Hi everyone,

My name is kelcey and I was just diagnosed with autism today. My therapist suggested this forum as a way to get more information and some support from people who may understand. I have always struggled with making and keeping friends. I have some sensory issues including bed time routine and clothing and planning meals. I guess this I always thought it was just my anxiety or depression until recently social media and therapy put all the pieces together. I have autism. It makes sense. I’m incredibly smart but get burnt out easily. I love making lists and planning ! Everything seems to make sense but at the same time I’m so overwhelmed. I hope someone can relate to this and I can meet some new people!

welcome, congratulations on the diagnosis and wise Dr who advised you come here. Ask loads of questions, the forum is filled with people who have years experience with autism and somebody is sure to have good input and info to share with you in almost any situation or with any question. One of the best things about learning about my autism was that I learned I was not alone, that there were others who understood! Glad you are with us.
