You know what, I'm in the exact same boat as you! I'm 14 now, and I have Autism, Anxiety, Depression, and PTSD. I like infrastructure, politics, animals, theme parks, and public transport. I've been in Special Needs School's until recently. And it was quite easy to have friends and help them out, expect for a few kids. And I was mostly happy until I got some bullies who went quite extreme. That's where I gotten my mental problems from. So I had to move out and move back in multiple times until I got into High School.
As everyone was interested into Fortnite at School, and not me. It was very hard to find friends at School. I was in a Special Needs Classroom in a High School. And there was a gang of boys who were very edgy, and would bully me about my voice and my mental heath problems. And would also try to hurt me. There was also a group of boys who I met by just sitting down at the area that they would sit. They would do graffiti and would make fun of the Christchurch Shooting. And with online bullying, my dad bullying me, and all of this. It caused me to have a severe mental episode in front of the whole school every 6 weeks that would cause me to leave School temporarily.
All that anybody got there was a minor talk with the teacher and after denying it they would get away and I would be the one who gets punished by being suspended. So I missed most of my school work for year 7 and 8. So I've fallen behind massively. And also after the outbursts. Even the nice people were afraid of me because of my mental problems. And others would give me stuff that I just couldn't do.
I'm now trying out Distance Education and it seems like it will be permeant. This is the problem with the Education system. And it needs to change! Talking to anybody at school is talking to a wall. And I don't know if I'll be getting any more friends at my age wherever I'm going at this rate. And I've always struggled with adolescent most of my life with few exceptions. I don't know what's going to happen next. And it's good to know I'm not the only one. Which I've never had in my life!
