I am a 30 yr old female who has high functioning autism. I have trouble making friends. I would like to meet people who are in the same situation as I am. I would like to know how other people deal with autism on a day to day basis. I would also like some advice on how to go about meeting new people.
With regards meeting new people, would a site like Autism Connect (https://autism-connect.org.uk/) be of use?
It would be worth checking (http://www.autism.org.uk/services/local.aspx) to see if NAS has a branch local to you.
You could also try checking this web page:http://www.autismlinks.co.uk/support-groups/
I also have trouble making new friends and so cannot provide any further advice on how to meet new people.
I try to deal with autism on a day by day basis by, in part, trying to do what comes natural to me rather than trying to conform to the societal 'normal'. Frankly, I exist and that is hard enough.
thanks for the websites.
