    That old familiar feeling...

    No matter what I do, no matter what I try, I feel so alone. I hate it. I want to not hate it. I want to be, "strong and independent," and I want people to see me that way. Unfortunately, I feel like a weirdo/alien/robot, watching people around me have normal lives, normal relationships, and...

    Only obese person.

    I am the only obese person at my church groups. Everyone else is slim and active. I tried to lose weight but it's impossible. I use to enjoy to go for walks until now I suffer from maskaphobia it makes it almost impossible too. I have no room for a treadmill and I tried some home exercises but...

    My Aspie Man

    I am at my wit;s end, please at least listen and hopefully understand. I am a disabled woman who is virtually housebound, I can only get out with the help of my aspie partner. When I am at home I am limited in what I can do physically because of my disablements so I am only able to do stuff...

    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...

    Adapting to being single for life

    Following my very long first thread here about being single/virgin at almost age 30 (my 30th birthday is this Thursday), I was wondering about choosing to resign myself to be single for life. It is another path, but I was thinking about how I have a lot of quirks and difficulties that would make...

    Confused and stressed out

    I just returned home (today) from a week-long visit with my husbands family. (Baton Rouge) My husband and I have been together almost 5 years total. A smart, creative bunch. I truly enjoy spending time with them. We live quite a ways away. I paid close attention this visit to my husbands...

    Ramblings of a Galactic Hitch-Hiker

    Basically, this is just me, a man diagnosed with ASD and MDD, rambling about whatever comes to my mind, whenever I feel like it.

    I work the opposite shift as my fiancé and my friends are busy when I’m in need of them most. I don’t want to be lonely anymore. It hurts. It makes me feel paralyzed.

    Crying with the city lights

    Tonight I feel lonely. I'm out here in my balcony, with a stunning view of the city at night. Usually I would have enjoyed it. But tonight I feel so lonely. I love being alone, when I want to be alone. That is a lot more frequent than it is for most people. I like to write, read, travel, eat...

    Newbie who has lost his way..

    I'm new on this site, as a matter of fact Im kinda new to forums in general, yes I'm a very out of touch millennial. Ive always been kind of skeptical of online communities for a variety of reasons, although Im more or less a social phobic in general. Ive come here because I lack a sufficient...

    Hi, I’m new

    I was diagnosed with Asperger’s two days ago and I feel lost and more depressed than usual. I am 16 years old and I never knew I had autism. I just can’t believe I went my whole life without knowing. Now that I look back on my life, my family and I should have known I have autism. There were...
