Hi, my name’s Foggy. I’m 24, nonbinary and I use they/them pronouns. I was diagnosed with autism in March but I have recognized I’ve had it myself since I was 20. I had a struggle pursuing a diagnosis I believe because I’m AFAB and possibly because my mom didn’t notice any of my autistic traits growing up. However I did end up getting a diagnosis. It was a big relief for me. I finally knew what was going on with me and could then learn how to cope. Before I knew I was autistic I didn’t know how to cope with my (then unknown) sensory processing issues, executive dysfunction issues, and odd social habits. Now I’m trying to accept myself for who I am and stop masking because it’s led to burnout so many times. I’m excited to take part in this forum and learn more about myself. Thanks for having me!
