Hi I'm new to this so I don't no if I'm doing it right. I'm being tested for autism and anxiety but I do suffer from depression. I'm 30 years old. Not getting though things as I use to. Iv just split up from my partner of 8 years but there starting to move on and she's looking after her sisters kids which Iv know and helped with since birth. Iv heard that she's met someone but I can't seem to move on, feel like I want to give up on them but that's what I don't want to do. Can't help what's going on in my head, losing sleep. Can someone talk to me. X
Hello, I’m sorry to hear of your distress. Break-ups are difficult for most people and perhaps more so for those on the spectrum due to the sudden change in circumstance and different environment. One way I find useful when in a troublesome situation that involves other people, is to imagine that I am reading a novel or an article about characters in the same position. It may even help to write down a short story describing the experience from everyone’s point of view. Try to be as objective as possible. This will enable you to take one step away and assist you in deciding the appropriate way to proceed. Remember that - unless some sort of persecution or intimidation has been involved - affairs of the heart should not be subject to judgement.
I hope you find yourself in a more harmonious state of mind soon. Graham.
