Welcome to the NEET and Shut-in advice thread!
(Version 65, running since Oct. 31st, 2013)
Happy thanksgiving everyone!
The forum based support group will be going live at some point in the next week. The support group will be held in our forums at https://neetorious.com/forums. The support group forum will be invisible to all users except those participating and will not be crawled by any search engine bots. However, even with these precautions, it's still inadvisable to post personally identifying information.
The main purpose of the support group forum will be for keeping semi-regular journals of our daily lives and thoughts. Each member should maintain a thread that will contain their semi-regular journal entires. We will then try to convene either once a week or once every two weeks (I haven't decided yet) to discuss the events of the past week(s) and perhaps offer each other advice in ways in which we can improve.
If you are interested in participating please send a /query to me (Ten) in #NEETadv or through a PM on the forum. If I don't know you I might ask a question or two before giving you the go ahead. I know it's impossible to vet people online but I want to try to keep the support group a place people will feel comfortable sharing information.
I want to keep the initial support group small (less than 10 people) to start out with until we can get all the kinks worked out as to how to best conduct it.
I will keep everyone updated with more information in the coming day so keep an eye out in the thread and the forum.
Again, thanks to everyone who continues to selflessly help others in the thread and the other areas of our community.

So, I decided I was going to leave home. I'm 18, turning 19 soon, I studied a year in university before realizing I was studying what I thought my parents would tell me to go into, rather than what I wanted. So I left, but being a major beta was unable to decide what I wanted to do. I still don't know, but I know I need to decide that for myself, and that I need to leave home to find that out for myself. I've always thought things like soul searching were stupid, but perhaps I need to do a bit of that myself. There are other reasons as well, such as the fact my parents are religious and I'm, well, not. But, as you may have guessed as I am posting this, I'm really afraid, I'd never admit it in real life, I need to take a stand and show everyone I can decide my own fate, but I really haven't the slightest idea where I'll go when I leave home (planning on leaving within a week) or how I'll get by (only got about $100). I'm so lost, so I'll ask you anons if you have any advice for me, or what you may have done in a similar situation.

How can i ask people to stop touching me without revealing how aspie i am? My classmates keep touching my arms, back, legs, etc, never for very long. We are learning the muscles in anatomy and one of them keeps tracing her fingers along mine while saying their name, insertion, origin and action, which is really getting to me and i don't know how to say to stop. She got to the maseter and sternocleidomastoid and i had to leave the room for a few. Ever since I was little, when people would touch me it would make me jump and just really freak me out; it's not that bad now but i still get very anxious and if i'm not expecting it it freaks me out. No matter what class it is, there's always somebody touching me and i hate it but i don't know how to make it stop without seeming weird. I used to just ask them to but i think it made them mad, because they would almost completely stop talking to me.
