The mantra of an American in Britain: I'm ok… I'm ok… I'm ok…

As an American woman in Britain, I’m constantly saying in my own head – “I’m ok”.
Whenever I speak a little loudly and people turn to look at me like I’m a 10-car-pile-up — “I’m ok”
Whenever I walk up to someone, try to shake their hand, and they pause as if wondering if I’m contagious — “I’m ok”
Whenever I laugh loudly (or normally, as I would call it) at someone’s joke and they’re eyebrows twitch ever so slightly – “I’m ok”
I’m actually thinking of having a t-shirt made… anyone else want one?
