    Sorry this isn't a question, but I need to say this somewhere.
    I am 17 and I am dealing with low self esteem and no social skills and likely depression. Since starting AS I have no friends, my brothers are both at uni and I feel so completely alone. I started out with high aspirations and optimistic about the future but now everything seems hopeless. My relationship with my parents isn't particularly good. I don't know the first thing about them and don't like interacting with them. I most likely have Asperger's Syndome which makes everything seem even worse. I cannot have a conversation, I cannot relate to people, I cannot motivate myself to find a hobby, revise or improve myself. I feel I am slipping further and further downhill and I am afraid it will most likely end in either a long miserable life or suicide. It seems that as long as I'm doing well academically, no one seems to care. I couldn't even talk to my brothers directly about my problems. I had to write a letter and leave it for them to find.
    I appreciate anyone reacting to this. I just really needed to get this down.

    Im really sorry you are going through such tough moments. Hope you can get over your problems as soon as possible and forget about it. Easier said than done, but I’m no expert around this subject. Keep a smile on your face all the time and maybe ask your teacher this morning how they are or even a class mate, its a start. About your parents, i know it would be different for all of us, but they have been looking after you for the past 17 years, don’t let your mind think that they have been neglecting you or that your relationship is not good with them. Surely there is something you can speak about with your mom and dad. Try to do so and start doing things differently. Idk if any of this would help, but hope you overcome it soon.
