Happy Valentines Day WP! My evaluation is over and I've officially been diagnosed with ASD level 1. I feel relieved but not much else at the moment. I'll update you guys as the feelings progress but I just wanted to share. Thanks for all of the support over nearly 3 years of trying to figure myself out. It feels good to be able to really call this place home.

Happy Valentine's Day to you, too.

Are you going to pursue studies in speech pathology?

That's the plan. I've been admitted to the undergraduate Communication Sciences and Disorders program at my local university and also got in to the honors program so that is what I'll be doing in the fall.

I hope this is a step in a new and more positive understanding of yourself.
