I was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome when I was 11 or 12. I always kind of knew that there was something, but at that time there wasn’t as much research into autism so no one really knew what was going on.
I then saw a specialist who went through a series of tests with me and gave me my diagnosis. I didn’t know what Asperger syndrome was but as she explained it in more detail it sounded like me.
These days there is much more awareness so more and more people are able to get diagnosed.
I started going to the NAS social group in Clydebank when I was 17. I was far more introverted then so I didn’t do a lot of socialising or interact with people. I thought I would give the group a try and see if I liked it.
