    Should I give up?

    If you have hopes and dreams never give up! The only problem with regret is it comes a day late. I belive you only get one shot at life, get out there and do it.

    I once asked the smartest person I know what I should do for a living. He said "ask your self 2 questions, what do you like to do? And what are you good at?" This is what will give you enjoyment and fulfillment in your life. If your career choice requires a diploma or GED get out there and do it. Many people with aspergers can and do get diplomas and GEDs. Steven Hawking is a great example of someone who didn't let his disability affect his life and career choice.

    One of my favorite quotes:
    "Whatever you are, be a good one."
    -Abraham Lincoln-

    I won't lie ... it will be tough for you. I think your best bet might be to find some groups that support those on the spectrum and let them know you want a real job. Talk to families that know what autism is and ask them for social networking assistance, because if you try to just dive into the work force with no diploma and the social awkwardness that accompanies your condition, it's unlikely you'll ever get hired.

    Also, you should do online classes to get your GED. That should be easy enough for you, they make those things very simple.

    My hope and my dream is to make money so that I can exist, have value, and not be homeless. I like to play video games. I like to masturbate. I like to listen to music. I'm not good at anything I can think of. I've come to terms with the fact that I will have to suffer for eight hours a day for the rest of my life to make money and exist, since I'm not valuable. I'm not even allowed to do that though. McDonald's and factories aren't accepting me.

    Pretty much everything requires a HSD/GED now. I've been trying to get a GED for years. I almost had it, but in 2014 they erased everything. Now the test is very difficult and expensive. The math section has calculus, and I couldn't pass it before. I'm thinking that I should not burden human society. A responsible society would have dealt with me long ago.

    The only thing like that around here is vocational rehab, and they rejected me. I live in a horrible area, very high crime rate. I was tortured by people down here when I was younger. I hate existing here so much. Should I just invest all of the money I have into leaving?

    I can't find any online help for my GED. I've already passed the Reasoning through Language Arts and Social Studies portions with honors. I have failed the Science portion and not attempted the Math portion. I cannot find any free study material for the science portion. The test has only been in existence for six months. I have so far spent over 100$ on this new privatized GED, and I have nothing to show for it. Plus I've been investing effort into it for several years, and I have nothing to show for it. I'm sick of investing effort for nothing in return. I hate existence.
