Old age with autism

I'm about to turn 50. I'll be getting old. I have no support from family or friends. I'm terrified of getting alzheimer's like my father and being at the mercy of sadistic nurses in an old age facility who will disrespect my extreme hypersensitivity to sounds and smells. I worry it could be so bad all I could do is try to commit suicide. I'm poor, of course. I have a particular configuration of asperger's and childhood abuse and a sound of voice that makes me annoying and unlikable to everyone. I'm really worried.

Please look into autism speaks for resources for support. Or your state or county senate bill 40 board. I'm sorry for your pain and I will say a prayer for you! God bless!
