New to the community asking advice

Hey guys i'm new to the community and i am writing about my former self. Im 16 and i have only just been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome also know as AS. which you guys are most likely to already know. But what im really wanting to know is how some of you guys felt if you have been diagnosed with AS or any form of Autism or even if someone close to you has. I want to have a greater understanding of other people's views on there feeling because at the moment i'm so overwhelmed with such big new im kinda stuck with what to feel like.
