I got 20 on the first test, 24 on the second... I'd never really thought of it before, but I guess it does explain a lot. I can't stand a lot of the youth services I attend because the events are just so flashy and loud and overdone; I often need to leave the room a couple of times to unwind. (Actually, the first time I went to one of those things, when I was 14 and on medication which made the effect worse, I left enough times to make a security guard suspicious.) Touch is something I'm usually uncomfortable with, and my friends always poke fun at me for my reflexes... in fact, one of my classmates, who has a penchant for giving random hugs, tried to do so from behind, and before I knew what I was doing I ended up elbowing him sharply in the ribs.

I'm starting to think I should come with a warning label. On second thought, though, maybe I should bring this up with my T; he insists my aversion to touch is because of an intense need for it, which didn't entirely seem apt, but I didn't have any other idea when he suggested it.
