Hello!

Hi! I'm Bo, I'm 20 and I live in a flat with my girlfriend. I have received my ASD diagnosis very recently, and it has been great to get that validation and know that I'm not alone. I'm unfortunately going through a mental health crisis at the moment, which has been caused, at least in part, by biting off a little more than I can chew in terms of going from not being able to hold down a volunteer job in a charity shop to being a full time university student in quite an intensive course. Because of this, I'm currently trying to look into the viability of changing to a different course and studying that part time, instead of what I'm doing now. I'm very lucky to have a very supportive girlfriend and family though, and I'm thankful for that.

In any case, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm interested in getting a bit more to grips with my own sense of self and would be interested to see if there are any other people who got ASD diagnoses later in life who are, or have been, in a vaguely similar situation to myself. 

I hope everyone is having a good evening.
