I am a 21 year old girl with Asperger's Syndrome and Dyspraxia... just in need of some advice. For over a year now I have been going back and forth to the doctors, I have been struggling so much lately, I feel physically drained, not to mention emotionally.. I have been struggling to keep it together, and know that it is affecting my relationships with my friends and family, I have been trying to get a job for nearly 6 months, I had one, but due to bullying, it ended badly so left after 3 weeks.. I just feel so distressed, I think I might be depressed.. I asked my doctor, and she said "you probably are" but have had no support at all, medication or counselling... I feel like maybe I am making a fuss about nothing, but just feel so tired of everything... feel so useless
thanks for reading

That's weird, your doctor said you probably are and then didn't suggest medication or counselling or anything. I suggest you press him/her for these things.
Also there are lots of young people who feel like you but you also have conditions that could likely worsen your coping abilities. So you need to make sure you have adequate support. Is there not specialist support for people with Dyspraxia?

Thanks so much for responding... I got diagnosed with it when I was 11... but have literally been offered NO support. At all EVER.... which sucks :/

Don't ever say you are useless. That sentence leads to nothing but more depression and negativity in your life. You are going through a rough situation and all you need now is something to look forward to. I understand that everything around you right now is dark and cold but you have to see past that. Express your feelings out to your friends and family and talk to them about how you feel and that it is really affecting your lifestyle. Don't bottle your feelings up. It's good that you're here reaching out for help and TSR is an excellent community to do so. Sadness/Depression is all in the head. An idle mind is the devil's workshop. If you can get your mind straight and look at the positive and brighter side, things will get better. Freshen up and seize the day. Learn new things, meet new people. Throw this unhealthy lifestyle away and never look back. You are only 21, you have your whole life ahead of you, you are definitely NOT useless. I wish you all the best. Get better, anonymous! Hope this helps

thank you.... :/ I am sorry, I just feel like such a burden to people nowadays, haven't been able to actually see any of my friends for months, due to them still being able to attend college, (I was forced to leave a year into my course due to financial reasons) but whenever we are free, it doesn't match up, can't have anyone round, as my younger brother is a lovely boy, but has extremely violent outbursts due to his severe autism, and social services offer no help on that front... i'm sure things will work themselves out in their own time, thanks for responding
