I’ve come to the forum to find identification. I believe I am on the AS but haven’t had a formal diagnosis. I’m in my sixties and autism wasn’t talked about when I was growing up. I may not post much, but if I get identification, it might jolt me from my lethargy and make me go for diagnosis.
I’m pleased to meet you all
I was diagnosed three years ago at the age of 67, so you and I are from the same generation. You're right when you say autism wasn't talked about when we were younger. I had many problems…
Hello Snowcake, welcome to our humble abode. Congrats on the self diagnosis! :) I hope you will feel welcome and validated here.
Sincere thanks to Rach91, Ben and Annmarie97 for the warm welcome
Welcome and congratulations on self diagnosing! That's a big and positive step to take. I self diagnosed a few years ago and now I have an official diagnosis which has brought me a lot of validation and peace.
You must be so relieved, Meeksworth! Thanks for the warm welcome x
