Hello,

My name is Evelyn and I'm 47 years old, live in eastern PA in the US and was diagnosed with ADHD and autism last year. It's been a fascinating journey finding out I had these two disorders that explained so much about my innermost thoughts and feelings. I've discovered that I love talking to and being friends with other Neurodivergent people, and have done a deep dive into the subjects of autism and ADHD for the past year or so. I'm interested in this forum after hearing it described on a podcast about Neurodiversity. I am still working on figuring out how things flow on this site but wanted to say hi! and that I'm glad to be here :D

welcome, late diagnosis really gives a lot of answers to all those "whys" of the past. I was diagnosed at 68, what a relief! Glad you found us.

Welcome to WP! I hope you discover it to be a nice place.

I was 64 when I learned I had an Autism Spectrum Disorder, Level 1 (Mild).

It was wonderful to learn my growing opinion about people was right!

(The ADHD stuff, however, is not my department. That's my bride's neighborhood.)
