this might be a good thing to ask your therapist. I wonder if learning self assertive communication skills can help with better understanding between members of your household? Would they be interested in going to family therapy with you? If not, you can learn on your own. It is so difficult to figu...

autism is associated with several genetic factors and science is pretty sure today that most autism is due to genetic influence. Some are still trying to point a finger at pollution of different forms but mainstream science trends heavily toward genetic factors as being the primary influence on deve...

recent diagnosis is a lot to sort. It definitely does give us answers to a whole lot of "whys" of the past, and everything we believed and thought we understood is turned upside down. I am almost to my 4th year since I was given diagnosis (at age 68), things are getting better as I underst...

welcome, glad you found us. There are many late diagnosed adults here. For me diagnosis explained a lot about my past and my struggles, why I seemed to do so poorly when it looked so easy for others to do the things we have to "in real life". It answered so many "whys". I was dia...

figuring out how to make healthy choices when seeking friends and relationships is a skill that I had to learn.

I don't know about the resources where you live, but is it possible to get listed with a recruiter (they call them head hunters here) who will search available jobs (IT, Computer, etc) and match them to your qualifications? Son had miserable job in IT security and with the help of a recruiter, he wa...

congratulations on your recent diagnosis. For me diagnosis helped me make sense of my past and answered a load of "why" questions I had from my past right up until the time of diagnosis (for me age 68). finally the world begins to make sense when we see how autism worked in everything all ...

sounds like ex did not have boundaries and expected a heck of a lot. Healthy relationships are not ones where we feel hounded, driven to constantly having to appease, and can't evade constant accusations, attacks and demands.
