Adult ASD Test - The Results

Note: The other steps in my testing can be found here and here.

I FINALLY have my results in my hand!

First of all, I want to acknowledge there are lots of pros and cons to getting officially tested and there are a few other bloggers who have given very sage advice. I'll link to them here when I find them again.

For me, so far I see a HUGE benefit because I got more information than I was expecting. In addition to clarifying my ASD-status, I was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD). This is great information. I've been recommended to see an OT to get some help for myself. I feel like I'm finally being heard, understood and better able to understand myself. It's amazing to realize all sort of things in  my life had a reason - that I'm not crazy! I can't really explain how freeing that is. It feels like I am just blossoming and with the right help, I can be even better than I was before.

Some people call their diagnosis date their New Birthday. I totally get that now.

I've spent the last few years getting the right help for my son. It's my turn now (he's doing really well!) and it's a really great feeling.

Happy New Birthday to ME!
