What led you seek diagnosis?
It’s always sort of been there, but I started to think seriously about the possibility when I read ‘Odd girl out’ by Laura James, followed by Cynthia Kim’s ‘Nerdy, shy and socially inappropriate’. I then had a couple of friends independently suggest that I was on the spectrum (including one who diagnosises children!): I then asked a group of very close friends and they also had their suspicions. It was when my lovely mother in law said something about my niece (who is diagnosed) and I just thought “doesn’t everyone do that?!that I realised that it might be worth pursuing.
maybe we should produce a guide to other women...or a board game...Aspie women snakes and ladders...
up the Laura James and down the diagnosis snake xx
