    Hi, my name is Jocelyn. I was diagnosed with autism at age three, but my parents hid my diagnosis from me, so I just found out last week. After learning about my diagnosis, everything about my life makes so much more sense. I am in high school, and my special interests include chemistry, Animal Crossing, and betta fish.

    Chemistry is great (I got shut out of it too young)

    There's lots of fizz on this site!

    Hi and welcome, I hope that you enjoy it here. It sounds like it was helpful for you to know about your autism diagnosis, I think knowing about autism can help to understand oneself and find strategies for any difficulties encountered.

    Hello welcome to the forums. My parents also hid my diagnosis from me too and I didn't find out until I was 37. It hurts I know.
