It is ok for you to do so, you have autism. The prevailing attitude I get is that it’s not ok for me. Yeah, you get that attitude from whom? Mom? What ever happened to your interest in moving out on your own, taking control of your Social Security income, and walking away from that job you hate? Yo...

Life can change like seasons and dreams.


I’ve been depressed for almost 15 years now. If change didn’t happen during these years, why would it ever come now?

Where did I say it's not okay to socialize? Of course it's okay to socialize. I'm just an advocate of switching the emphasis-----academics first, then socialization. But I believe many people, including NT's, would do better if academics is emphasized over socialization. I'll give you an example: B...

For me, when I was at uni everyone except me was expected to do social stuff though. And I was when it was MA. I'm not talking about super social or stupid stuff like hanging out and getting drunk. I mean group work. For my BA I didn't have to do it cos I'm autistic. I had to do essays on the exact...

How has your experience of problems you experienced during college been post graduation? I didn’t graduate college. I’ve dropped out multiple times and it will be for good now. Forget about being "social" when you go to college. When you study a subject you're interested in, the socializi...

I really wanted to one day post I finally got a girlfriend and to tell other Aspie men that there is hope. I just see agony and death in my future now. Why can’t suicide be easy?

I don’t ever want to go back to college. On one hand, I was told that it was going to be better than school was for me and I would even find a girlfriend there but I had no social success. On the other hand, I was told to just focus on studying and forget socializing because studying was supposed to...

I reported him to Skype but I can’t report anything to the chat room. They don’t have any sort of customer support. I actually saw some girls who said they were 15 log in because they wanted older men to talk dirty to them and no apparent mods or even the mod bot did a thing about them.

You’d think I would want to go back to college after this but I honestly do not. I am thinking of committing suicide instead.

Sorry about that. Don't stop trying. If one door closes another one might yet open.

I won't lock it just yet in case anyone still wishes to respond here while it's still open.


There are some who I wish would respond but they won’t. They hate me and wish only the worst for me.

I was hoping for a better start to this year but I didn’t get it. I already feel like the rest of the year is going to be bad. :(

I didn’t even get an interview. Someone else got interviewed and was hired on the spot partly because he/she (wasn’t told the sex of the person) had an university level college degree but I only found this out through my older brother and sister in-law having contacts within the city hall. Might as ...

The voice definitely didn’t come from the lady that was supposedly a teacher from Canada. I wonder if that should’ve been another warning sign, especially since a supposed teacher was doing sexual things on a webcam. The voice was most likely from someone overseas. I also found out that I am not eve...
