First time posting 😊
Just wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with autism at a later age.
I am 58 but have struggled with severe anxiety,poor concentration and socialising since I can remember.I have always been told it's anxiety/depression.Despite CBT and other therapies/ medication I remain unchanged.
Recently a younger relative told me she is autistic and when she described how it affected her life she could have been talking about me.
I have made a GP appointment for next month but don't know if I will be taken seriously.I know there isn't a magic cure but part of me needs to know why I have always felt different.
Thanks for any response 😊
