Just finally accepted I have Autism (always blamed my past on my personality). I hate to admit it, but I've always despised autism and autistic people until finally accepting myself. Masking, blending in, and psychology would be considered my "special interest" i guess. I've come to realize that a lonely stoic life just isn't worth it :| and am finally hoping to reach out and build some relationships with other people like me :D. If anyone else has had similar experiences with self hatred or social troubles I would love to hear your stories, feel free to reach out. Thank you!

Hello and welcome. I assume you've come around on being more welcoming of those on the spectrum :)

Welcome to Wrong Planet

Similar experiences! I went through 3 years of shear torture by fellow students in 6-8 grade. They almost killed me, physically killed me. But I survived and grew. You can believe in yourself.
