Late diagnosed neurodivergents, how old were you when you got diagnosed?

At the same time, I was a little upset and angry that I spent 30 years being confused as to why I didn't fit in with a lot of social groups and why I just wasn't fitting in with my peers as well as I thought I should have. So I would like to know everyone's input

But I also don't really know the route to go about getting diagnosed, especially since, yeah, I'm in my thirtys and I don't know if it has affected me, but it certainly has made me think of myself as different or not being able to fit in. So I get what you're saying that I would be a late diagnosed person as well

@Trock91 Congratulations!!! And welcome!

Sometimes it presents his tears and sometimes it presents his anger and I lash out for the stupidest, smallest things that don't even matter but I knew I was reaching that state of fight or flight my body was vibrating and it's irrational but it's like one thing piles on top of another. On top of another

Not because I'm happy they went through that experience, but it tells me I'm not alone and I spent my whole life feeling very alone. And so I'm so happy that you posted about this. And this is a topic I'm very passionate about. I really want to educate parents more on what to look for in ADHD in girls. I know you are ADHD and autism, and there's actually quite a bit of overlap with some of the symptoms
