Hi everyone, my name is Lonely Lovely but you can just call me Lovely. My older brother has autism and ADHD and a lot of the time I feel very alone when it comes to talking about stuff involving him. I don’t really have any friends who understand what we all go through, so I guess that’s why am here, to be with people who understand, and if they don’t, well, at least I’m anonymous. I’m not sure how often I’ll use this site for ranting about my problems but I guess I already have. Sorry for the long intro, I’m excited to be apart of this community and I hope whoever’s reading this is having a good day/night :)

    Hi @LonelyLovely - welcome to the community. You will find a lot of people who will have a good understanding here, so please do come & chat (or rant) here absolutely any time. For a little distraction you might like to try our virtual 'Coffee lounge,' to meet some of our other members. I hope to see you there. :)

    Welcome to the community from me too @LonelyLovely :) That's a wonderful reason for joining. Do you get along well with your brother? 

    As chiarieds has said, the coffee lounge is a great place to meet new members if you're fancying a chat. You might also like to browse through our categories for discussions around autism, and neurological conditions
