Hi from Scotland.

Hi. My name’s Deryck.

I was diagnosed with a rare hormone deficiency in my mid teens. Manual labour and/or being physically active has always been an issue. I always try to be social despite changes in my energy and mood levels. 

Before the pandemic I was also diagnosed with ptsd. (Long story about noisy neighbours.)

I like to be creative, enjoy movies and documentaries, video games and world culture. Hope to find some like minded people here and offer support.

    I like indie movies, foreign language, animated, comedy etc. Most genres. Old and new. I love a good black and white movie as much as a modern one. I used to love action and horror but can’t tolerate the more intense stuff anymore.

    In terms of documentaries, I like real life, art, and nature.   The last one that I watched on Netflix was called The Trader (Sovdagari.) It followed a second hand salesman travelling around rural Georgia.

    Oh, I'm with you on horror @Autumn_Feeling -  it's not a genre I've ever liked, & some action films can now be a bit too much. I do however like some crime films & TV series, but can't watch true crime documentaries. I like documentaries about art & nature too, as well as about ancient civilisations & travel. I've looked, & see Sovdagari is on Netflix; it does look interesting, but perhaps a difficult watch, so I hope I can find it, & thank you for mentioning this documentary.
    Which artists do you like?
