Hello!

I was recently diagnosed and I'm looking for a community to join. I've never really been involved with online forums but I figured now would be a good time since I've been cooped up in my house. I've been having a horrible time with sensory issues and so there is little I can do right now.
A little about me: I'm 27 and currently taking a break from studying nutrition and dietetics. This is my third major and third time "taking a break". I think getting diagnosed was a good thing though, and I plan to stick with college this time even if it takes me forever. I've been married for two years, together for nearly five years. After getting diagnosed, I realized my husband probably has aspergers too (is it ok to use aspergers, or are we sticking to the new dsm here?) He is higher functioning than I am and so a lot of what is happening to me is confusing for him, specifically the sensory processing disorder. Everything gives me migraines and so this is what I've been focused on making better. My social problems can wait I think. One step at a time! I know many of you love animals, so I will leave you with some pictures of my critters!
