I am an American, and have just started grad school in Hungary. I am so lonely right now, it hurts. My Asperger's always isolates me, and I would just like a friend. I throw a "smiling" mask on when in public, but I am crying myself to sleep every night. I am so tired of feeling like a freak (I am not saying that anyone else with asperger's is a freak, but that is how I am feeling about myself right now). It feels like I am drowning in the middle of an immense, but desolate ocean. There is nothing but water to the limits of my own eyesight in every direction. Am I the only one that feels this way?
