Hi! I'm new too.

Were you relieved when you got your diagnosis of ASD? And, if you don't mind telling about it, do you still have anxiety attacks, or are they actually all and only ASD symptoms instead? I hope that makes sense.

Welcome to WP! I hope you like the folk you meet here.

I was diagnosed at age 64 so my experience was different. 64 years of wondering what-the-heck was wrong with the world, and then finally finding out.

Just remember that you were the same person after getting the diagnosis that you were before...except after you knew more!
