is this depression or is it connected to my AS
im recently diagnosed AS, it was a great relief to actually have a name for it as ive struggled all my life.
i joined a support forum and it was a life line in those periods when i just wanted to be alone and it helped me so mush to understand things.
ive always had a low self esteem even though im told im very attractive, i suffered a lot of unwanted attention both when out and at work, to the extent where i chose not to go out.
as i say the forum was great, but a week ago they were talking about putting pictures on, so i did. i had lots of comments and attention, however the same day i was blocked by the forum (its been resolved now, and it was an error which everyone was very sorry for), but during the few days it took to sort it out i paniced, i felt i couldnt cope with out it. id convinced my self it was my picture and again my self esteem just went to the floor. i felt alone, no one to talk to or confide in, i got anxious, depressed, and hated myself. im feeling a bit better now but havent been able to go back on there through fear really. is this part of my AS or would you say its just depression?
