Comments: I am a deans list student, I am a loving girlfriend, I am a hard worker, I am a talented photographer, I am a go-go girl. I am a dreamer, I am Autistic. Despite that or perhaps because of that I am who I am. I am successful and happy. Being diagnosed at 21 was the turning point in my life when i finally started making sense to myself. I wasn't happy before I understood this part of me.yet much as i was the contridiction of myself with out a diagnosis at times I tend to be the contridiction of what I am supposed to be. I am a very social person and while I'm not always the best at it I try... I really do. I don't want to sit back and let this diagnosis determine what I can and can't do. Cause the skys the limit... I may just take a different path...
