I'm horrible at introductions, hope this will do. My name, or at least self appointed nickname, is Firelord. I am a young man in my early twenties and found this place by suggestion from a friend of mine. I live in the Appalachian Mountain region of New England. I'm a bold, adventurous young man who is fond of hiking, writing, kickboxing, playing video games, playing guitar and reading comic books. I have had problems in the past with emotional abuse at the hands of bullies as well as teachers, which at one point developed into violent, aggressive behavior and has since evolved into a personality akin to a somewhat protective canine who has a tendency to be over enthusiastic about certain things. The main reason I am here is because somebody believed that my fiery personality, never say die attitude and happy go lucky tendencies, as well as my own past experiences might do others some good, while my own remaining, underlying problems might be helped if I spent some time talking with people who've been through similar situations to what I have been.
