Been good to hear from any adult ASD diagnosed women in this forum... or does anyone know any good sites for ASD women? What are your experiences?
...previous thread clogged as now months into its lifespan) ,.....
This is obviously a conversation that isn't worn out. Personally I'm quite convinced that menopause is what has tipped me over the edge and made my thinking and behaviour recognisably autistic and ADHD-istic.
It's still a hammer blow but it feels like there's a chance of being kinder to myself in the future. Maybe we are the research...
Hey you! I think the Aspie traits have always been there but the hormone ouch has meant that our usual coping and masking strategies can’t cope so well with it x well put Spotty xx be kind to yourself xx
And you, I think I look for affirmation too from anyone and everyone but I'm starting to think that if I had an income I would be happier completely alone. A bit Georgia O'Keefe. My insecurities are centered around money unfortunately.
Morning Spotty, I have the same thoughts myself...but it seems a shame that we feel that to be happy and safe that we have to live secluded lives.
I lived on my own (with my son) for a couple of years and was lucky enough to be financially independent...I had my own space and lived in one of a secluded string of terraces which were all occupied by single women...we respected each others space but also looked out for each other. This was after my first marriage broke down....it was a good healing space.
Thanks Missy....both are an interesting and depressing read.......I turned 40 and became invisible! - What a skillset we have!! Do you think that is because we don't cause any trouble....we struggle or hide away...we don't complain...just fester down a hole feeling lonely - :(
Now.....have you eaten yet today.
