I feel you.

I wasn’t diagnosed either. I had to diagnose myself in my early 30’s. Then I finally got an official one.

We have to work with what we’ve got no matter the age. Some in their 50’s or so think it’s too late for them. In my opinion, it is never ever too late. Time on earth is precious.

I can’t stop learning about it. I’m always thirsty for more information. The thirst is never quenched. For hours every day I read up on it and I’m just increasingly fascinated by the condition and the more I learn about it, the more I value its uniqueness. The beauty of it. But the hardship is very...

I know what it’s like to be utterly stuck. When you scramble and feel desperate for answers, they do indeed come. At some point. When you want it enough and live life enough, it can happen. It’s a process one has to be very patient with. Find as much meaning as you can along the way.

I’d say to just try to focus on your body mind and self as a whole and see where improvements can be made and spread any kind of healing thoughts there and embrace any strengths inside of you. See what can change, transform, or rid of anything unnecessary. Sorry you’re struggling. We all have our da...

Being a weirdo isn’t always necessarily bad. You just have to make sure to not say anything too off putting or offensive. As long as you seem genuine and well-intentioned. If you act confident (without appearing conceited) and find a way to really “own it” as far as weirdness goes, it could turn out...

That’s all really helpful so far. Appreciate it!

I’m still working on not letting any kind of judgment get to me. I’m always told “Stop caring what others think”. I try. Always tried. But is that actually bad advice for an aspie/autistic? I mean it’s good advice but I don’t know.

How did it feel? I was judged by a few others. They were the very higher functioning ones. I would’ve thought they’d be more accepting because they have the same condition as me. It felt worse than being judged by a neurotypical. I think they already know I’m trying my very hardest to mask/act neuro...

I had 0 friends in the five years I attended college. Those were some of the worst years of my life. Please do all you can to do better than me (and perhaps some others). I was too scared to talk. That was a barrier. Another one was that I struggled with learning so I didn’t have much to contribute ...

Valuable. Even though nobody can see it and tend to treat me as subhuman. And every day is a big hardship. But I believe the world needs a lot of different kinds of minds. That’s what keeps me going. Despite all the discrimination I continue to face. I think humanity needs to change in a lot of ways...

I could use advice, suggestions and support. I’m a massage therapist. Massage is my special interest and I’m talented. I get a lot of respect at work for it. I might have something like savant syndrome. Been at my job for 6 months. I was diagnosed very late with autism (31) and I honestly haven’t pr...

I’ve been with my bf a year and a half. He says I just don’t always show enough emotions and that I just seem kind of robotic. He doesn’t know how to explain it but he sort of feels like it “wouldn’t matter” if he stayed or left. I wonder if I’m really destined to be alone if every relationship part...

How do I understand the world? To the neurotypical, despite a few confusing moments here and there, it makes sense for the most part. To me, it is vastly complicated and I am very slow to learn. Not to mention forgetful. How am I supposed to understand the world? I am often stressed, anxious, overwh...
