hi, I'm new, someone in another forum told me about this place. My name is Christian, I live in Australia, I am a software developer, I play guitar in a band, I love to cook and I read non fiction a lot. I've been married 28 years, and I have two kids, one is diagnosed with autism and ADHD. I am not diagnosed because, despite having plenty of money, there is literally no path to diagnosis for me, but my wife worked in a speech pathology clinic and her boss asked her if she realised I was an aspie. If I do any online test for autism, I will score a yes. If I answer as 15 year old me, I will blow it out of the water, I'll max it out.


Are you aware that you ticked "female" in your profile?
Does that mean you are part of the LGTB community?
As you can see, I am an Aussie, also.


Did I? I have a bi son and a trans son but I'm a boring old CIS....

I'm in Tassie, you?


I only have one head, so no, I am not a Taswegian.

I'm a "Cockroach" from Sydney.


I grew up in Melbourne so the less said the better :)


Hello Chris I used to live in Tassie Hobart when I was a child have some happy memories there.
now I live in Victoria.

I remember the cat and fiddle arcade we used to go there and watch it when it went off on the hour.
There used to be a fountain in the arcade and we used to put our hands in it.

Hi
I'm from NSW, so only a few hours away from Hobart!
I was only diagnosed with ASD a couple of years ago when I was 27.
This is the first time I've ever been on a forum, so I'm not quite sure what say. :lol:

hissheadonastick, Welcome to WP to you, too! (And "Hi" seems like a reasonable start to me.)
