So as the title says, this is another newbie thread. I’m Anthony and it’s looking increasingly likely that I am on the spectrum. I’m working with a specialist at the moment and all the screening tools are pointing towards an aspergersesque outcome. It’s been a long journey getting thus far. I just wish it came sooner because it’s been quite damaging for me.
My traits have been problematic, especially on the social front - I pretty much redefine the term ‘socially awkward’... To be honest it’s quite a big step me posting on here!
I don’t really know what else I can say... other than I’m not showing symptoms of covid-19, so this post isn’t contagious. So feel free to ask questions... I’m better at answering questions than I am trying to work out what to write!
Posting on autism forums was a big step for me too at the time - I wish now that I hadn't waited until I was formally diagnosed, as it's been better "therapy" than anything the "experts" ever provided in the decades prior to that. They're a really friendly bunch around here, and always generous with their support and advice. I hope you find it as beneficial as I have over the last few years.
Thanks Trog :) (see I read your ice breaker!)... I’m hoping things work out for the better, I could do with a bit of luck!
