Hi, everyone. I'm Mike. I'm currently undiagnosed however, after wrestling with the question for about 6 years, I'm about as certain as one can be without a diagnosis that I am autistic. I look forward to interacting with other autistic people as I continue the long process of unmasking and self-acceptance.
I'm not sure what else I should say. I'm not great at talking about myself unless I'm answering a specific question.

Hello, you can talk about your hobbies. Or difficulties in life, if they are difficult to solve.

Welcome to WP! I hope you like it here.

I also hope you have discovered these:
- Autism-Spectrum Quotient Test (AQ)
- Aspie Quiz Registering is not required!
Their results are completely unofficial but might provide additional support for your self-diagnosis (or suggest considering other possibilities).

P.S. From time-to-time you may notice me make an unflattering comment about Florida. Please do not attach much weight to this...while I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, my parents later moved to Florida...and some of the family followed them.
