It's a relief isn't it :D
I got mine too. I'm now a card carrying autistic person and nobody can say I'm not. Well, they can say it but they will look pretty stupid :wink:

Yes, it is :D .
By the way, I went to Danuta too (you mentioned in your thread in the women's section). She is great! Thanks for posting about your experience there. After reading it I contacted pretty much immediately. And managed to get the diagnosis and still have another month left of uni holidays to try to get organised in. :D

Danuta is lovely isn't she. She really understands autism, especially in women. She is a rare treasure. Hopefully one day more psychologists will get it. When I read that she had worked with Tony Attwood I figured she was probably a cut above the rest and I was right.

I hope it is what you wanted it to be. It seems from your recent messages that it is. :)
