    It's a fantastically changed world for us from when I was your age. When was about 21, I happened upon a description of AS and have never doubted it described me. It wasn't until both my daughter was diagnosed and I started to see openly ASD celebrities, that I started to explore the ASD community. I have learned a lot and have met plenty of ASD adults. Not that I didn't know some before, just not openly so.

    Nice to hear how this site has helped. I started with books and came here to learn more.

    I found this forum while researching after a late in life diagnosis and instantly found myself in the
    posts I started reading and participating in.

    I've learned much more here than my psychologist who diagnosed me could ever give.
    I'm happy you have found the same in this community. :)

    Four years is an extremely long time to be on this forum! I'm also glad you were recommended here by what seems like a really good teacher. Feeling alone is never a pleasant thing and this forum is quite good at helping with that.

    She was a good teacher. Although one I didn’t always like. She often pushed me out of the comfort zone but we eventually came to understand each other. She always my biggest advocate for my independence and ability to make descisions.

    I’m glad you found this place. I was lucky to be diagnosed as a child but still feel alone a lot of the time .
