So this is it. At 26 years old I am finally told those three words that will change my life for good.

๐˜๐จ๐ฎ ๐ก๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐š๐ฎ๐ญ๐ข๐ฌ๐ฆ.

Iโ€™m not entirely sure whether it was a surprise or not. I mean it answers as many questions I have had about myself as it asks. The thought that I might have been autistic has been swirling around my head for at least the past decade, and now that it has been confirmed to me Iโ€™ve been struggling to decide whether I am happy about it or not. I now have to ask myself questions such as:-

๐Ÿ. ๐ƒ๐จ๐ž๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ฌ ๐œ๐ก๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฐ๐š๐ฒ ๐ˆ ๐Ÿ๐ž๐ž๐ฅ ๐š๐›๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฉ๐š๐ฌ๐ญ?

๐Ÿ. ๐ˆ๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ก๐ข๐ฌ ๐ฐ๐ก๐ฒ ๐ˆโ€™๐ฏ๐ž ๐š๐ฅ๐ฐ๐š๐ฒ๐ฌ ๐Ÿ๐ž๐ฅ๐ญ ๐๐ข๐Ÿ๐Ÿ๐ž๐ซ๐ž๐ง๐ญ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฆ๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ฉ๐ž๐จ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž?

๐Ÿ‘. ๐–๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐๐จ๐ž๐ฌ ๐ฆ๐ฒ ๐ฉ๐จ๐ฌ๐ญ-๐๐ข๐š๐ ๐ง๐จ๐ฌ๐ข๐ฌ ๐Ÿ๐ฎ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ž ๐ก๐จ๐ฅ๐?

Truth be told, I still have no definitive answers to these, however I am now five months into my post-diagnosis life and I feel I am finally beginning to get to grips with understanding myself and what it means to be an autistic person, although I am still learning new things every day.So where do I go from here? Well, I thought Iโ€™d start this blog as a sort of outlet for me to talk about my life, my feelings, and to share things that interest me whilst maintaining a focus on how autism is affecting my world and my way of life as an adult on the spectrum.
