Hello My name is Katy.
I am 37 years old, live on my own, but near my sister.
I haven't been diagnosed yet, but I have been to speak to 2 doctors this year.
I suspected there was something not quite right a few years ago. Especially at work.
It came to light, when I was talking to my sister, about what someone said at work. She admitted to me that she kind of suspected I was on the autism scale, because she had notice somethings.
I read up on it and with my sister's help I realised I have some traits.
I don't like social interaction much, I feel like an outsider, never know what to say or how to keep a conversation going.
Some facial impressions allude me too, like I never know if someone's being serious or not.
I don't like things being changed suddenly, I need plenty of notice. My ears can be sensitive.
I found people get bored with me when I'm talking or I get talked over.
I get confused when someone says one thing and another person changes it, I get quite anxious.
I do haves things I like just right like my morning and night routine.
The doctor recognised I might have had ADHD a a child he things I am on the autism scale but not sure where.
I'm just waiting now. For an answer.
Anyway the fun part over!!
I am a chef, but have struggled progressing, because I'm not assertive or strong enough!
I enjoy music, reading, walking and dancing.
I joined here to try and figure out who I am and speak to people who have been diagnosed.
