    First post for me as a new member to this site. I'm just going to jump in.I just want to run away! I know that will not change my life.

Also our youngest is mentally slow 20 and our middle daughter 24 and me 53(mom) are said to be normal. That's 6...

    My son was diagnosed with aspergers sydrome in October of 2016. I always said that I knew he was quirky, but to me that was all that mattered. I could handle whatever came up. Schools are not the same. I have always had a love hate relationship with schools. I want to help see them improve, but they are forever stuck in the 12th century..... Today we had a 504 meeting for my son. I just feel...

    Recently diagnosed

    New on here. I was recently assessed for Autism Spectrum Disorder after being referred during counselling for low mood / depression, anxiety and self harm. The diagnosis came back as Aspergers. I didn't know how to feel about this (ironically, I can see the irony in that). So I thought it could be good to seek out support for this.I have misophonia / hyperaucusis (disproportionate sensitivity to...

    Friendships

    Making and keeping a friend seems near impossible for me. Everytime I think I've found a friend I can be myself with the friendship ends. I seem to scare em off. My tendency to be needy/clingy and vulnerable I guess drives em away. 55 yrs of trying to make friends has worn me out. Doesn't seem worth it to me. Looks like that's my destiny, to be a hermit. Blowed if I can connect with people for...

    College life.

    1
    I started college in September and now I started my second semester earlier this month. I haven't made any friends at all because I'm scared that I'll pick on in college just like in high school again. I sort of feel like some people don't really like me already. Has anyone felt this way before?

    My partner has not spoken to me in two weeks. He has aspbergers so sometimes he gets overwhelmed and "hides" for a little while but he always comes back and we're able to talk it over and move on. But two weeks is an awful long time. I have checked in on him periodically reminding him I love him via text, which he reads and doesn't answer. I haven't gone to his house (which is like my second...

    Rumination.

    2
    I struggle with rumination. Even though I graduated from the school, I think about my bullying experiences everyday. Even though I started counseling a month ago (yesterday being my fifth appointment), I'm a little scared that I'll never get past my bullying experiences.

    My counselor suggested that I should join a website support group for people with Asperger's Syndrome. I've been having a hard time since 2016 with events that has happened to me, being bullied on my senior year of high school. As a result, I have to go to counseling, and I haven't made friends in college, with the exception of one person, but I've known her from my yoga class. Has anyone ever...

    Adult son now estranged

    I have a married 23 year old son who I am certain after years of being ground down (too many sad stories) is Aspbergers... I have not seen nor spoken to him in six months, and I fear he will never be back in our lives, as apparently we cause him anxiety. I would love a suggestion but I feel it's beyond hope

    My boyfriend has AS

    Hi! New to the group! My boyfriend has a mild case of AS (for which he has been professionally diagnosed). Although I would consider our relationship exceptionally healthy, it does have its challenges at times when it comes to the disorder.  I've noticed for some reason that it's more relevant when he is tired or sick. He becomes very quiet and difficult to communicate with. I am unable to tell...
