I'm being tested for aspergers soon and just wondering if anybody else found out that they had a ASD in adulthood?

I diagnosed myself at age 38 if that counts. I don't have an official diagnosis though, and I won't get one since I've made bad experiences with the so-called mental health system back in the day.

I self-diagnosed at about 38 with AS, diagnosed at 45 with PDD-NOS by a psych student at a major university. Due to inconsistencies in the report, I don't fully accept this diagnoses and would like a second opinion but can't afford it.

Aspergers wasn't a diagnoses until I was well into adulthood. I learned about it through my son (he is now 20) when he displayed the symptoms and I could see the similarities between us.

Self-diagnosed at 40. Suspected it for years before that, but never delved into it. Have a cousin who's a psych major that basically blew it off when I asked for an opinion. Just offered to send me a mountain of information that will say I'm not. So, by a semi-professional, I'm NT. So guess I'm just a weird NT. :?

But anyway. Yeah, go for it. Get a real diagnosis. Maybe I will someday, too! :)
