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 ...

the kinds of drugs they use and the medical and scientific knowledge professionals have gained since you were a child are tremendous. there are many options today for GA and "coming out" is much less difficult and dangerous once the procedure is over. Of course talk to your dr if you are c...

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. Learning how to set personal boundaries as part of survival techniques is ...

You are still in charge of decisions made after diagnosis, ...

I tell people I have lived my life in fear. Until my autism diagnosis I simply did not have understanding of the neurological struggles and trauma in my life up til that point and how they affected me day to day. Learning more about my autism, my own autistic neurology and being able to finally unde...

no, many people never have "careers", many people today move from job to job several times as they grow in skills or their interests change. It is more usual to change jobs every 3 or 4 years these days. Even if you have niche skills or a trade, you are likely to move on to a different job...

depends on the situation. At home I use a "white noise" machine and I often run a window fan, even in the winter (but not at the window) to block out neighbor sorts of noises. Other times I use ear plugs. I have a headset with ear buds that I can put on and play my favorite music. I can't ...

I think some of it has to do with "social conditioning". For years older single people have been the focus of ridicule. Look at the card game "old maid" and terms like "spinster" which have origins from long ago, making fun of "unlovable, unmarriageable" sorts...
