Just a quick one.

Hi everyone,

I have joined this site after it being recommended by someone after I explained to them that I really struggle with my ASD at times. 

I am 18 and female. I was was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome when I was 15, I wasn’t the happiest about my diagnosis, but did get a lot of support and everything seemed to fit into place. This explained to me why I was so different. It also meant once I got my diagnosis I cared less about how different I was, lol. 

I have only now started finding my diagnosis a lot more difficult. Mainly based on the attitudes people have towards my ASD. So here is where I have come to seek understanding and reassurance that I’m not alone (cheesy I know )

Hopefully I’ll be able to help others too and if this is the case then awesome, but if not then at least I tried I guess

thank you for taking the time to read this
