Name: Courtney

Age: 22

Location: Midwest, USA

Diagnosis: I’ve been recently diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.  Before that I have been formally diagnosed with several things including panic disorder with agoraphobia, social anxiety, ADHD, and OCD.  Depending on who you ask, I also have bipolar disorder (my psychiatrist) or depression (my psychologist).

Interests/Hobbies:  Animals, pets (dogs, reptiles, parrots, and small pets) photography, most fields of science, TV and movies, reading (mainly nonfiction)

Music: Classic rock, classical, and movie soundtracks

TV Shows/Movies: there are a lot!  TV shows include Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Supernatural, etc. There are too many movies to count but Pirates of the Caribbean has always been my favorite, I love all the super hero movies, Harry Potter, etc.

What are you looking for in a pen pal?:  Honestly I’m not very great at making friends when face to face conversation is involved, but I would love to know some people that may share one or more of my diagnoses that would understand and also offer support to someone else.  Like I said, I’m not great at face to face conversation but becoming friends on tumblr or writing letters back and forth, email, etc. would be great!  Age or gender is not important
