I am autistic

I keep saying it over and  over in my head since I was diagnosed last month. Sometimes it doesn't seem real. Sometimes I replace it with "I have always been autistic" . I went through my diaries looking for evidence and found it. 40 years of not knowing. Does this change my future ? It can't change my past but it can explain an awful lot. I still don't know quite what to do with this information. I am autistic . Fact.
