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?
Thanks for your responses all, appreciated!
This is my first appointment, but I have so far filled in an Early Years questionnaire and attended an information and Wellbeing afternoon with 11 other people. I was led to believe that I would be waiting another 6 months to be seen for assessment so when I an called so much quicker than that I start to imagine all kinds of things. But it's probably not significant at all..
