No friends

I don't have any friends at all! I never understand what I do wrong, I always feel I have friends but then as soon as I stop making the effort or no longer in that workplace I hear from noone and when I do message I get ignored, people only seem to be friends with me when I see them everyday, due to health I'm now out of work and haven't got a single friend, my partner works offshore so as soon as he's away I feel so lonely and isolated

Facebook - has plenty of people on it and support groups for autism and internet myautismteam is another support group for people with autism or autism parents or parents of autism - might help

Ah that's awful. You must be very lonely. You can talk to me. Where are you in the world xx obviously your health is a factor as to why you can't work, I think you need to find some sort of group that can help you feel a little less isolated, it's scary I understand but if we don't push our boundaries just a little we will isolate our self's.

I'm in Scotland. I don't really know what groups to go, I don't have a lot of things I'm good at or interests if I'm honest, I was housebound for a while, and now I'm managing to get out a bit more but I have cfs so I end up feeling really unwell and exhausted after going out and need a whole day to recover :(

Maybe have a look on meetup.com/ and see if there's anything you could plausibly get to? Even if you aren't interested straight away you might find that hearing people be enthusiastic about something sparks an interest in it.

I don't really if I'm honest, I've joined a yoga class so will see how that goes, if I have plans I don't mind doing things on my own, but my health went downhill and was housebound for a bit, now I try to get out when I can or when I have to if I have appointments etc. Just cos I'm not working now with my health and I live alone it gets rather lonely
