In 2019 I carried out a study to explore how late-diagnosed autistic women (like me) managed their health and wellbeing. This is the first of four blog posts describing the themes I identified when analysing the interviews
Despite my late discovery of being autistic, I am learning to flick on the switch of possibility and reinvention, instead of obsessing over lost time.
I have sought this feeling so often in my life in both country and city; to still my mind I simply walk, walk on the earth, and connect with my surroundings.
Having this self-knowledge gives me autonomy, having the support to put it into practice gives me health and happiness.
