adult high functioning autistic

hi all

i'm completely new to this site. but decided to join some sort of online autism community today, to try and find people who are a bit more like me. i feel extremely alone and alien and im just looking for some frienly conversation. i have high functioning autism and it's only recently been diagnosed at a psychiatric hospital. it helps to know what it is, but it doesnt help me feel more 'normal' in the ways that i would like to. e.g. socially, freaky public meltdowns etc. i'm 25 year old female artistic personality.

I don't know where you live but there is a very active adult support group for Asperger's syndrome (high functioning autism) in NYC called G.R.A.S.P.

Re: adult high functioning autistic

Hi! I am married to a sweet man who was diagnosed with autism as an adult...35-year-old adult mind you! We are going on ten years of marriage, I loved him in spite of what ever it was that made him so different, four years into our marriage he was diagnosed with autism active.

I'm new here, I am a born again child of God. Both my husband and I are disabled. My husband has an anxiety disorder, a personality disorder and he is Autistic, I had a near fatal car accident November 20th, 1998! I was given 5-minutes to live they said if I did live I would be a vegetable...they had the wrong food group! I'm a FRUIT! My Heavenly Daddy was not done with me yet...he wanted me to marry my sweet dear autistic husband, Brian.

My sweet dear autistic husband and I have been married for going on ten years!

Everything bad imaginable has happened to me as a little girl...I've been tortured, starved and abused in EVERY other way. My first marriage was very abusive, I became an alcoholic and addicted to gambling.

Thanks everyone!
In Christian Love,
Bertha Marie
