Newly diagnosed adult female Newcastle 38 years old

Hello, 

I was diagnosed yesterday. Today I have been thinking about things that have happened to me or that I have done in the new knowledge of my diagnosis. It's very odd. I was surprised to be diagnosed. I asked if I was borderline but they looked horrified and said that I was 100%, no doubt classic autism. 

I'd like to say hello to people on here. Hello.

    Is it possible to rethink yourself at 43?

    Yes, I think so. I got diagnosed at 56 and am busy working out what to do with my future. A big part of diagnosis is understanding what makes you tick and why we struggled to understand the world and why the world struggles to understand us. I have learnt masses of stuff since diagnosis and now understand things a whole lot better.
