Hi,
I'm 99% sure I am autistic, possibly with a sprinkling of ADHD.
This morning was rough, my phone turned itself off in the middle of the night even though it was plugged in. So I woke up late - talk about a horrible start to the day.

I belonged to this forum years ago and didn't have a very welcome reception. I was in the process of my son getting diagnosed. His diagnosis is Aspergers. (This is how long ago it was) I've been reading and the people here now seem much more welcoming.

Welcome aboard.

You'll find us a welcoming and friendly bunch. I'm sure others will be along soon to welcome you also.

Have a nice day!

Welcome aboard. I hope this time around is more welcoming than last time. There's been a degree of turnover in userbase so hopefully we're new and improved but not disappointing like when food wrappers promise that.

Thank you for the welcome!

I had seen a discord link but it's expired, is there an official WP discord?

It's not officially affiliated with or endorsed by WP, but it does exist:

I don't know what a discord is. Like diswire and datwire or disstring and datstring? I have no idea! :D

Eirianbryn, Welcome back!

I'm relatively new here but I've found WP a nice place to visit. Whenever it doesn't seem like a nice place I just wander over to a different thread.

I hope you find it a welcoming place this time!
