...looking back and reframing life...

“To find out you are autistic is quite a realization to have in your teens, but in your 40s or 50s it means you have to look back at your whole life and reframe everything; every incident, every moment, with this new lens to look through. It's like getting glasses after spending your whole life near-sighted. Obviously, the longer you've gone without the diagnosis the more work you have to do in looking back. And in some cases, the more damage to your spirit, psyche, and relationships you have to undo.”
