Hi, I’ve heard that I will be affected by the Bedroom tax which is coming in April because I have two bedrooms, one of which is a box room you can't swing a cat in. Now I believe the over 60s wont be affected by this even if they live in a 3/4 bedroom house so I was wondering if there are any circumstance where I could be exempt. I've lived in my current flat since 2003 and got to know a few people, moving would leave me isolated too
I have grown to appreciate the benefits of asperger syndrome throughout my life. But I still feel misunderstood by nearly everyone, especially people at school. I have made a lot more friends than had in year 7 three years ago, but even they give me funny looks all the time. Whenever people in my year or class walk past me I catch them casting blank looks in my direction. I admit my action in school differ a lot from theirs and I am basically the only one who draws or reads in my spare time. Yet despite this I still feel isolated from them, like I am from another world. The teachers know of my condition and support me, but the students would see me as an attention-seeker if I tried to explain that I had autism. I am not used to expressing myself to people like this and this is my first post on the ASD forum. Thank You
