Finding Out I am Autistic

adult-autism-diagnosis

Finding out I am Autistic at the age of 39, has changed my whole life. Two years ago in the midst of the pandemic I finally went forward with an Adult Autism Assessment.

It was in fact my fourth attempt to go for an assessment, on this final attempt I did not back out.

I had booked three prior assessments but back out of each after saying to other people I was going to go for an assessment. Their negative reactions unnerved me each time and I back out.

Then in October 2020 I found myself in Casualty once more, overwhelmed, exhausted mentally, physically and emotionally. I needed answers but they could not find what exactly was going on for me. I was an enigma of sorts, and in many ways that it how I had felt my whole life.

Entirely faceless and feeling like nobody and a nothing. I could not find where I belonged and spent my whole life trying to fit in but failing miserably.

After that final admission to A&E in Mayo General in October 2020, I decided it was time to get the answers I was searching for my whole life.

To make New Years Eve and the dawn of 2023 I have uploaded my very first Youtube Video talking about my experiences of finding out I am Autistic at the age of 39.
