    Just do whatever makes you happy. You got dealt a crappy hand in life, but you can still try to find something to wake you up in the morning and put a smile on your face. Whatever that might be is down to you.

    so you think my hand is sufficiently crappy that i'm allowed to choose whether to be employed?

    tbh i'm considered pretty unemployable, i've got another thread on my community job which is a charity case job i've been given and which i'm struggling into every day

    I don't know the first thing about you so I couldn't say, you and the people around you are a better judge of that.

    Work hard to find anything that I can do properly and master it. I know a billion people with autism and schizophrenia who mastered specific things like mathematics or chess or even poker. Of course I know that's not the case for all autistic people, but certainly there is something that you do really well, right?

    Mate find some actual friends who understand your conditions; get a job suited to your needs and have fun, play on your quirks a bit if you have to.
