Some days it's hard to face the reality that going undiagnosed with ASD and ADHD until I was an adult has negatively impacted my life in almost every way it could have. My mental health, physical health, relationships, jobs, housing, finances, and so much more have all suffered because of my lack of support. I feel like I should be so much further in life, but then I tell myself I'm buying a house with a partner I adore and we're finally starting our life together, and that's so much further down the conventional ladder than many of the people I know. I should be grateful. And I am. I'm just also mourning the childhood I needed. Does anyone else relate?
