Like the title says, I use to be a member in my teens, and found the forum very comforting as I knew no one else in my life that was dealing with what I was dealing with. But then my brain / depression did a weird thing where I didn't want to outwardly express my thoughts anymore so I stopped posting / reading on forums online and either abandoned or outright deleted all my online accounts (Rip my old roleplay group buddies that probably thought I dropped off the face of the earth).

I'm  now in my mid 20's

I for the most part finally have my depression and anxiety under control now, and have managed to move out on my own and hold down a decent job for the last few years. But I still feel alone in my community. I have yet to meet another high functioning autistic person (other then one of my supervisors, but she's 25+ years older then me and... kind of condescending? Like I'm some how living with Autism wrong in her mind. Idk.)

Sorry for rambling. The main point of all this is I'm lonely, and I only just today remembered how much I use to love Wrong Planet. So I'm back, and hoping to find other people who understand what I've been going through my all my life.

So hi, I'm Jay. Happy to be back.

Hi and welcome back, Jay :). I loved having my own place in my late teens and I hope you find comfort in WP and the good people found here. That’s so good that the depression/anxiety you previously knew, are now under control.

It would have been great if there was a WrongPlanet when I was in my teens. I was a teen in the 70s.

Welcome back! I always like seeing when people decide to return to WP...it reinforces my good opinion of it.

But, even though I am also a High Functioning Autistic, I'm pretty sure our experiences are different. I'm 40 years older than you and I was only diagnosed at age 64! But, I'm glad things seem to be going well for you!
