    I live in a dorm, take a bus home when I have less busy weekends. Single dorm, initially I was going to have a roommate, but they changed plans when I informed them I was autistic. So I ended up with a single. If you tell me the state you live in, I might be able to list out some close colleges which have good programs to accomodate autistic students.

    The stress is there, sure, but a good college environment made all the difference for me.

    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    Having spent 4 years in a dorm, with roommates, I can tell you that sharing a room is a challenge. It's been said that the quickest way to lose a friend is share a room with them. You never know just how much a friendship will be taxed. It's probably wiser that you have a single. It isn't easy to transition from home to college, as it is. It's even tougher when one has something neurological going on, whether it's Autism Spectrum or ADD, ADHD,....

    We live near Buffalo, NY.

    So long as the plants don't respond back, I'm sure you'll be ok

    Oh, they respond, just not verbally. They tell me when they have too much or not enough light, food, water, etc.

    Sometimes I impersonate what I think they would be saying to me if they COULD talk. Husband thinks I'm crazy when he sees it.
