Been good to hear from any adult ASD diagnosed women in this forum... or does anyone know any good sites for ASD women? What are your experiences?
...previous thread clogged as now months into its lifespan) ,.....
This is obviously a conversation that isn't worn out. Personally I'm quite convinced that menopause is what has tipped me over the edge and made my thinking and behaviour recognisably autistic and ADHD-istic.
It's still a hammer blow but it feels like there's a chance of being kinder to myself in the future. Maybe we are the research...
Hey you! I think the Aspie traits have always been there but the hormone ouch has meant that our usual coping and masking strategies can’t cope so well with it x well put Spotty xx be kind to yourself xx
I agree that the traits have always been there but they were so well masked that they weren't visible to me. The last few months have been like peeling an onion always finding another layer of complexity and I still find it quite mind blowing that I never realised all of these obvious things about myself.
Hi Misfit, I thought it was my phone/computer playing up yesterday as I just kept getting error messages, from your comment and the lack of activity I guess the forum was down. Glad you made it through the weekend and hope you are feeling a little better. x
Hello thanks Spotty. Good to have contact again! I am slowly improving day by day. I am eating small amounts and getting up. This morning I managed a couple of chores. It seems Tom has made a decision and gone. Hopefully he will get the support he needs through work and his other online contacts but am sad to see him go. I like your analogy to peeling off layers. I think I feel discovery is like that too. How was your weekend? And your injury?
Hello Ellie your little green light has gone on.
missed you guys too!!!! Awwwww! :) - good to be back!
Very pleased to be in touch with you both again
Now then ladies......confession time!.....which one of you broke the forum!! Hehe
I did wonder! Think it was me.. I was in the middle of replying to you and it crashed in a dramatic fashion....
Certainly missed you guys.....someone crashed the boat to Autopia....I blame Warriors seamanship skills, ....but it could have been my fault as the masthead! Hehe
Hope the mast head not broken and warrior checks up on navigation skills! Or maybe another island floated into us. Or a meteor fell out of the sky and made a big splash.. ''twas a bit too quiet without everyone!
I feel the same..,,it is like having a veil lifted....but it is certainly a big ass veil! Xx
Big veil and lots of onion layers as donkey says to shrek
