Autism And The Desire For Social Isolation?
Hello, I’m Yola. I have previously asked here about other mild autism syndromes. I attended semester 2 in law, I felt very insecure and nobody understood me. For some reason I felt very different and finally I did social isolation. Even in organizations, I almost give up, because I can’t manage that well. I also almost gave up on life, but I wanted to stay alive. It is very difficult to understand people’s instructions socially and actually understand others themselves. I myself had the thought to move again, but I knew that was not the right choice. Are there any suggestions to make me get back up? And are there suggestions for social therapy, or other therapies so that I can understand people and organizational structures?
Hello Yola, Thank you for the question.

Your complaint is not necessarily caused by autism. Some causes of complaints that you submit are depression, schizoid personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, and avoidance personality disorder.
