Welcome. I’m a 58 years old european man. In december 2017 I was diagnosed with Mild Autistic Spectrum Disorder, formerly known as Asperger Syndrome. This outcome wasn’t completely unexpected: I have known for a long time that there were some differences in my personality and behavior. Yet, for me, to have an ASD diagnosis changes things (at the bottom of the page you’ll find a list of acronyms, with links to explanations). So I have embarked in a journey of discovery, and re-discovery, of my life and self in the light of this fact – an interesting task, at my age. I am trying to figure out what happened, what is what, and to find strategies to manage the unpleasant aspects of my neuro-biological situation (just like everybody else). As I am a word-oriented person, I figured that writing would help me. Then I thought that perhaps it could also help sharing with other people, so I made this blog. That will be anonymous for now, I hope it doesn’t bother you. You can always contact me through the link at the top of this page.
