I was just recently diagnosed in October with high functioning autism and dyslexia and spatial and visual perception disabilities. I am 33 and I was bullied by a lot of people my whole life and have a history relationship problems. Now that I am on the right med combo I can actually sit still and be productive during the day. Before I couldnt sit still and had to constantly be needed by someone and was very impulsive. I was in AA for 4 years and had continuous sobriety but I left because the environment was not healthy and I was almost sexually assaulted by another woman. I found out when I left that I could drink normal and was not an alcoholic. Labeling myself as an alcoholic was damaging to my self esteem and making most of my behaviors worse. The minute I left AA I lost all my needy behavior and stopped my overdependence on people. I find that I try hard to fit in and appear normal and its so exhausting. I constantly worry that I am going to offend someone and hurt them really badly. I find it exhausting to go to parties and talk to people. I prefer doing projects by myself rather than in groups. I lost all my friends from AA once I left. But I am developing a closer relationships with my family. I have three close friends that are for life. Ive changed so much now with the meds. I am able to control my emotions better and take space when necessary if I feel too emotional. I stopped hearing voices in my head. Right now I have to undergo some genetic testing because my psychologist thinks I have a chromosomal deletion. My parents are being super supportive. I had these symptoms from a young age but no one was able to diagnose it correctly. Now I feel like I have the answer as to why I have always been so different all my life.
