First AB/DL Weblog Posting from me...

For me, this is my first posting in an AB/DL Weblog forum.
Here it is the "weekend", and an Autism & Cerebral Palsy 55 year-old "Adult Baby" again has nobody to play with, who shares my "juvenile" interest in playing "NERF WAR" in my back yard.
Growing up, because my late Mom was mentally-ill and psychotic, nobody my own age ever came over to "play with me" during my childhood years.
Only time others of my own age showed interest in me, was to simply ruthlessly harass and bully me.
Is there such a thing as "playmates and friends"?
A very difficult question for me to answer, since the concept of "playmates and friends" has never really registered with me until recently, when for the first time in my life, I have been finding, that internally, I am "missing something", which I should have had in my own "real" childhood, that "I never had".
I have been trying to "set up" a date for a massive NERF WAR in my back yard with other Autistic Guys I know who are video gamers, but it seems they are all pre-occupied with other things.
It seems, that nobody has any time" to play.
Only time I had a NERF WAR with anybody, was earlier this month at AUTREAT 2013, with one other Autistic adult and 2 Autistic pre-teen boys.
Growing up in my "real" childhood decades ago, I was always "ostracized and excluded" and never made any friends.
Anyway, "What is Friendship?", and "What is a Friend?".
