Diagnosis Confirmed

It’s been a while since my last post. Sorry about that. I’ve been finding a way to live that plays to my strengths. I’ve now set up a website for my creative stuff. I’ll keep blogging here around Autism and Aspergers.

In December I had the second of two appointments with a psychiatrist. Her diagnosis is that I am on the Autistic Spectrum. The term Aspergers is a semantic issue. I use it purely because it points to more or less where on the spectrum I am. It’s shorthand.

I see the subject of the diagnosis come up a lot on the autism forums, and the impact it has. For me, I already knew, so it confirmed my instincts. I don’t see it as a bad thing. It’s simply something I need to modify my environment in places to work around.

It helps me focus in on more suitable types of work environment and role. For the first time in my life, I have plans for the future.
