Hi, nice to meet you all :D

I recently received a diagnosis for "Autisim Spectrum Condition" today and thought that after a lifetime of masking/camouflaging and denial that this would be a good place to come and talk about ASC related subjects in order to get a better understanding of my diagnosis and and a greater sense of self/self acceptance.

welcome! Congratulations on your recent diagnosis. Diagnosis for me as an older adult came as a huge relief. So many why's of the past were answered.
Forums like this one are a great place to get info and insights from folks with life times of autistic experience. Ask questions and read past posts, lots of good input here from many good folks. Glad you are with us.

Welcome. I also had autism confirmed recently and I have found this forum very supportive even if you don't post much it's very reassuring to hear other peoples experiences. I have been doing a lot of research about masking and learning how to unmask. Still working on it.
