    Hello, my name is Lulu. I'm here because I suspect I have asperger's (awaiting official diagnosis), and I am seeking an outlet where I can truly be myself (at the behest of my family, I've been hiding who I truly am my entire life).

    You are so accurate. We do feel like we hide and then l feel guilty and beat myself up for that. Thanks for sharing.
    Welcome to the club. Hot coffee and donuts served after 9:00 in the blue virtual lobby.

    Hi and welcome. This thing about coffee and doughnuts isn't true, btw, I have often looked for them, but they aren't available. But there is food for thought here...

    Hello Lulu & welcome-- Yes, there are other Christians here! This is a pretty diverse website so lots of room for Christianity. I'm Catholic.

    Glad you're here. This is probably the most accepting place on the internet.

    Oh I'm not Christian though I am Messianic, so you'll probably see me in Christian threads as there are similarities.

    Thank you for the warm welcome!
