Why I Bothered to Pursue an Autism Diagnosis at 63 Years Old

Hi Carly,
I came across this on “The Mighty” website and wondered if it might be possible/ appropriate to include it on the Axia contributions “page” ?
It kind of is on the lines of what was being discussed at the recent PDSG, and online, about coping as one gets older.
I hope all is well at Team Axia, thank you so much for being there.
Kindest regards

    Thanks for sharing this article Helen, it was an extremely interesting read (which I found I resonated with much of), and is indeed very relevant to the discussion started at the last P-D.S.G.

    I was 62 when I had my diagnosis last year and as the author of this piece says it didn’t cure anything but explained a lot and even just that makes life just a little easier.
    Thanks, Helen, for posting.

      Hi Terri, thank you for this.
      I was 60 when diagnosed, after living all that time feeling “wrong and alienesque” it did explain alot I agree.
