Hello fellow Aspies
I'm a 24 year old Autistic woman and it's only recently that I've really started to take my Autism into consideration. That's why I've joined this forum, in hopes of helping me understand it a lot more and also being able to relate to other people (something I struggle with!)
I also struggle when it comes to online communication. It feels like a chore to constantly keep up with it. I know a lot of other Autistic people find it's the best way for them to communicate, and I'm sort of hoping that's how it will be for me. Or at least, I hope to become better at it. :)
So yeah, just wanted to introduce myself. Hope to be able to speak to lots of cool people and improve my online presence.
Peace out ^^
Hi, Nugget The Chicken Welcome to the group :)
I'm 25 and I'm currently awaiting my diagnostic assessment (I've been on the waiting list for 10 months, which feels like far too long). I also joined the forum to understand myself better, and I've found it so helpful.
Looking forward to hearing more from you :)
Hi Duckbread, fellow user who also has a bird in their username.
10 months is a very long time. I'm glad I was diagnosed when I was (2, I think) as I hear many people have difficult diagnosing experiences as adults. I hope it turns out okay. ^^
