Hello! My name is Sarah. I'm 19 years old, and I was diagnosed with Asperger's at age 5. Growing up was tough for me. I never kept friends for long and I was socially inappropriate in elementary school especially so I quickly became that weird loner sitting in the corner who was bullied. I still have a hard time talking to people, but often it's because I'm shy since I've developed social anxiety as well or I simply don't know what to talk to people about...

Sometimes I get really lonely, and my entire social life has been online since I graduated high school in 2014. I found this website looking for somewhere I wouldn't be an outcast and others would be understanding and supportive, and able to relate to also. I hope that I make a lot of new friends here :)

How coincidental. I had a younger half-adopted half-sister (not official, but rather, a neighbouring family of whom we somewhat regarded one another like family) by the name of Sarah, and she was around the age of five at the time, and it would just so happen that I just happen to absolutely love imouto-chans ! <randomly adopts you as another imouto-chan & hugs you !> :D

That's kinda cool, and also hugs!! I like this forum already, nice to meet you. I apologize if I seem socially awkward though :P

Oh I live in Oregon so there's a lot of nature here. I enjoy hikes, swimming in rivers, and boating. Also sometimes just sitting outside and relaxing :)
