I'm a self-diagnosed female. I've been reading about Asperger's for a long time now and eventually decided to join this forum after watching Chris Packham's documentary the other day.
Hopefully i'll be on the same wavelength as some of you here. Nice to meet you all
Hi, I watched Chris Packham's documentary too, but I've had autism since I was little. But I know It's harder to be diagnosed later from relatives of mine. Hope you enjoy the forum.

I collect the flotsam....odd quotes from books read, patchworked with experiences and hopes and feelings to try and stick together the sense of things.....and people also!! :)
you'll find all flavours here. I come across as articulate and extraverted but I wear a mask that helps me portray a "show of normality and fitting in".....but my inner self...is a knotted ball of wool with much of what I want to say suck in my throat or not quite reaching my finger tips!
Hope all is well with you ProtectorOfTheSmall!
Well done for creating such a mask! That must be useful Thank you, same to you. I'm just enjoying browsing all the interesting topics on here.
