If it helps, feeling like you don't belong is kinda like how all of us feel. That's why I was happy to find out I have AS because now I know that I'm not alone in feeling that way.

We can all not belong together.

I know that sounds kind of harsh, but it made me feel better.

I wonder how NeantHumain feels with his self-acquired French accent?

That's how I feel. I've felt more British than Canadian my whole entire life. This is inspiring me to make T-shirts that say, I was born in ____________, but I feel ____________. I'll be asking people around the clubhouse, what country they're crazy about, and making personal T-shirts, for them.

I wonder; if I were to move to another country - what nation would those people then think I'm from?

Oh, and Felinity - if you're thinking about moving to Australia; degrees in medicine or technology would be what you'd need most, of course it all depends on what city in what state.

Y'know.... other countries aren't going to make you feel any more welcome.



I feel like a foreigner in my own country NOT thanks to being Aspergian so much as London being so full of actual foreigners and their whole freaking families that I'm not sure where I really am half the time.
If this is still England then why are there so many freakin Bangladeshis? One or three I can handle... but there are thousands of them... ;_;

SotiCoto, dude, who cares where someone's from? You sounded seriously xenophobic there.
