My greatest challenge is dealing with the effects of childhood abuse I suffered until I was 11 years old. I haven't spoken to my family in 10 years. I think it really messed up my brain and that I might be on the autism spectrum but was never diagnosed. I am in the process of seeing if I can get a diagnosis now. I have learned a lot about autism lately, and now I see other adults who struggle a lot and I think that they may have it too but were never diagnosed and don't even have a clue that they may be autistic. I wonder if I should say anything to them about it. I think that if I had a diagnosis then maybe I could help other adults who may have it too. I am hoping that I can get an appointment soon but I think there is a waiting list. I will find out this week when I may be able to get in to be seen.
