Asperger's in Cornwall

Recommended Posts

Good morning.  I'm new to the forum.  


I live in Cornwall and have discovered that I had more options for help prior to an Asperger diagnosis than after said diagnosis.  I'm over forty and was diagnosed nearly two years ago.  I went to my GP last August as I was having problems coping day-to-day; anxiety and depression.  I have poor eye contact, like most of us, and my GP kept looking around behind him everytime I lost contact which became unsettling.  I stated that I'm having problems processing stuff and he just stated 'we all process stuff'.  The best he could offer was 'Blue Therapy'.  Apparently, as a person who is anxious and doesn't socialise much I should go out into the wilds and exercise near water...

I then contacted an organisation in Truro who I was advised to contact for advice.  They informed me that they can't help me.  Apparently If I was a parent of or a child with autism then I'd have more options.  


Does anyone else have similar problems?  I get frustrated that as an adult with Asperger's there's basically no help at all.
