    I am half way through my ASD assessment with a psychologist. Yesterday we spent almost 5 hours working on the test. When I was at school (even till grad school), I dreaded any kind of examination. However, even though I felt so burnt out at the end of the day, I am glad that I didn’t get into a panic fit (esp. when going through some tough segments of the test). Regarding of the results, I am so proud of myself. Hold on, ha, I have to be done with the second half (an ASD questionnaire for homework) before I can make any conclusion. So…to be continued.

    Hi Wendin! How exciting. It seems to be quite an exhausting exam indeed. Just let us know how it all went. 🙂 I am very curious!

    There were take-home assessments after the appointment. In the period of two weeks I have finished almost 2 dozens tests (including 3 tests that needed an observer’s inputs). I feel lucky that one of my friends from work was willing to put in the time and effort to help me finish the task. Now I just wait. No hurry.

    I have had a feedback session with the psychologist on a Zoom call. I have ASD. That’s the official diagnosis. Life goes on. Now I am going to order some autism awareness T-shirts to wear for the summer and tell Karen from work to go to hell with her emotions. I don’t have time for her. I need to spend more time figuring out my own emotions. It seems life does feel easier after getting my closure. I have never been this proud of myself.
