    I got my results today. My psychiatrist gave me a levels one and two autism/aspergers diagnosis based on the interview. On the test part, everything was fine except processing speed, which was below normal.

    What's it like for you to have the diagnosis now? Slow processing is definitely common for people with autism, I have that too.

    Glad for you that you gotten youre diagnose .so now you have an answer on why you have this
    " iccues " in life .

    Reg the levels what i think youre doc means is that you have Level 1 tho as you cant have multiple levels. Its either 1 (Mild formerly known as both Asbergers , HFA High functioning) , 2 (formerly known as Moderate) ,and last 3 (Formally known as Severe )
