Hey there - my name is Eugene and I’m 16 - I’m looking for a friend, gender doesn’t matter, as long as I have someone who understands my struggles and is a true friend - I am rlly serious about this as I had
‘friends’ who backstabbed me and lied in my face and masked their true self and left me in the dust and nvr talked to me again - so I automatically became wary of making new friends due to my past unhappy experiences - I am part of a group of friends but I don’t rlly feel a proper connection w them as they don’t have those struggles that I do, regarding my Asperger’s, ADHD/ADD, OCD, Anxiety, Depression, and mild stammer. I’ve nvr rlly had a girl show interest in me either, and I chatted to one in my yr who had a jerk asshole bf and our friendship ended pre badly and have nvr talked since - I’m certain I’ll be a virgin forever and that I’m an ugly nobody - girls have gossipped about me in the past, calling me ‘disgusting’ and ‘weird’. And also, most of the guys in my yr group at school make hitting on girls so ez, and I feel that any girl is out of my league coz of those boyz status socially. I feel I don’t belong and I feel different, and that no one understands me - if someone, boy or girl doesn’t matter, is interested in contacting me, I would rlly appreciate it - however I don’t want a person who acts like my friend and acts the opposite - if u rlly are interested and feel the same way or can relate to it in a similar way, feel free to send me an email so we can chat - my gmail is - - looking forward to hearing from someone

Social rejection has devastating effects in many areas of functioning. Because the ASD child tends to internalize how others treat him, rejection damages self-esteem and often causes anxiety and depression. As the child feels worse about himself and becomes more anxious and depressed – he performs worse, socially and intellectually.

How to Prevent Meltdowns in Children on the Spectrum

Meltdowns are not a pretty sight. They are somewhat like overblown temper tantrums, but unlike tantrums, meltdowns can last anywhere from ten minutes to over an hour. When it starts, the Asperger's or HFA child is totally out-of-control. When it ends, both you and your child are totally exhausted. But... don’t breathe a sigh of relief yet. At the least provocation, for the remainder of that day -- and sometimes into the next - the meltdown can return in full force.

Parenting Defiant Teens on the Spectrum

Although Aspergers [high-functioning autism] is at the milder end of the autism spectrum, the challenges parents face when disciplining a teenager on the spectrum are more difficult than they would be with an average teen. Complicated by defiant behavior, the teen is at risk for even greater difficulties on multiple levels – unless the parents’ disciplinary techniques are tailored to their child's special needs.

Parenting Children and Teens with High-Functioning Autism

Two traits often found in kids with High-Functioning Autism are “mind-blindness” (i.e., the inability to predict the beliefs and intentions of others) and “alexithymia” (i.e., the inability to identify and interpret emotional signals in others). These two traits reduce the youngster’s ability to empathize with peers. As a result, he or she may be perceived by adults and other children as selfish, insensitive and uncaring.
