Hi?

I've been diagnosed with Aspergers by my psychologist sort of out of the blue this last month. It is a work-in-progress getting the diagnosis finalized with a psychiatrist due to my previous psychiatrist misconstruing everything as depression thanks to my flat affect. Now, the current assumption is that I have generalized anxiety disorder secondary to my Aspergers and that any depressions just a symptom of those in conjunction.

Anyway, this diagnosis has sort of been a shock to the system. Everything makes a whole lot more sense, but at the price of a not terribly positive outlook.

I'm 17, female, and live in the United States, so... hi!
