It’s a relief to know why I’m different — I’m autistic!

Another brilliant piece. Again, I can relate very much to the things you describe. I got diagnosed at the age of 38 and for me it surely was a revelation. I went through a particularly difficult childhood, my school days were just like hell and I sort of stumbled my way through my teenage years and early adulthood. To finally discover what it is that makes me the person I am really opened up a whole new perspective. I am still learning to understand myself better and I hope the few people close to me do so as well. It’s a long process, but it feels like I’m on the right track now at long last.
