Kind of freaking out silently on the inside, had all my assessments and will finally get the answer tomorrow, whether I do have autism or not according to these set of specialists.
I thought I had got to point I was okay with whatever the answer but now am not so sure.
Really scared what if this is this not the answer to I was searching for then I have wasted time and money (went private) chasing this diagnosis and back to step one as why I struggle with life so much.
If it is the answer is yes where do I go from here knowing the challenges I have had aren't just gonna go away. reading everyone elses journeys this is just the beginning.
how did it go?
It went really well, was to exhausted yesterday, but yh got my answer they said definitely High functioning autistic, Asperger's syndrome, autistic spectrum condition they said I could use the term I prefer.
Er... congratulations? You sound pleased
Welcome to the tribe!
Not sure how old you are or what may have already been suggested as a 'what next'... but I was recommended this book:
Very late diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome (Autistic Spectrum Disorder): How seeking a diagnosis in adulthood can change your life
It was pretty helpful...
That is a good book yes
Yh I am found my people,
Am 30, my diagnosis team were ace they said they will give me a list of recommendation for all the stuff I struggle mainly, just gotta wait a few weeks for that thou, thanx for that will read that while I wait.
Congratulations on getting your diagnosis. Welcome I hope that you can now find renewed self understanding and acceptance.
I just bought this to see if it is any good. It looks like it might have more post diagnosis information in it
