How bad is autism for people and how does it affect their lifestyle?

I heard people who have autism are socially disfunctional and can’t have normal friendships and relationships. I have a friend who little did I know had autism. I didn’t know why he acted like such a jerk because he had a competitive lying problem that a lot of people hated about him. And I thought he was really strange and a unusual person. How bad is autism?
