I'm worried about where I'll end up living when my parents are gone because I have high-functioning autism and even with a job neither my parents nor myself could afford to buy a house for me to live in not with house prices in Auckland,New Zealand because it is near,at or above NZ $1 million for a house and even apartments are like $300,0000 to $40,000 for a basic one-room apartment and renting is pretty expensive unless you don't mind living in a cold,damp,mouldy,un-insulated dump.
Also I'm worried about not being able to find a reasonable job with decent pay so I don't struggle financially and am able to pay for utilities bills,food and council rates because I was bullied and had to be home-schooled so I never had the chance to attend university and get a degree.

Maybe you can consider going to a technical school to learn a trade.
If you like computers or programming, you have what are called 'Bootcamps' which can have you in a job in less than 2 years.

Sorry about your circumstances, is there no help in your region, it could be a good option to look into groups online through facebook and other social media outlets. Satoshi Tajiri. the creator of Pokemon was actually diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, Dan Aykroyd, Andy Warhol too.
