Oh my goodness, Kraftie and AspieUtah, It is so amazing how it all worked out. I feel really blessed like God worked it out for me. I talked to the person who originally noticed it this morning and he is so happy for me. He told me that the second job that he is in where we met, he will be taking a break from this year. So if the timing had been any different I might not have ever met him. And if my husband and I had not gone to the Autism Expo and the Special Olympics rep had not recruited me and convinced me to join and if I had never tried the one sport which is where I met the the person who told me about OVR, I would have never met you guys nor ever known that I was Autistic. So it's been an amazing journey. I feel very blessed. Everything happened at the right time and each person was placed strategically in my path in order for me to find out.

I am glad that you have gotten peace of mind and a validation of what you believed inside. Its nice too you don't see it as a new obstacle, but rather a clarification of the hill you have been climbing all along. Its good too in that it works with your goals. Your almost a poster child to show diagnosis can be a useful thing. :) I think one of the things that also helps is you have a lot of spirit, and try to mold things in a positive direction.

Yeah. Rebbieh, it is kind of weird that we congratulate each other on that. But it is very understandable because of what we have to endure in life. We are a special bunch! :D


Yes, it's understandable. So congratulations (again). :)

Oh gosh I'm so happy for you. Congratulations! I know that once I received my DX, I finally felt like I felt like I belonged somewhere-- for the first time in my life. I'm glad that you are finally validated.

Awesome! Glad to hear you were finally able to get a diagnosis and find a bit of peace. I do believe that a diagnosis can bring us peace?I am still trying to figure out how I can get one where I live (outside the US).

Thank you. What country do you live in? Perhaps one of the members will have insight on how you can get one.

Or do you do Slalom?
