Hello everyone!

My name is John, I'm 41 and I was just recently diagnosed with AS and ADD.

I've spent most of my life trying to fit in and act "normal"; being told that all my symptoms were either in my head or it I just needed to try harder to get over things like being a very picky eater or my inability to function in social situations. I haven't made a new friend in over a decade and I've had one failed relationship after another. It finally got so bad that I had pretty much given up on the idea of ever trying to date again.

Now that I know, it's actually been somewhat of a relief to find out why I am who I am. I'm also looking learning more about AS and more about what makes me tick.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I will be sharing more about myself as I get to know you all. :D
