what it took to be a popular contemporary music composer”. So, I produced three albums and publicized them. I got some critical recognition but almost zero public acceptance so, I quit composing. Way too much work for so little gain. Now, I’m focusing on learning to play my instrument.

I was the brightest pupil in Elementary/primary school, and even in high school (middle school) people would call me a sweat for being a know it all.

But I was also a bit of a clown and would get sent out of class sometimes.

In Bio/Chem/Physics my friends and I would burn pens in the bunsen burner xD

Good times

My grades suffered when I got depressed, but I still learn things quite quickly.

I could have gotten mostly A’s in college and gone to Medical school, but I had terrible anxiety and used to skip class a lot. I graduated with a B average and didn’t even try to get an internship so I couldn’t get the best jobs. Now I feel like I’m at the mercy of evil liars. My life has been mostly miserable since I stopped working.
