Hello my name is Alexandra [Removed by moderator - full name]

I am 36 years old and have battled with depression and anxiety all my life.

I have recently been diagnosed with Autism to be more specific Aspergis.

Any support or information anyone can provide will be extremely helpful.

Looking to make friendly and respectful connections online.

Many thanks x

    Hello and welcome to the community @Allymcd84 :) Thanks for sharing a bit about yourself, as this will help other members get to know you a little better. It's great to have you on board.

    You might like to start by taking a look in our categories for discussions relating to autism and Asperger's syndrome, and mental health problems. You can also chat with our other members about anything you like in the coffee lounge.

    Did you have any specific questions you wanted to ask? Getting a new diagnosis can bring up lots of feelings and questions, so please feel free to share these whenever you feel comfortable to :)

    Are you currently receiving any support for your mental health?

    Edit: I've removed your surname from your post. This is because posting personal details, including your full name, breaches our house rules. This is to keep both you, and other members, safe.
