Someone said :
No BB I don't know other people with AS so I wouldn't know the answer to your question.
Perhaps getting to know other lads with a similar condition might
be helpful to you , even to learn from their life experiences and what
worked for them or to find common ground maybe?
Best of luck with the other thing though , fair play for getting yourself out there
I can only imagine how difficult it might be to overcome other peoples prejudices
and the stigmas surrounding mental health issues when confronted with people who might behave a little bit different, but don't forget you have to meet people halfway too so its a learning experience for everyone
By the way ,no offence is intended by calling AS a mental health issue,
I don't know what the preferred reference for it would be by people with AS?
