    Plenty of help/support out there if you want it, just go see your GP. CBT can work wonders for some people, as can counselling and medication.

    I'm tired of feeling like a failure. I'm having a really hard time with my aspergers here in Rome. Every time I feel like I'm getting to know people they go and leave me behind or not include me or something else. And every time I don't know what's happened. In the movies the autistic people are always loved by everyone, as the cute/happy/lovable mascot. But no one likes me. What am I doing wrong? Why can't I just "get it?"

    Sorry to hear this, you know as well as I do though that those films are bullshit. I know it sounds hard but try not to take peoples actions personally, some people are just thoughtless.

    Aw I'm sorry. Working on adjusting meds? It's always rough til you find the right combo. But it's out there!
