30+ adult diagnosis

I've just been diagnosed at 35.

I'm interested in hearing experiences others have had after being diagnosed at this stage of life.

How it changed how you think and feel?

Work, family, friends etc

Did you tell anyone before diagnosis?

 

I've just recently figured out i'm on the spectrum. I'm 37.

I told some online friends but nobody in real life.

I've told my friend offline, and after i explained a bit he said there was a glitch in the matrix :)

I was diagnosed at 51. I held a picture quiz via Facebook. Each day I posted pictures of famous Aspie's and asked what the connection was. When someone got it I told everyone of my diagnosis.

I was diagnosed at 41. I felt relieved, because I had often thought there was something wrong with me and I didn't understand why I felt differently to other people, and that provided a lot of answers. It helped me and others understand who I am better. I haven't told anyone except close family. If I hadn't got the diagnosis, I would be in despair.

Don't really mind tbh. The chances of anyone i know reading it are very slim.

It's a shame that you have been made to feel that way. I am 100% open about my Aspieness and have no real problems and lots of understanding.
