Hello all - recently diagnosed

Hello all,

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.

cheers everyone.
