quarridors: Not high on sugar (September 2010)
I spent this morning at Highbury Hospital where two specialists spent four and a half hours giving me intensive diagnostic assessments. This was following a detailed screening interview with a different specialist in June.

I was worried that the results would be ambiguous and there'd be weeks more to wait before I got an answer (as this delay is apparently quite common), but thankfully both the specialists thought my traits were clear enough that they could happily give me a definitive, conclusive and unambiguous diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome (a type of 'high functioning' autism).

Why, how and what's next... )

I already announced this news on Twitter and got some positive reactions from other people on the autistic spectrum and some very tentative reactions from others, so I just want to be clear that this is a hugely positive thing for me. I've been obsessed with understanding what was different about me for twenty years, since my first year of secondary school, so it's wonderful to finally know for certain that this is the answer!

quarridors: (Toclafane)
This is the journal formerly known as '36', now renamed to quarridors to match my usernames on every other site I use :)

I've also set up a new deviantART profile and moved over the wildlife art and Doctor Who fan art digital paintings I'm happiest with.

It's good to have all my different accounts under the same handle now!
