Just hoping to try and meet other people like me. My diagnosis has started to sink in now and I feel like I’ve got answers to the questions I have been asking. Along with that, so many other questions that need answering. I don’t know anyone else with autism who isn’t in a care setting and it’s debilitating and isolating. The general perception of people with autism as far as I can see isn’t really a good one, especially after working in care for the past few years. I know I’m a lot luckier than some but seeing/knowing what you lack compared to other people around you is disheartening - just long to have people to talk to about things that aren’t doctors/specialists who are paid to listen. Any suggestions on what to do next would be much appreciated
