Hello everyone. Have just found this forum. I am a 33 year old male with AS living in Brighton. I have had a diagnosis for about 7-8 years but have always struggled to accept it. Depite having three degrees I am just about managing to hold down a (fairly menial) administrative job in a university in London. My life at the moment is a fairly dull and uninspiring; I am living at home with my parents, have very few friends and have never had a meaningful relationship with a girl. I have lots of interests: music, art, history, languages and so on but find it hard to communicate these to others.
I have come to a stage in my life where I feel that I have to acknowledge my condition, stop hiding from the world and start to live my life authentically. I have never known or even communicated with anyone else with AS/ASD before and am hoping that by making contact and sharing experiences with people here I can begin to feel less isolated and more at ease with myself and my condition.
