Just saying hello

larissaslarissas Member Posts: 2 Listener
I was searching the internet to understand who else is out there with similar circumstances to mine and trying to learn more... and found threads here that relate! So just saying hello. I'm Larissa, I'm 46, I live in the US (California) and I was just dx with CP and autism at age 46... and I've got several other medical things and still some unexplained ones that might be a hypermobile joint disorder. So I'm just... listening and learning. I'm also a mom and I work in tech but am currently out on medical leave. Hello!
