I am Paul
I was diagnosed with mild autism (we no longer call it aspergers) last year but I have had no offers of help or advice since and I am struggling a bit.
Living alone isnt helping, I am making stupid decisions and I'm getting more and more anxious and time goes on. Being anti social really doesnt help either, I'm hiding away and making my life quite a struggle.
Not sure what I am hoping for out of this but I gotta try something.
bye for now
Hi and welcome,
What things do you struggle with? What would you like help with? What would you like advice about?
I struggle with real life I guess, I just dont really know what to do anymore
hello and welcome!
What exactly is it that you are struggling with or need help with? It's very hard for anybody to help if they don't know what help you're looking for.
You may like to contact our Autism Helpline team who can talk with you about information and advice . You can contact the team via telephone on 0808 800 4104 (Monday to Thursday 10am to 4pm, Friday 9am to 3pm). Please note that the Helpline is experiencing a high volume of calls and it may take a couple of attempts before you get through to speak to an advisor. Alternatively, should you prefer to send a message, you can do so via their webform:

Sorry to hear you are struggling. I also was diagnosed with Aspergers, and I wouldn’t even call this ‘Mild autism’ as you referred to it, as it can be a real struggle as you are finding. I now refer to myself as being austistic. Firstly, do you have a job or any special interests? I volunteer in an area I have a great interest in , and this helps with socialising, as I am with people who are interested in the same things as me. Also online communities in any interests you have can be a way to socialise.
Also I know it can be hard to put into words where you feel your struggles are, and this is because of your autism.
Hope this helps.
