I feel like it’s time for me to disappear. I am slowly but surely becoming excommunicated from the autism community. Jun 19, 2021 at 12:00 PM

      Others tell me I am mentally unstable. Try living with an emotionally and physically abusive family before you judge me.

        You're going to have to come up with a better pick-up line than that.
        How about,
        "You should be grateful that I haven't punched you, yet?"

        Are you familiar with the phrase,
        "Shooting yourself in the foot?"

        You need to relax. That may not be an aggressive approach, but (on the plus side) it is less repulsive. (And it will take some time to undo the damage that you are currently doing. Or don't)

      If I had a girlfriend, I would be so much happier and my brain wouldn’t be malfunctioning from neural pathway blocks.

        I know many people with depression, and there's a definite pattern to mental health issues complicating relationships. You have to be willing to work on your own happiness - not dump all your problems at someone else's door and think it'll fix you. It won't.

        Maybe it's well meant but you have to remember that that is your life, what worked and didn't work for you doesn't have to to be the case for him , it's really invalidating when you go up to someone and say: "well ur just depressed so it's all in your head". If anything you could be overgeneralizing yourself.

        Not having any hope for romantic relationships is a very legit reason to feel depressed and frustrated, I am going to leave it at that.

        More over-generalisation. Just because you get a handful of negative comments doesn't mean the entire population of the world dislikes you.

      I found out a lady I was interested in already has a boyfriend. This life is getting unbearable for me. It’s not a journey but torture.

        That's a common retort. Chris Chandler called it the "infinitely high boyfriend factor". Where I live asking a woman out is considered an insult, so I hardly ever see it, but the boyfriend thing is what women say to get a guy to buzz off.

        I've had things like this & the way I deal with it is, if I like the girl, I want her to be absolutely living her best life. So if she's already found a guy she likes, awesome! Usually I end up seeing the boyfriend too & a lot of times they're a cute couple--all the world loves a lover so I like seeing everyone happy-

      I don’t understand it when people tell me “Work on yourself!” or “Improve yourself!”. Both things sound so vague and unclear to me.

        If they know you, and see that you're suffering from depression - they're trying to offer general advice. Dedicating more time to self help, than spending more time focusing on thoughts that continue to amplify your depression and other negative emotions. As with many things in life - the more time you spend dedicated to something, the better you become at it. Depression is no different.

        If a NT sees that somebody is "down" or depressed, they want to help, but usually they don't know how. But they still want the person to know they care, so they fall back on generic platitudes. They're not really giving real advice per se but just want to let a person know they care. NT's really didn't have a socially acceptable direct way of saying it until the mid 90s and "I feel your pain".

        A lot of times people don't catch anything. It has more to do with the water temperature and the fish than you.

        Call the suicide prevention hotline, the number is in the sticky posts in Help and Support. You can always talk to us, but we are not licensed intervention counselors. If there is a regional hotline where you live (most major cities have one) you can call them.
