    I feel incredibly shy right now, although it’s a forum and I’m not personally meeting any of you. I have always felt like I didn’t belong anywhere. I am waiting for an official diagnosis, one friend of my mom who is a psychiatrist actually told us I was most likely on the spectrum but I guess I’ve managed to go around life... kinda...

    I am happy to join this forum and I already find so much relatable stuff in here that I’m about to cry.

    I like piano, physics, literature and fiction writing.

    By the way, that’s my first time ever being on a forum. I apologize in advance if I don’t know how to properly make this post.

    @Cailan Tangaroa You're doing fine, we're quite friendly on here and very supportive of each other, with the occasional rant from some people (myself included)

    Welcome to the forums!
    This was my first and only forum I have been with since my diagnosis over three years ago.
    There are so many different areas of interest. I check in every night.
    It's addictive!
