Hi folks,
I recently accepted my autism after my therapist politely pointed out my symptoms over the last year. I'm 52 and it's a little weird to realize I've been autistic for so long and didn't know it! I took a few online tests and scored 65-70% range. I'm looking for more understanding of myself and meeting other people with autism. I love the name of this web site! I also have a friend who says he landed on the wrong planet -always makes me smile.

Isn't "Wrong Planet" a wonderful description?

And, welcome to WP!

welcome! this is a great group. The best thing about finding one's autism diagnosis is finding that we are not alone, but that there are others out there who actually understand and have lifetimes of experiences and insights to share. Glad you are with us.
