I have exams (to go to a university, I'm in highschool now) in March and June 2019 so many people start studying from September 2017 (me included) and I've already had two illnesses in 2 weeks. I'm already feeling stressful. :o :(

I don't really have a job at the moment. Quit university back in January/February (can't remember when precisely) due to being too stressed out about it.
So now I'm attending a form of job training while we try to figure out what kind of job my aspie-brain can handle.

Is this an inside joke between Asperger's people I don't get?

If so I apologize for not understanding it.

Wasn't joking, but I'm aware of that angle that some could find distasteful. Just trying to constructively contribute to solution.
Would take too much space to elaborate, so I'll just say I'm pretty sure the idea can lead to increased level of wellbeing.

I apologise if I've offended RhD or anyone else.

No no. Just curious as to why you suggested that. :)

I wouldn't like to go off the thread's topic, just expressing my opinion that I think you could successfully do that kind of jobs and that it could produce benefits on wider range of situations you might be experiencing difficulties in at the moment.

Wouldn't like to be pushy, but if you're intrigued maybe we should exchange PMs.

I probably could work with those things, in the right environment.

Off course you could. And I think you'd do it very good.
As far as environment is concerned, nowadays there are possibilities to organize a favourable setup in almost any kind of job. Some good will and engagement of professionals (in social disciplines) and you could find appropriate place for yourself. And it could bring you broader benefits with right management (of your inclusion in profession).

I finished high school (or what comes closest to a high school in Austria) this year and I'll start my 9 months of civilian service in two weeks. After that my plan is to study mathematics, but I'm not 100% sure about that yet.

Not for me, but don't let that discourage you

From reading the forum since 2011 I always thought most of you were quite a bit older then me.

First time that I notice this thread...great read :) . I'm surprised that all of you are so young...or maybe it's me being old :) .

Graduated in economics and management, had my own company for 4 years, then worked a couple of months as an advisor at PwC. Didn't quite like it. Not the work, but the ambient, which was understandably very formal. So, currently I'm a crypto currencies trader and I'm getting ready to apply for my 3rd bachelor degree. This time in computer science (yeah, I'm liking more and more programming and the ambient of the majority of the IT companies, like Xing and Google, are way more relaxed than PwC, or any of the other companies from the so-called big 4).
Will be finishing it when I'm 29/30 years-old though, I hope I can land a job on it.
