Hello All

Hello all,

I am a 54 year old female who got diagnosed with ASD in 2014.  I have unusual interests that are not typical for my gender such as astronomy, space exploration, meteorology, sci-fi and the superhero comic book TV and film genre as I have problems in reading fiction and even as a child I would rather read an encyclopedias and other types of reference books.

Please can any one tell me where I can locate my community profile?

Thank you

  • Thank you California that will be a great help to me.  I am taking part in the SETI home institute program where I download software that is connect to a radio telescope that scans for signals from out solar system and beyond.

  • Sounds like in fact there is still a way to go but I know is one or two entrepreneurs have edged to get there. I should think the original visitors would have to stay in domes

  • Hi, I'm in your position too, I'm on a 15 month waiting list, and freaking out about getting the diagnosis becauseI really need the help! Though I joined yesterday and already feeling much better reading everyone's accounts and I actually for once feel like I relate to people! Hope this forum helps you too while you're waiting :)

  • Hi Katrine :) It's really interesting hearing about your interests, I also love anything to do with space/science in general. Currently musing over the problem of whether one could get far enough away from earth to look back and be able to see the dinosaurs (etc) or whether it would just be old light, though we can see the big bang so it might be possible, and there's no reason we couldn't one day translate light into images anyway - and obviously the kind of immense telescope all that would require!! It's a silly problem to think about but it would be so cool

  • you sound just like me welcome! I'd love to learn more about astronomy ! 

  • Very helpful thread.Me also looking for community profile
