I’m 52 years old and wish that asd would have been a recognized diagnosis in the 80s. I definitely would have been identified as an aspie. I am finally being assessed but wonder what will change for me post diagnosis? I’ve had to figure out how to do life and stay sane without any assistance but it has taken a long time. Intermittent solitude and earbuds help me from getting overwhelmed, but I still struggle with many sensory issues. Small talk is painful and my desire to socialize is pretty much in the negatives. Certain noises make me instantly angry and the demand to be social is exhausting. Any advice would be much appreciated.
