    I Am Not Understood...

    I am not understood now, and have NEVER been understood by anyone other than me on the deepest level. I am just wondering how many people with Autism/Asperger's have the same problem... I finally came to a solution, which I will share later, but I want to know how many of you know you are not...

    Preferring to be alone?

    Hello everyone, I was wondering how common it is for people on the spectrum to prefer to be alone. At least, most of the time. I have Asperger's and ever since I was little, I've been quite content hanging out alone, in my own world. I've always spent a lot of time on the computer. However, I...

    Dealing with scares when home alone

    Okay, so this is one I've been through a few times. I'm home alone for a few days every now and then. Usually when the others head up to the lake house for a couple of days... if I dont feel like going with, I'm stuck here at the main house till they get back. Most of the time, I'm fine. But...

    nearly 50, just so quiet and alone

    AS usual, I've come here with lots of thought and feelings spinning through me. Then wasn't sure where to post, or even what I wanted from posting. I think I'm used to writing this kind of thing in my diary, but as I've now found some understanding and supportive people, thought I would open it...

    I feel alone, even among other autistics.

    I've never really been involved with autistic related communties before. This forum is the only exception. I've felt kinda different from other autistics. Despite being officically diagnosed with HFA twice, I've felt different from the others with HFA and I one point questioned if it was even...

    Age related social changes

    Anyine have a nice circle of friends that suddenly fall away? I had a nice circle of friends age 18-45.Then they all fell away. It was legitiment reasons caused by life, not rejection. Most had kids that had more extra curriculum from school. After that I never found another group.

    Forming and maintaining friendships

    In the past year or so I have started to attempt to form connections with others. I have formed some friendships with some people, but honestly it is so exhasting. And the deeper the connection that I feel for a person, the more I rely on their company. I get terrified of making people angry...

    Sanctioned for Being Single or Alone

    Society seems to expect people to have a partner or to be with their family, if not they at least expect people to be with friends. In fact it often hurts people financially to be single or alone, but worse sometimes single people can looked down upon or even sanctioned against which pretty...

    Hello everyone, I'm Crystal! I believe I have Aspergers. I am not yet diagnosed but have an appointment with my family doctor on Tuesday to speak to him about wanting to get tested. It wasn't until recently that I learned about Aspergers. As I read and learn more about Asperger in a way I feel...

    Not sure why I'm so mixed in this aspect...

    It's weird. Sometimes I just want to be left alone, while at other times I'm the one who cannot leave people alone . Moreover, this often depends on the person. If these people are my friends - the very few ones I managed to make - I cling to them like a moth to a flame. I cannot let go of...

    How would you prepare for moving from state to state alone? (US)

    I don't plan on moving anytime soon. I plan to move when I finish my education in college. I am currently 19. I live in Alabama as of 2017. I lived in Alabama my whole life, and it has not been good to me. My family is 'different' when it comes to how life is like here in the south. We don't go...

    Scary Random Confessions Of 'M.G.'

    This is wrong. There is no way that this should be acceptable. So much noise here. Every room is invasive. He wants drugging and locking up. He wants torturing as long as it doesn't make noise. This situation is untenable. Exploitation. Living in the crumbling castle of someone else's design. My...
