I'm feeling really alone lately and I don't know what to do about it. I rarely leave my house and the idea of going out and meeting new people scares the crap out of me but I hate sitting here not having anyone to talk to either. I don't get my official Asperger's testing for about another month but I'm positive I have it, I just can't get any counseling or help until I have that test. I'm hoping that will help me get my mind right so I can get a friend or two. A girlfriend might be too much to hope for.

I don't know, I just needed to vent.

Welcome to the Forum.

I used to watch "Gomer Pyle, USMC" when I was a kid.

The name comes from that, but not directly. I look like the character in the movie Full Metal Jacket that was called Private Pyle. Of course, his name came from Gomer Pyle.
