Just talking to myself, I guess....

I'm guessing that I can assume that nobody took me up on my challenge to find anybody with Aspergers who is on disability funding.  Not that I can really blame my family and friends for not taking it up, except for the fact that it was my family that started this whole thing in the first place, specifically my mother.  Not saying that the reason she started this was for some reason other than getting me "launched", but I am saying that she was looking in the wrong area for the resources that would help with that.  I have a better chance of winning the lottery and getting struck by lightning....TWICE....on the same day, than of ever getting a disability pension.  And it's not just me; this is a reality for many other aspies.  Many adult aspies are too old to access the resources that are there for aspies.  Seems like for all the other resources, we are just not autistic ENOUGH.  I haven't got a clue how to solve this problem, and I don't know who to blame, or even if anyone deserves to be blamed.  One thing that I do know, is that I must move on from this.  I have to somehow get myself into some aspie friendly profession, where eccentricity is allowed, reading social cues isn't all that important, and everything  doesn't all go to hell in a handbasket if I have a meltdown or four.
