    Default Adults with Autism?

    Hi,
    I was wondering if anyone has gone through a diagnosis as an adult for themselves or their partner/relative.

    If you have a partner with Autism or you have Autism yourself.



    I wanted to say hello We are currently going through the process of being assessed (my partner @ age 33 )

    It's scary to think this could have been picked up earlier and we wouldn't be at breaking point so much. But i guess these things can't always be helped!


    Look forward to talking to you!

    Default Adults with Autism?

    My husband and I have discussed the possibility of it. With regard to myself. It was also brought up independently by a mental health nurse I had been talking to.
    I have a son with autism but there are also very noticeable instances of it (undiagnosed and diagnosed) throughout my family.
    I have similar traits but it could also be learned behaviour I suppose, from growing up in my family.

    I don't know. I am hesitant to go through the assessment process, namely because I don't like to ask questions I don't know the answer to. So I would only go through this if I was absolutely sure.

    I believe from memory @Zombie_eyes went through this process, however I haven't seen her around on the forum for quite some time (which is a shame, she's definitely missed around here).
