    Hello and welcome @ashleym1976 it's great to hear from you :) 

    If you wanted to share your experience with other members who have autism, a good place to start would be our Autism and Neurodiversity category.

    Do you feel like you're getting enough support for your mental health at the moment, as you've mentioned having to manage depression and anxiety?
