Hi guys

I just signed up after hearing about wrong planet for the first time not too long ago. I'm almost 32 years old, from Scotland, cis guy, gay/queer, he/him...I first started to learn about autism and neurodivergence in 2019, I quickly realised I was ADHD and although I also suspected I was autistic, it's really taken me until recent months to fully work it out for myself and feel confident identifying as an autistic person. I've struggled to function in a lot of ways throughout my life, like having a job and maintaining friendships and relationships with neurotypical people and it's super nice to have answers now but I do feel quite alone a lot of the time, so it would be nice to connect with some new people on here and maybe find some sense of kinship or whatever.

I'm gonna try to slowly check out the forums here, hopefully without getting too overwhelmed :lol:

Welcome to WP! I hope you enjoy it here.

I hope you have found these two online quizzes:
<=>- Autism-Spectrum Quotient Test 
<=>- Aspie-Quiz Registering is optional! 

They can't give you an official diagnosis, of course. But they might help you assess your suspicions about being on the Autism Spectrum. It sounds as if this might be more complicated a matter in your case...my understanding is that the high end of ADHD and the low end of Autism share some traits so it can be confusing.
