I am a youngish woman. I have struggled with friendship my entire life, and that is not a hyperbole. Right now, I am very alone. I moved from my home town almost two years ago, and have failed to make friends, failed to maintain my romantic relationship, and even failing at my job. It feels...

One great result that came from getting my anxiety under control is that now I'm willing to approach new experiences. From each of these experiences I'm able to learn and do better each time afterwards, which is how I'm getting better at job interviews. The frustrating part about this is...

Whenever I was faced with exploring new territory such as: meeting new people, going to a new part of town, learning to drive, etc. I felt like just avoiding these new experiences altogether, but I knew I couldn't if I wanted my life to go somewhere. Since these were new things in my life I...

Things are getting very stressful, but not for any of the normal reasons. It's finals month. Finals are normal, we have them every year and around the same time for semester long class sections. I study, but I don't think it's as stressful for me because of my memory. It's not perfect, but I...

I wrote my last blog post here four years ago. At that time, I was working on myself, improving, and exploring new opportunities in my life, and I reached the personal conclusion that I was likely not actually on the spectrum. Four weird years later--yeah, I'm on the spectrum. At the time, I...

Two and a half years ago I joined this website. Back then I was depressed and angry because of the fallout after high school. I joined this website because I have Asperger's and wanted to know that I am not the only one out there who has problems. Life was tough after high school but now things...
I’m exhausted. I’m drained all the time. I’m really struggling to hold it together. The evenings are the hardest times for me. I can’t run away any longer, so I’m stuck wide awake with only myself for company. I don’t know how to cope with this. I’m so tense, and my fear of relaxing coupled with...
My day started slowly. I couldn't get out of bed until 9 a.m., until I got a call from my mom and dad who are on holiday in Asia. It cheered me up to see them. I was watching some DIY decor and DIY thrift store clothing upgrade videos on YouTube by the channel TheSorryGirls (I very much...
I'm having a particularly difficult day today. I'm sorry I keep coming and going from these forums... I just have been going through these phases lately where I'm not social at all, anywhere, don't even crack open my laptop. And then sometimes I hyperfocus on a particular group or something...

I've been really depressed and emotional lately, due to a multitude of factors. It's hard to define them all here, but I'll try: - working on CPTSD recovery, which involves a lot of wading around in traumatic memories - getting constantly triggered on accident by my boyfriend - getting sensory...

I'm sick of having all my hopes and ambitions dismissed, because nobody else wants to do that. I don't want to talk about memes all day everyday, i don't find that stuff funny all the damn time. I don't want to follow, i am sick of having peer pressure put on me. When now i just naturally resist...

And... I had another meltdown yesterday. Sigh. I'm obviously still recovering from the trauma. At first, I couldn't understand why I was falling apart when everything was okay. For some reason, my brain wants to keep screaming everything is NOT okay and that I need to run away. It keeps picking...

Busy week this week, went food shopping to Tesco on Monday and bought stuff I needed, and then on Tuesday afternoon we stayed in because it was raining. Wednesday morning I went for a meeting at College with a view to packing in the maths course, but they persuaded me to stay on, I'm possibly...
