I was recently diagnosed with Autism at the age of 51.
I had suspected I was autistic for quite a few years after various discussions with some of my family members.
The therapist told me I would have been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome if that terminology was still in use.
Fortunately I have always been able to function reasonably well and I think I have probably learned to do a lot of masking over my life, so many people I come into contact wouldn't even realise I am autistic at all.
I am just getting used to it for now so I thought I would join up here into this community.
Hi scratch that - I found it now - I didn't realise I had to click on my username at the root of the folder to find the profile icon.
Welcome, 61 and just diagnosed earlier this year. Also Asperger's
