Hi!
I'm new here and want to meet other autistic people and hopefully make some friends. I don't really know anyone else who is autistic, and I'd like to change that!
I'm 30 year old woman newly diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and I live in Illinois. I'm a librarian by training, but in between jobs right now.
My special interests include dogs, Harry Potter, Disney, Christmas, and snow, and I enjoy hiking, camping (in an rv, not a tent!), reading, and playing video games. My husband and I have a Labrador Retriever/Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix named Ranger (in honor of Aragorn from Lord of the Rings).
Glad to be here! :)

Welcome to WP! I am a 67 year-old Aspie (diagnosed age 64) and my biggest disagreement with you is:CATS! Cats are better than dogs. Just ask any cat, they know they are better.

Um...in other words, welcome to WP!
