Hello @Sparraneil and welcome to the community.
First, remember that everyone is individual. You know the most about yourself and this diagnosis doesn't change that. As you said, it may help explain things but it doesn't tell you what all this means for you in your life.
Are you looking to find out more or talk to others who can help you figure out what this all means? Couple of places you might look:
