Autistic, lonely, angry at myself, tired of the struggle

I have autism, formerly called Asperger's syndrome.  Mid 30's and finding the world very anti-autistic at the moment, the stress and frustration alone have given me migraines and restless nights.

I'm working on being more independent and moving on with my life, though I have never met other autistic people I could learn from or who also want to explore friendships and dating like I do.  

I struggle to find decent work where my autism would be an asset not a hindrance, though I keep busy with DIY projects like restoring outdated computers to make them usable.  I would like to build my own PC sometime for both gaming and research.

I live in Swansea though I don't like it anymore, and given the choice I would choose to live in a cosy house near a mountain or forest rather than a city.
