# Coping with autism

hello . My name is Janet . Until recently I did not know I was autistic. I am at times struggling to embrace this fact . Has anyone else had the same issue

• I’ve struggled with my traits so much that when I was told I was almost certainly autistic, at first I dismissed it, then came a period of intense hatred for the fact I’m so weird, eventually a begrudging acceptance. Probably not the same process for all but it’s difficult and you are not alone :) You’ll be ok, you got this :)
