A little about my background
My name is Lisa and I have two wonderful children and a very patient husband, I am currently doing a masters in psychology, with the hope of a career in mental health.
Life before diagnosis felt like I was a lost soul, floating around in some messy, complicated and confused vortex in space. I always felt as if I never really belonged anywhere and was never fully accepted for my true-self. That was until I was finally diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome at 34 and ADHD at 35. I'm early on in my journey, but the realisation that I am different (in the best way possible) has been difficult on times, but without a doubt is the best thing that has happened to me.
Deciding to put myself out into the world and discuss my previous and current struggles has not been easy, but I am finding it's brought a lot of benefits for my mental health, and more importantly accepting who I am, I hope it helps people in the same way. I am brutally honest about my life and I will share everything, probably to much in my husbands opinion (sorry in advance).
Note* I am not qualified in any way to advise on diagnosis, medication, or any form of treatment, if you are struggling please ask for help, I can point you in the right direction of official organizations and charities, so please just ask. This is my personal blog about my personal experiences and what I've learned, with the hope to help and connect to others.
