    If only the Social Service dept had accepted the issues my Asperger Syndrome causes me and refered me for propper support Imight not be sat here in this mess.

    They said they were refusing my case as I am "too bright" and my IQ, which is more in the practical area, such as I'm good with computers, can wash myself etc etc. My emotional & social problems never even came into it.

    I was passed on to a very useless mental health team who I had to tell whay Asperger Syndrome was.

    I was hoping for them to take my case on so I could have a refferal to the NAS (National Autistic Society) for some ongoing support, but no. Dispite someone from the NAS being at the meeting, they point blank refused me, saying they only help crisis cases. No offence but maybe thats why I came here, maybe I am a fucking crisis case, anyone who thinks about taking their lives is one really.

    This happened ages ago btw.
  2. I'm sorry you got treated badly or unproductively. They should have looked more at your case. If you want to talk I am here.
    I have a friend with Aspegers so I know how difficult it can be to make releationships with people.

    Unfortunatly not in my area. I tried one but they've let me down sadly as they are only a charity providing short term support and have no real experts in my condition.

    that's not good.

    what about any support groups? is there anything you could join that might help?
    I don't know where your talents lie, and I don't know very much about Aspbergers, so I don't want to suggest anything that might offend you.
    if you can't find a group, why not start your own and try to get others to join.

    Am happy to talk anytime :)

    That's awful, Tin_Woman. I'm sorry they've been that way to you. I've had similar things happen to me because of my ADD. Idiots. :mad:

    Do whatever is left there for you. Going back & forth to what could & should have done is not gonna help as the damage is done.

    Here is a simple test if your mission on earth is done?
    If you are reading this,it isn't.
