So glad to read this, even if some of it is from awhile ago. I have an appointment in two days to get a diagnosis. I’m 58. My dad was 88 when we got his diagnosis. Seems my coping skills have gotten worse as I get older, or perhaps I am just so very tired of having to conform all the time. I just want to stay in my room by myself. I am feeling so very depressed. I can relate to feeling misunderstood and hated every day, and how I am always offending people. I feel like I should have “learned how” by now at age 58. I feel hopeless.
