    intense bullying?

    did anyone else get bullied extremely bad? I have been a social outcast my entire life and only after starting work at one of those "rehab"-esque workplaces that have diagnosed kids, troubled gang-member kids, and kids who have no grades at all.

    (SERIOUS) Expelled from School?

    Hello, I don't know where to start but I took a month of holidays from school, and meanwhile, the people who bullied me spread so much rumors about me and when I went back, they all did a rude welcome to me and were taunting and looking at me weirdly, and thought I would poke them with my pen...

    Does anyone else feel like that they were put on this planet just to be laughed at?

    Sorry if this isn't the right place, I tried to find a "vent" sub-forum but couldn't see one, sorry if I have missed it by accident. I think the title describes this well. I'm in my early 20s, and I'm so tired of being laughed at and being the butt of the joke because I don't fit in because I'm...

    Aspergers Woman & Predators

    First, before I discuss my perspective regarding women, let me acknowledge that those who present differently seem to have a hardship of attracting bullies, be they male or female. I understand this has happened to many who are on the spectrum. Bullying, in elementary school, always struck me...

    I was semi-active on this site a long while ago for about six months (late 2016-early 2017), which was from the time I was diagnosed with Asperger's until I started my first job back in the working world post-diagnosis. Then I dropped out. What happened after that? That's what the book is about...

    Remembering years of bullying.

    Lately I've been having flashbacks of the days when I got bullied in school. They range from the typical teasing, to having things thrown at me, gossiped about, falsely accused of vandalism, being called mentally challenged, 'roasted' by the entire classroom when I had done nothing wrong or...

I feel very sad... and also...

    Fear and Outcomes

    Howdy guys, Austin here. Quick question: Does anyone else feel as if fear is holding you back from doing great things? I sure do. But here's the thing, I'm not really afraid of doing it per say, I'm really afraid of the outcome if things go sour. For example, let's say if I go up to a really...

    Was your social anxiety with you since birth?

    Did you experience social anxiety for as long as you can remember, or did it first become a problem and/or gradually get worse as you grew up and had bad experiences? As a kid I wasn't very anxious at all. I was awkward socially but I didn't really fear other people to the extent I did later...
