I am a mother of two boys,one has asperger's.He was diagnosed about six months ago at the age of five.
And thanks to his diagnosis,I finally found out why I am the way I am,and I got my diagnosis a month ago.

My first autism assesment was around the time I was six,but back then they didn't know asperger's,and they thought I would grow out of my quirks because I was extremely verbal and (so they said)smart.
Like most of you can probably relate,life wasn't always easy,but now I also see the fun parts of being me,I could't imagine being a normal woman with normal interests like shopping for clothes,I rather collect vintage toys,perfumes and stones:P

If my English isn't perfect sometimes,please forgive me,I am Dutch :)

Hi and welcome.

I can relate since I was also just a few years too early to be diagnosed. Knowing how I was at 6-7, had AS been in the DSM at that time I think I would have been diagnosed in 20 mintes flat. Annoying but all you can do is move on with the hand you're delt.

Si

Thank you guys for the warm welcome.

I have been lurking here for awhile,and feel right at home here.

As a child I always thought I was the only one of my kind,it is nice to know I am not alone.
