Hello all!

Let's call me Iris.. and I am self-diagnosed at a very late age, of 42. I feel that I finally completed the puzzle.. Suffered from dissociation for half a lifetime to get through.. and loads of masking.. My psychologist has aided in the diagnosis and next step is taking a formal assessment..

Anyways, I am here to throw the mask and make friends and learn more about autism and myself . :heart:

Welcome!

This site can be useful for identifying and reducing sources of stress.
While everyone is different, there are some things that bother a lot of us.

Loud noises--I wear high fidelity earplugs to movie theaters

Crowded stores--shop early in the morning

Hi hello welcome! Glad you found us. Diagnosis explains so much of our past. Lots of late diagnosed members hang out here. You'll fit right in. :)
