Hi,

I am 25 years old, diagnosed with Aspergers and OCD age 21. I live in the UK.
I am interested in tea, food, nutrition, psychology and biology, and reading political books and novels.

Hi, Keemun. Your user name caught my attention because some of the best tea I ever had was Keemun Black bought at an oriental grocer here in Alabama in the mid 1980s. Well, anyway, welcome to Wrong Planet. :D

Welcome to WP, Keemun. I hope you like it here.

There are plenty of us here from the UK. Where are you from, may I ask?

I like reading political books too, and love my food. :)

Thanks for the welcome. I enjoy social forums, makes me feel less alone. I struggle with making friends and communicating with people face to face - it consumes a lot of energy. It is less mentally taxing writing things out on forums.

I forgot to mention that I am female.

I think many of us share the same struggles and that is why we've come to WP. :D I admit that I am "socially awkward"...I don't do well in face to face social settings especially with people that I don't know very well. I am fine with my family and my 2 close friends, but outside of that, I freeze up, am silent, can't think of anything to say, can't look at people and talk at the same time. I really want to be more social and have been trying...but it's so hard. I used to always brush my hair in front of my face and have my head down all the time. I've been working on simply having my head up and smiling....it's a work in progress. But I love online forums because "typing on a screen" is so much easier than talking face to face :tongue:
