I’m 41 and Autistic, I received my diagnosis a little over a year ago and I didn’t think it would change my life that much. I was already pretty sure I was autistic and this would just confirm what I already knew. What I didn’t know was how much of a difference somebody telling me, this is who you are, this is real and it hasn’t all been your fault would make. I still don’t really know what it all means and I am still discovering who I am, with the help of some friends and family and the dismissal or ambivalence or others. The first year has been very difficult but also great at times, this blog is to document my journey and hopefully if your reading this it will help you on what ever journey your on.
