Hello all,

My name is Isabella. I'm from RI. I was diagnosed with aspbergers last year and already belong to a support group, but our group is rather small and I am looking to get to know a wider circle of people with this syndrome. I'm 32 and single, no children, unless you count my two kitties :) I live at home with my mother. I'm trying to persue a career as a writer, but not having much luck so far. My main interests are reading, writing, drawing, anime, playing online games, cross-stitching and walking. I'm sorry to say I don't get out much, as I don't drive and have no friends outside of my apartment building. I find it difficult to even socialize with people online. Maybe talking with others who understand the way I am will help me broaden my horizons, as it were.

Anyway, looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi,
I am a woman from Rhode Island also. What groups are there around here. This is such a small state.

I hope you find a home here. :D
