What's the basis of this claim? While boys on the spectrum may have a hard time finding girlfriends, for girls it may be just opposite because of a lack of proper boundaries, being taken advantage of, and relationships not working out. Aside, reading other posts, sarahsweet's sister was on medication lessening social anxiety.

Bouncing from bf to bf? I wouldn't have put it that way. Also, you can receive a diagnosis at any time, to my knowledge.

If you can't get Lynda.com for free and you can't afford the monthly fee, either see if there are any tech meetups in your area where you can learn new skills and network with people, or learn from codeacademy.


Fact is, you can become a good coder or programmer without college. You can self teach yourself for free. It is entirely possible to get a job if you're self taught as a programmer. I know one person, for example, who got a job as a software engineer without a formal education. He taught himself everything he knew about programming and was able to prove to the hiring managers that he knew his stuff by taking their tests. Guess what? Two years later, he's making a 6 figure salary.


So it's possible to learn on your own. You just got to believe in yourself
It's funny you should say that because Linda.com has been my go-to for education. Once my college credentials were "offed", I was looking for my local library to support...

Apparently, we're all trying to figure this "thing" out...whatever mental disorder, disability we possess...some of us may have had professional diagnosis/prognosis...but others of us may just not be willing to feed money into the "system", which is more or less, where I stand...I know there is an issue, and many of us us which have those issues, but I'm just not willing to let our society define this for me...I currently have no health care, and I'm not completely certain, at this moment, that a Universal One would do any better than the symptoms I currently experience...though, I would thoroughly welcome a universal healthcare to this administration in the US
