i really strongly dislike pop chart now music i just think its total rubish.
iam making a few friends on facebook right now.(from my old school) it keeps me soically healthy.
i just hate school right now its so... uch i cant explain
well this is what i like and things thanks for reading for who ever read my discussion, thanks.
You sound like a lovely person. I have a son aged 21 with Aspergers and your views remind me of his in lots of ways - I like chart music, he looks down on me for it!
He hated school too, he said he spent the entire time trying to keep his head down and not attract attention to himself. Do you go to mainstream school?
Maybe you should look at the online magazine on the site, there's some penpal ads in there and you may be able to write to people of a similar age.
iam not sure if its mainstream but its like an normal school that has a support center for people that have asbergers. i just started two days ago its the weekend now so iam watching films, listing to my favourite music and drawing ect. in my school one time they played pop chart music very loud and everyone was talking very loud (had a panic attack) i was very upset and i felt trapped i can only explain like my phycological dilemma (it was horrible).
thats funny coz i feel the same way about my mum about her choice of music but my mum doesnt like all of the chart pop she likes coldplay(which i dont mind) musicians like prince she really likes.
i will look into that magazine ;) thanks.
I just love your interests and it was very interesting to see autistic actors and directors etc.
I like similar music to you.
I hated school i didnt fit in. i was picked on. i felt trapped.
I dislike modern pop music also
It's lovely to hear from such an enthusiastic young person, I wonder if you still use this service?
I am 25 years old and I like Acting too but atm I am struggling with Level 1 Art and Design at college.
I have got GCSEs and a Level 2 but I was in a hospital for 2 and 1/2 years,
pretty long story but when I was your age I never knew I had Aspergers.
I would like you to know that you are very lucky for going to the school you went to
and knowing that you have Aspergers at such a young age.
It is difficult for me to make friends with other people in general but since I've been volunteering
for Autistic Charities in my spare time I have made some out there in the "real world".
Neurotypical people usually treat me awful at college.
If you are in your late teens/the twenties now then volunteering might be something you decide to get involved in yourself.
