    My son is ten, he doesn't have an asd diagnosis. The regional center said although he has almost all the characteristics he's too animated in his gestures and facial expressions. But I know several therapists who think the regional center is nuts. Plus I was an aide so he has had lots of early intervention. Anyway they gave him five mental health diagnosis instead. But in my heart I believe this...

    My wife wants to leave and I am terrified

    1
    I was diagnosed with Aspergers/Autism Spectrum Disorder two months ago, and it's honestly been a difficult transition. I'm finding myself reevaluating pretty much everything. I'm 36, successful at my job, and almost always in a good mood, but I realize that my wife has been bearing a great burden during this whole time. She's used the word "abuse"—and talks often about how she hates my tone of...

    I could use some helpful advice

    Hello. I have had what my mother and I suspect to be aspergers syndrome my entire life. I've always had major anxiety and problems getting ahead in life. I have major meltdowns about twice a week(give or take) from depression. I always feel like I'm being judged by people even when I'm not. I have a anxiety and fear of the unknown. Even just going to a restruant to eat can be overwhelming and 70%...

    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...

    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. I know that when I start thinking about going somewhere I'm usually on over load. I have a husband 64, a son 29 and a daughter 27 with Aspergers. Also our youngest is mentally slow 20 and our middle daughter 24 and me 53(mom) are said to be normal. That's 6...

    College life.

    2
    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?

    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...

    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
