I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Oanh and I am here to support, meet, and socialize with new people on the spectrum.
Where are you from? I am from London and am in my early sixties.
Oanh Which Country are you in? I am in England and am a man in my sixties but young at hart. I go for walks in the park most days even during lock down. I keep busy but nowadays mainly on Zoom. My parents were informed that I have Asperger Syndrome about thirty years ago but we knew that there was something wrong with me all my life.
Looking forward to hearing from you Oanh.
David Shamash London
What are you interested in?
It would be helpful to know something about you.
I am Jewish Single and I am aged 63 and live in London England trying to keep busy.
I now keep busy on my computer as most things are closed.
Where do you live?
I am in London East London. I have joined this groupfor my son who has Autism. my website www.upsideofdowns.org.uk. feel free to get in touch. regards
I'm in Montreal, just turned 38 last month, and living with my parents. Whereabouts are you, Oanh?
Hi, We are also a Jewish family. My son has Asperger's and I have been involved in autism advocacy my whole life. Whave have services been for people on the spectrum in the UK?Renee
Are you the lady from East London? You cannot socialise with most of us as we come from different places in the world. If you are in England you cannot meet people and socialise with people in the USA. If you are in the USA you cannot socialise with people in England.
Where abouts are you in the UK?
As a Canadian, maybe I could offer to mediate between American and British people over here!
Yes but in England I cannot meet people in Canada or the USA. All we can do is talk by E Mail.
THANKS DAVID SHAMASH LONDON
Hi Oanh, welcome. Are you an adult on the spectrum or are you the parent of an adult?
I'm the parent of a 19 year old who has ASD.
Hoping you are doing well.
I have logged in specially although it is after 1 in the Morning to say that I do NOT want to meet anyone because of this Coronavirus for the time being. I had FORGOTTEN about the Virus when I said that I would like to meet people in London. People in England are still dying from this Virus. All my existing groups are on Zoom. I have not been on public transport since March 16th. I might E Mail the person who gave me her contact details in East London but I do not want to meet her or anyone else until the Virus situation has improved. It is worse in the USA so I hear. I think it is best if we just all talk by E Mail until the Coronavirus situation improves. It probably will not be solved until there is a Vaccination sometime hopefully in 2021.
WE DO NOT WANT TO INFECT EACH OTHER WITH CORONAVIRUS BY MEETING EACH OTHER BUT BY E MAIL WE CANNOT INFECT ANYONE.
Good Night from London.
I hope that in the meantime there won't be any cataclysmic volcanic eruption nor any magnitude 8+ earthquake nor any Category 5 hurricane nor any similarly tremendous natural disaster that would complicate things with coronavirus recovery etc.!
