took me much longer than that, but I did not get much practice. Until I was able to practice a lot I did not do well. Pushing you to graduate in that short of time is unfair if you do not get extra help and support you need during that time, which includes many hours behind the wheel.

"and" in a conversation means enough with the details, get to the point. My love of detail and 'side- explanations" often gets in the way of discussion and interchange of ideas, I have experienced this frequently, especially from those close to me. I don't think it is meant in a hosti...

I like puzzles to solve, love doing research but not about personal problems or emotional stuff. Maybe it comes down to the individual and the things they do best. I was not able to overcome struggles with interpersonal relationships or social/emotional things without help and explanations and altho...

yeah, I was surprised at diagnosis in my late 60s too! It was a huge relief in a lot of ways to learn everything was not after all "all my fault". It took 70 years to get this far, 3 of those years I have now understood about my autism. I suspect I'll be sorting old hurts and experiences w...

welcome, diagnosis at an older age can come as a shock, for me it was a relief because it explained so much of my past and answered most of those painful "why" questions we all have. Glad you are with us!
