It's Been A LONG Time

Post by rpgdancer on Mon Jul 15, 2013 12:12 am

my family was always concerned about the amount of time I spent online and the amount of time I spent discussing my "friends" (their quotes not mine) Dawn, Trista, Unit, Rex, and the like. They thought I was spending too much of my time trying to make friends with people that I'd never meet and that I needed to get a life... well, i tried that and it didn't work...

i moved halfway across the country for a job that I lost after 90 days. I've attempted to be social and failed. Late last year, at the ripe old age of 22, I was finally diagnosed with Aspergers (high functioning autism). I'd always known I was different, but never knew why. now i know why i felt so safe with all of you; no one knew who i really was. i was free to be me and if you didn't like me, i could just click the ignore button. i didn't stress over every single conversation attempt. i didn't feel awkward all the time.

Now, I need my family again. my dad's in kidney failure and i'm stuck halfway across the country working three retail jobs. I figured I have to start somewhere... so this is me.

Please be there for me again as you were through all the good and bad times in the past.

Welcome back! Stick around, will ya? It is important to have people in your life that you can socialize with in person, but online buddies aren't terrible. My boyfriend and I met our closest, now "real life" friends on the internet; through car forums and Facebook groups.

Aspergers-shmashpergers. You are who you are. Don't ever let a diagnosis hold you back from anything you want to do. You're not a social butterfly. So? Me neither. I hate people lmao. The only time I ever get out and do things with people other than just my boyfriend or family are at car shows/gatherings about once a month during the summer. In the winter, we're straight up hermits. We go to work and come home, and there's nothing wrong with that. We're happy, that's all that matters. Don't worry about trying to be normal, shape your life the way you want it; do what makes you happy. Don't stress over things you have little to no control over.

I'm sorry about your dad. I hope he's able to find a donor soon. Sad

Welcome back!

I definitely know what you're going though, at least with the parents not liking you being online so much and having so many online friends... My grandma was the same. In fact, if she knew I had as many as I do, she'd probably be rolling in her grave worrying that I'm gonna get myself murdered or something.... She had a very negative "Trust no one!" thing about her...
I've made some of the best friends I've ever had online, even met a few of them in person, and I don't regret it at all. I kind of do regret falling in a mutual love with one of them who lives in the UK because that would never work, with our lack of money.
