Hi there. I am Joshua, 28 years old, from the netherlands and half a year ago, i started living on my own, i feel really lonely because i am too afraid of getting out of the house.. I have help / coaching, they will help me find a place surrounded by others.. But since then i need to wait till we find a good place.. i feel like i'm getting more and more sad how my life has become so empty... it's weekend again and nowhere to go. wish i had friends. well i do but i'm avoiding them also.. I am terrified and did a few suicide attempts, but i need to stay strong now.. I just want a happy social life and have a job or a study and everything.. I compare myself to others also a lot. I have autism which makes it even worse... Is there hope yet?

Hey Joshua, welcome to SAS.

I am autistic too. It seems to be a bit more difficult for us when it comes to socializing. I still have problems at my age. Learning about how my autism affects me has helped me be able to deal with it better. I hope you find the help you need.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.
