Assessment nearing...

Greetings

This is my first day on the forum so I'm just getting on the scoreboard  so to speak. 

I am 51, and having my NHS autism assessment very soon.

I am keeping this a secret except with my partner who knows- he is trying  to be nice about  things but clearly has no idea what adult ASD is about. Hence I am on here just to touch base with y'all. I've been browsing a bit at your messages and feel a bit less frantic now  I've proof I am not alone in a bad dream.

One question.  I was told the nhs waiting list is very long, then was suddenly offered an assessment. Is this just lucky chance or is there significance behind such a quick appointment?
