Hello everyone,

I'm fairly new to this site and just discovered this section of the forums. It's been almost a year since I was officially diagnosed with ASD and I'm still adjusting I suppose. I was diagnosed due to severe burnout and autistic regression, from which I'm still recovering. In any event, I'm very happy to be here and I appreciate any and all who take the time to read this post.

Hi! I’m new here too, just became active today.

Man, I remember when I was 15 I was going through some pretty serious burnout, too. I’m super glad you got diagnosed; that would’ve done a lot for me if it had happened back then. Teenage years are HARD.

I hope that things are looking up for you!

EDIT: Hold up, I read your info wrong lmaooo. My bad. Either way, hope things are going okay!

Thanks a lot! I'm not sure which info you read wrong, but I think your post is relevant to what I wrote. I'm doing better every day, but I still have a lot of recovery to do.

Also, even though I'm new, I'd like to welcome you to the Wrong Planet forums! I hope you are enjoying your time here as much as I am.

Yeah, burnout is no joke. I'm glad to hear that you're on the mend. I hope you enjoy your time here. It's a good place, imho, some good folks. Hello and welcome :D

I can guess...and then I have to wonder how surprised turnleftaticela was to see that I was more than two thousand years old! (But, hey, aren't we supposed to often look younger than our age? I'm sure I don't look a day over one thousand!)
