Hi everyone

Hello. I’m in my thirties and I have always felt different from everyone else. I feel like I am performing my life to everyone else and they are all watching me play a character of a person that isnt really me. I don’t do well in social situations and I am often said to be very quiet because I tend not to speak for fear of saying the wrong thing. I have done lots of AQ tests online and always score quite highly on them. I have mentioned it to my mum but she doesn’t believe I’m autistic. I don’t want to go down the nhs route to get tested as I work in healthcare and I feel it’s a bit too close to home. I hope you will accept me as a part of this group and I look forward to getting to know you all.
