I'm lost

I was diagnosed with aspergers a few months ago but I've known I've had it for a while since reading about it in a magazine my I'm 26 years old now my parents could have done for me they just used to say I was an evil child and my Dad would hit me I ran away from home as soon as it was legal on my 16th Bithday I was let down by everyone because I didn't know what was wrong with me I didn't know I trusted people to easily because of the aspergers I just let people use me I ended up being a prostitute at 17 and taking drugs I was so unhappy always trying to please people and make people love me but they never did I tried to kill myself when I was 19 it didn't work I took so many drugs I'm lucky to be alive 4 years ago I got my dog and I love her so much and she loves me having her has saved my life I stopped taking drugs because I had to be alive to look after her and I have to keep myself healthy and happy so I can look after her well I did put on a lot of weight but I've lost it now by going swimming I've become obsessed with swimming though and it's really getting me down as I feel like I have to go swimming but everytime I go I get so anxious and there's always loads of people there that get in my way it's really getting me down then I think whats the point in even keeping my weight down anyway I love food and theres no point being slim it's not like I have anyone to go out with even though I have come a long way and I'm happier than I've ever been with my dog I still worry about things and let things get on top of me I wish I didn't have aspergers

Smile Re: I'm lost

Hi. I have aspergers too. The first thing i'd say is be thankful for your dog, and be sure to always have one. I was diagnosed just last March, so I'm no expert, but I'd say find a social group, a Toastmaster's group, a church, someplace where they actually seem to care. Lots of places don't really care. If swimming keeps you slim then myself i would not drop it, because being heavy has so many health problems. Consider yourself hugged.
