Finally diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder

Postby valerian moon » Wed Mar 30, 2016 4:57 pm

At 18 years old, I was finally diagnosed with autism. I had been thinking about my past diagnosis of aspergers and since they took that out of the dsm, I asked for an autism diagnosis and I got one. Feeling really validated right now.

That's excellent news. I'm glad that it is a help you to have some validation.

I bet you are so relieved to know have that validation of why you are different. I'm 10 years older than you and last year I had a consultation stating I was likely on the spectrum for aspergers. I've always know I was different but I could never make people understand "why". I've considered going back and having a full diagnosis but the money is little difficult to budget for that right now. My main reason for wanting it is so that my friend and family will have some understanding and hopefully cut me some slack sometimes when I do things differently than they would. Good luck to you with your new diagnosis! Don't hesitate to reach out if you need someone to talk to!
