    Letting a friend go - help please

    Prefacing this by saying I know I sound like a jerk, but I can’t help that I just don’t want friends. My husband and immediate family are sufficient.

    Is this an autism thing or a me thing?

    From the beginning of the pandemic to now, except for all the stuff going on outside my home, which meant no more new episodes of shows I like, I am honestly pretty happy with the staying at home stuff. I felt/feel really relieved to not have to talk to strangers or go through the confusing and...

    Sound blocking suggestions?

    Hi, I am a recently diagnosed college student and I have just had to move back home because of the pandemic.

    Relationship Anxiety Issues

    I have always had issues with anxiety, but I know how to deal with it, generally speaking. When it comes to relationships, I just can't figure out how to cope!! I have a wonderful girlfriend right now. She knows I have high-functioning autism and works with me to make sure we are both happy. We...

    Is this a meltdown?

    Every now and then I wake up in the morning and I'm heavy and everything is difficult. Sometimes it happens after I worked really hard the day before, and sometimes I can't, for the life of me, pinpoint any reason whatsoever. This morning I woke up after a good 8.5 hrs of sleep. It was pretty...
