Hi, I'm 56 and I'm new here, looking some guidance for Asperger information and support, the things going wrong in my life I'm noticed a decade ago, just a year ago started to dig deeper, I did a tons of research online and I think I found the name of my dark moon side. Two months ago I've have first appointment in local GP, and they sent me to Talking Therapy service, I've been twice already, and by the symptoms I was told it highly possible it's Asperger, they suggested to register to this site as they didn't do assessments for Asperger, I'm really wanting to to nail the bug which effects my family, my job and my health
I'm appreciate for any guidance and respond

Hi there NAS35968,
Greetings, and welcome to the community ~ you might perhaps find the following NAS link to their diagnosis page useful:
And of course, if you have any further questions, feel free to ask them.
P.S, Also, If you telephone the NAS (National Autistic Society) helpline: 0808 800 4104 and select Option 4, and ask for an Adult Asperger's Information Pack, and leave your name and address, it should arrive in a few weeks or so, and it will really help you get going on the diagnosis process.
You can do Option 4 day or night, but otherwise in terms of speaking to an NAS advisor, the helplines opening-closing times are Monday to Thursday 10am to 4pm, and Friday 9am to 3pm. The helpline is invariably busy, so just keep ringing, and you should be through in a few goes.
Thank you for instant respond! Probably I'm in a stage 2 towards my diagnosis out of 5, I'm doubt about our local GP , cause on very first meeting I've mentioned I'd like to go for Asperger assessment and I've mentioned I've did 39 out of 50 online test, but I was told they don't know about adults just children Asperger, I hope upcoming another specialist from Talking Therapies will gives some approving information to start paperwork. Anyway I'm feeling better, I've started to apply my new knowledge how to deal with uprising emotions, starting to understand cases how past traumas happened.

When comes to the uprising emotions, I found that deep gentle and even pelvic breathing really helps, where you imagine in a sense that your lungs are in your pelvis, and you pull the breath down from the centre of your chest, as if your heart is your nose and mouth.
It takes a bit of practice, but if you get in there with it early ~ you can better control and eventually stop the emotional build ups and deluges from coming out, and also as such recycle the emotional energy for other more practical things.
