It’s difficult for me personally to identify emotions a lot of the time too.

Dogs and cats are a sensory nightmare. They bark, they shed and the idea of them touching me is gross to me.

Wet clothes suck. I have an issue with accidentally swallowing water in the pool which means I can’t go underwater. I do love swimming though.

My number one tip for socializing is to remember that people love talking about themselves and their pride and difficulties.
