Just to say hello and to introduce myself. I think I'm yet another of the many women who have reached later life and finally worked out why my life has often been a real struggle. I'm 56 now and on a very long waiting list to see if I can get my strong suspicion confirmed with a formal diagnosis. I'm going through a big upheaval at the moment as my 17 year civil partnership has just ended. My ex partner thinks she has ADHD and I think she is also on the spectrum and this most likely accounts for a lot of our relationship problems. It's just a shame we did not work it out sooner as we would have understood each other a lot better and maybe we would now be in a very different place, rather than me being back to living with just my 2 dogs again. They are great company but I really miss my ex-partner's random, sparky, creative mind. I imagine the Wrong Planet inhabitants also have some pretty amazing minds which I hope I get the opportunity to connect with.
Best wishes to you all.

Welcome to Wrong Planet. It took me my entire lifetime to figure out who I am and how I got here. I am now 74 years old. It is an amazing tale that began when I was a small child. It is quite simple really. It was due to a severe brain injury at around 3 years old. It produced a brain flip. The left side of my brain died and my right side stepped in and became me. Eventually my left side came back online but switched places and performed the duties of the right side of my brain (that exist in my sleep state). I was an entirely different person.

Thinking back I wouldn't change a thing.
