Welcome to WP!

I'm comfortably retired so I've pretty much worked out how to muddle through life already. I find WP a pleasant use of my time, and sometimes I get good tips on movies and TV shows. Plus the company is nice.

welcome! One of the best things about learning my autism diagnosis is that I discovered there are others like me who understand. I am not alone. So grateful for insights and input, thoughts, ideas, articles, comments from members here. Just being around others who understand, here online is a tremendous relief. Internet forums are pretty much my complete social life. For people who can't do "real time" human interactions the internet is such a gift!
Glad you are with us.

Welcome to Wrong Planet from a fellow Portlander! :D

I'm 31 and was diagnosed with AS when I was 13.

I have accepted it as a part of my human essence.
