Hello, 75 years old with mild autism that causes me problems sometimes. I was 60 and retired before I knew that so many of the difficulties since being at school were due to being on the spectrum. I do not say much so that's my introduction

    Welcome to the community @essenbob :) How are you doing today? It's great to have you with us. 

    Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself and your story. I think many people find that they can make more sense of their past experiences once they have a greater understanding of their condition.

    Please feel free to take a look around the community, and get stuck in. We have a category for discussions relating to autism and neurodiversity, so you might like to take a look through that. 

    I can see that you've tagged your discussion with the 'energy bills' tag- did you have a question about energy bills that you wanted to ask us?

    Good morning @essenbob :) 

    Thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself and your experiences. It's wonderful to have you here at the online community and if you have any further questions, please feel free to ask away.

    As @Tori_Scope mentioned, you tagged energy bills in your comment, so if you have any queries relating to this, please just let us know. I will also move your comment into our autism and neurodiversity category, in the hope that our other members will see your comment too.
